Milkrun is a logistics strategy, which is used in industrial production processes to ensure efficient and reliable delivery of materials and parts to production facilities. This strategy is used to minimize inventory, increase production efficiency and reduce logistics costs.
Milkrun consists in the fact that the driver or carrier responsible for logistics meets several suppliers and transports parts and materials in one trip. This makes it possible to minimize the time and costs associated with logistics, as it avoids repeated trips and increases the efficiency of transport.
Milkrun can be organized in different ways, including the use of special logistics vehicles. Or the use of the existing transport network. The goal is to ensure efficient and reliable delivery of materials and parts to production facilities at the right time and in the right quantity.
The benefits of the Milkrun strategy include:< /span>
- Reduction of stocks of materials and parts
- Increase efficiency production
- Minimization of logistics time and costs
- Increasing delivery reliability and minimizing the risk of delays
- Improvement of planning and management of production processes.
Milkrun is often used in industries such as automotive or machine manufacturing where it is critical. So that materials and parts arrive at the production facilities at the right time and in the right quantity.
