Abstract

In the supply chains, packaging logistics is an important component of the material and information stream, which ensures an adequate level of service for all participants in the chain. It is particularly important from the logistics operator's point of view to ensure proper (efficient and economical) packaging rotation between the chain links. Disruptions in this area may lead to delays, additional costs, and other difficulties that ultimately translate into a decrease in efficiency and performance in the supply chain. The paper presents the possibility of using a tool (A3 report) in improving the pallet turnover of a logistic operator.

Keywords: process improvement, packaging flow, pallet turnover, logistics operator, A3 report
