MPI Distribution & Logistics Study
The Study examines:
Operations – The study examines the operations practices/programs in place at facilities, (e.g., lean thinking) as well as services performed for customers (e.g., kitting). Distribution executives also reported operating expenses as a percentage of sales — and how those expenses are distributed — as well as critical performance measures (perfect order fulfilment, lines picked per hour, warehouse capacity utilization, etc.).
Supply Chain and Logistics – This section focuses on the number of suppliers and customers associated with typical facilities; percentages of imported supplier goods and products exported; and criteria used to evaluate suppliers.
Human Resources – This section identifies the number of employees in typical facilities; allocation of employees by role; use of temporary workers; deployment of human-resources (HR) programs; and key HR performance measures.
Assets and Technology – This section reviews past-year investments by facilities; types of information technology systems and applications in use; cloud computing usage; and adoption of Internet of Things technologies.
