Abstract

This work describes a suggested scheme to define a distribution strategy to increase the level of agility for a distribution network. This is based on the application of a scheme for increasing efficiency in the distribution operations on a detailed level. The Total Operational Vehicle Effectiveness (TOVE) index is used as the main performance measure. Availability, performance and quality wastes are identified using a Transportation Value Stream Map (TVSM) of the transportation operation. The implementation of the improvement initiatives is still in progress but the projected and available results are provided.
