COSTS FOR IMPLEMENTING LOGISTICS INTO THE COMPANY

Man M., Nowicka- Skowron M.*


Abstract

The ways of approaching the logistic problems need the use of some varied techniques and means, and the elaboration of a logistic project - which would aim the entire company - mobilises  multiple personnel for a period of a few months and claims the intervention of logisticians within the logistic consultancy office, whom shall also act after putting the logistic project into practice. The accomplishment of any logistic wide change within  the company needs an array of activities that may be grouped into: activities aiming for the improvement of complying with the contractual terms for an immediately subsequent month; activities having as aim the introduction of a logistic wide progress;  activities having as result the accomplishment and application of some company logistic projects. (JEL: D61, D30, L22)


Key words: logistics costs, logistics project, logistics implementation.

Introduction

The use of the method of analysis and synthesis corroborated with the method of comparison in time and space highlights that the accomplishment of a logistic project and its implementation  into the company, including the establishment of costs it creates, needs a multitude of activities which may be structured thusly:
Activities aiming the accomplishment of an immediate profitability
Such activities are based upon three principles, such as: consideration of globalising the operations as work technique, meaning the determination of the priority of the processes in relation to their component operations; intensification  of the concerns of coordinating the information with the technological operations; synchronising the immediate individual objectives with the finality of the logistic project. See figure 1.
a) Priority of the process in relation to the component operations
The study of any operation must take into account its site - first of all - within the process it is part of and therefore within the flow where it belongs to. For accomplishing an efficient logistic change, it is recommended  to use some questionnaires, the filling of which shall offer answers to the following questions: Do you always provide the coherence of the operational with the strategic? Do you thoroughly know the representation of the flows? Have you repositioned the  functions? Have you performed the necessary upstream and downstream standardisations?  Are you prudent enough in framing the informational system of the company ? Have you communicated the data you have for drawing up the logistic project ?

Summary


The logistic projects understood as an assembly of logistic demarches have an impact over the structure as well as over the companys culture. The structural changes have led to modifying  the contents of some positions in the company and to creating new rules in the dialogue and exchanges with the logistic suppliers and providers. The thorough cultural changes of structures are those performed on time. They keep the role as engine of logistics  and encumber the occurrence of some restrictions at a given time, in the way of applying certain competitive logistics in practice.
