Kanban is a Japanese word for the visible record, loosely translated means card, billboard, or sign. Popularized by Toyota Corporation, it uses standard containers or lot sizes to deliver needed parts to the assembly line just in time for use.

In the context of logistics, a Kanban is a system that helps manage the flow of inventory and materials. By tracking what is being sent where and when it is being sent, the Kanban system can help to optimize the movement of goods and ensure that everything arrives when it is needed.

The benefits of using a Kanban system include:

  • Reduced lead times.
  • Reduced inventory levels.
  • Improved visibility into the supply chain.
  • Improved coordination between suppliers and customers.

If you are looking to improve the efficiency of your logistics operations, Kanban could be a great solution for you.
