At our company Lean Management has its own name: The Rudolph Logistics System
With the "Rudolph Logistics System" (RLS) we have established a Lean Management system for the Rudolph Logistics Group and in doing so have written three essential principles into the company DNA: We are always guided by customer benefits; we strive for perfection through continual improvement; we mobilize all employees.
The Rudolph Logistics System, which was conceived for the Rudolph Logistics Group in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Circuits ISS, provides an organizational and methodological foundation for the successful implementation of Lean Management throughout the whole company group.
A lean logistics system isn't just a set of management tools for us – much more it is an essential part of our company philosophy.
We want to provide you with logistics services of the highest caliber. You can depend on the fact that we will continually be living up to our claim of "Reaching more". This is only achievable when we are continually questioning and improving the processes we use to provide services as well as the processes that handle support and administrative functions.
The Rudolph Logistics System provides the basis for lean processes, flat hierarchies, clear and meaningful reporting as well as for the development of our employees.
Here's what you can be sure of at Rudolph:
- We have established an effective system of continual improvement. This lets us accomplish more with less effort and expense and is the basis for continual increases in our efficiency. You benefit from honest and trustworthy cooperation in the optimization of your supply chain.
- We simplify and standardize processes where it makes sense. This makes your operations more stable and less susceptible to errors. And guarantees you secure and consistently high quality in our services.
- At the same time all processes remain as flexible as possible. For you that means that we can react quickly when your requirements change – for example, as a result of production fluctuations.
- The Rudolph Logistics System has been designed for sustainability. Using maturity assessment tools we review how the Rudolph Logistics System is functioning and where we need to improve. This way you can be sure that where it says "Lean Management" on the outside, there is also real Lean Management on the inside.
