Abstract

Industrial engineers always want to implement optimization techniques in all activities performed in an organization, which is only possible by synchronizing multiple activities of each department, and combining it in a way, which is optimized as per efficiency, effectiveness, productivity and profit are concerned. Organization plant managers and logistics providers have long been dissatisfied with extensive waiting times and severe on-site traffic congestion. This research paper highlights activities of logistics management in this organization which covers activities like determination of supply chain driver affecting logistics and supply chain management of an organization, analysis of current vehicles freights which particularly involves number of freights per day, checking how effectively collection plan needs are fulfilled by current vehicles running, implementation of new techniques to improve present working system, scheduled such that the total weighted tardiness is minimized, initiation of practices which organization has to do for withstanding sustainability in logistics management, estimation of cost saving from implementation of new techniques and checking feasibility of conducting these activities repetitively in long run.
