Executive Summary

Facing ever increased challenges to cut costs and improve efficiencies our client’s brief was to identify operational cost savings using Lean processes.

Over a 6 month period the projects was established and lead to revise packaging design and reduce product costs. By reducing the size of the packaging savings were also passed on to the client by giving substantial transportation and storage savings.

“Navigator Solutions are straight forward and very reliable. In starting-up (logistics) facilities, with high pressure and heavy conditions, they performed well. They have a hands-on, team player approach. They translated situations into the key-problems, opportunities and optional solutions. I liked working with them”
