Design to Logistics Jonathan Poland

Design for logistics involves designing products with the entire supply chain in mind, including manufacturing, packaging, shipping, warehousing, merchandising, and repackaging for returns. This approach takes into consideration a range of factors, including cost efficiency, environmental impact, security, and marketing. By designing products with logistics in mind, companies can optimize their supply chain processes and reduce costs, while also considering the impact of their products on the environment and the needs of their customers. The following are common examples.

Manufacturing
Producing an entire furniture line from the same wood and standard parts in order to simplify planning, manufacturing and supply chain.

Flat Packs
Designing products to fit efficiently into a rectangular box.

Shipping
Designing products to fit in boxes that fit efficiently into standard shipping containers.
