TradeNet is “Leaning” into improvements these days. Teams comprised of employees are making it happen.

The company’s second “Lean” event took place this week. Representatives of several departments spent two full days determining how to improve the inventory system. The time was spent reviewing and mapping the current system, getting input from peers and submitting a plan for improvement. In other words… Lots of work! The good news is the Lean team came up with a solid plan to streamline processes and allow better control of inventory storage and ordering.

The Lean Enterprise system helps improve quality, eliminate waste and reduce delays. Doing so is intended to allow TradeNet to better serve customers.
