UPS trucks never turn left

Find out why UPS trucks never turn left.  Senior VP Bob Stoffel explains how a policy of only making right turns saves the company both time and money.  Great story on why UPS is one of the great supply chain companies.

  • “The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.” ~ Bill Gates
  • “If you don’t pay appropriate attention to what has your attention, it will take more of your attention than it deserves.”  ~ David Allen
  • “Every day we are paying more for energy than we should due to poor insulation, inefficient lights, appliances, and heating and cooling equipment – money we could save by investing in energy efficiency.” ~ Bernie Sanders
  • “A particular shot or way of moving the ball can be a player’s personal signature, but #efficiency of performance is what wins the game for the team.” ~ Pat Riley
  • “Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.” ~ Thomas Watson
  • “Obviously, the highest type of efficiency is that which can utilize existing material to the best advantage.” ~ Jawaharlal Nehru
  • “Action is the foundational key to all success.” ~ Pablo Picasso
  • “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.” ~ Peter F. Drucker
  • “Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.” ~ Stephen Covey

IKEA’s Supply Chain

IKEA has an amazing supply chain.  IKEA’s founder, Ingvar Kamprad, seems to have many similarities with Sam Walton.

IKEA Quotes:

  • “To design a desk which may cost $1,000 is easy for a furniture designer, but to design a functional and good desk which shall cost $50 can only be done by the very best.” ~ Ingvar Kamprad, IKEA founder.
  • “I could regularly travel first class, but having money in abundance doesn’t seem like a good reason to waste it. Why should I choose first class? To be offered a glass of champagne from the air hostess? If it helped me arrive at my destination more quickly, then maybe.” ~ Ingvar Kamprad, Supply Chain Guru
  • “Making mistakes is the privilege of the active. It is always the mediocre people who are negative, who spend their time proving that they were not wrong.” ~ Ingvar Kamprad
  • “Waste of resources is a mortal sin at IKEA.”  ~ Ingvar Kamprad
  • “I’m a bit tight with money, but so what? I look at the money I’m about to spend on myself and ask myself if IKEA’s customers can afford it… I could regularly travel first class, but having money in abundance doesn’t seem like a good reason to waste it.. If there is such a thing as good leadership, it is to give a good example. I have to do so for all the IKEA employees.”  ~ Ingvar Kamprad

Logistics Quotes.

  • “Why not make the work easier and more interesting so that people do not have to sweat? The Toyota style is not to create results by working hard. It is a system that says there is no limit to people’s creativity. People don’t go to Toyota to ‘work’ they go there to ‘think’” ~ Taiichi Ohno
  • “If you can’t describe what you are doing as a process, you don’t know what you’re doing.”  ~ W. Edwards Deming
  • “Focus on the lowest total cost of ownership not the lowest price.” ~ EverythingSupplyChain.com
  • “Every breakthrough business idea begins with solving a common problem. The bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity. I discovered a big one when I took apart an IBM PC. I made two interesting discoveries: The components were all manufactured by other companies, and the system that retailed for $3,000 cost about $600 in parts.” ~ Michael Dell
  • “If you think of standardization as the best that you know today, but which is to be improved tomorrow; you get somewhere.”  ~ Henry Ford, founder Ford Motor Company
  • “Eighty-five percent of the reasons for failure are deficiencies in the systems and process rather than the employee. The role of management is to change the process rather than badgering individuals to do better.” ~ W. Edwards Deming
  • “Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers who can cut through the argument debate and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.”  ~ Colin Powell

“Leaders win through logistics. Vision, sure. Strategy, yes. But when you go to war, you need to have both toilet paper and bullets at the right place at the right time. In other words, you must win through superior logistics.”  ~ Tom Peters

It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!

You’re better than that!” ~ Rocky Balboa

If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.” ~ Vince Lombardi
  • “We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.”  ~ Marilyn Monroe
