What is Milk Run Logistics
Milkrun concept in intralogistics
Synonym (s): milk run concept
At the Milk run Concept is a logistics concept to optimize internal and external production logistics. The material should be made available efficiently and as required by the transport vehicle, including trailer, delivering to fixed stations on a route and transporting it away in exchange for new goods, empty packaging or load carriers. The principle is based on the traditional milk delivery in the USA, which was based on the consumption of the individual households. New milk bottles were only delivered if a corresponding number of empty containers could be collected in front of the front door. For the milk run optimized material flow, this means in today's practice that this is only made available in the quantities in which it is consumed. In a logistical supply cycle, routes are defined that are supplied at fixed times and receive empties in exchange. The concept is based on known consumption values so that delivery takes place as required.
Two types of milk run
In-house milk runs usually transport the materials or goods from the source (e.g. central warehouse) to various sinks (e.g. assembly lines). In this way, various goods can be delivered on time to previously defined consumption stations, while empty packaging or load carriers are collected at the same time and disposed of or recharged in the same step. The internal transport costs are reduced enormously and a continuous supply of all production points is ensured. The inter-company milk run conveys the materials from various sources within a transport cycle to several customers. The aim is always to have a vehicle that is as full as possible and with as little empty travel as possible. Since the time windows and deliveries are fixed, the factories or companies supplied can minimize their storage costs.

The advantages of milk run carts
With the Milkrun concept, storage and transport costs can be saved and material planning can be made more efficient. Fixed time windows enable precise planning and just-in-time delivery. In addition, the disposal logistics can also be integrated into the cycle, so that a sustainable, ecologically sensible solution is created overall.
