This project comes from the experience in logistics of the authors, working in private companies and teaching in the University in Manresa (County of Bages), completed with a massive poll to all local companies in the metal industry. It shows how much these small firms are interested in logistics and how they are beginning to change their culture thru projects in the field of logistics.
After evaluating the answers to the test, ways to improve the development in logistics of companies are presented. The final conclusion is that those firms, especially the biggest ones, need more information, public discussion and then, they can continue with simple projects, at low cost, but with important results in clients' satisfaction. The best areas to improve are purchasing and storaging, as well as the circuits of informations.
