Messageries Lyonnaises de Presse (MLP) has three logistics platforms in France and distributes 25 to 30% of the specialised press magazines. At the Saint-Quentin-Fallavier platform, there is a lot of manual handling, but the management takes into account the actual work done by the employees to relieve them.

For example, in front of each operator, small screens indicate the number of references to be placed in the boxes. This workstation is "tested" every day to facilitate the work of the employees

Les Messageries lyonnaises de presse (MLP) disposent en France de trois plates-formes logistiques et distribuent de 25 à 30 % des revues de la presse spécialisée. Sur celle de Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, les manutentions manuelles sont nombreuses, mais la direction tient compte du travail réel des salariés pour les soulager.

A titre d'exemple, devant chaque opératrice, de petits écrans indiquent le nombre de références à mettre dans les cartons. Ce poste est « testé » chaque jour pour faciliter le travail des salariées
