A Middle Eastern beverage bottler was having significant line-down problems. Its’ suppliers were not following shipping instructions, preparing documents properly, and shipping products in a timely manner. We took over their supply chain function and complied with mandated order requirements and processed all orders. In also acting as the customer’s shipping agent, we interacted with suppliers and required them to submit all orders through us to ensure that packaging was correct. We also alerted the end-user customers to the receipt of goods and met all customer shipment requirements. This enabled our customer to provide excellent service to their customers and increased end-user customer satisfaction.
A German Road Construction Equipment manufacturer experienced a high damage rate during the loading and unloading of shipments with its previous partner. We designed and fabricated a unique armature which allowed forklifts to move the machine quickly and easily. The new armature virtually eliminated the number of damaged units and enabled the manufacturer to deliver its units to their customers without the use of special vehicles.
An Australian dental products manufacturer needed a supply chain partner who could provide real-time pick and pack services to match its dental office customers’ requirements. In working with us, the manufacturer was able to control its marginal costs by matching our supply chain resources to its business needs. We incurred the fixed costs of labor and warehousing instead of the manufacturer during slower times in their business cycle. In outsourcing its pick and pack services to us, we successfully reduce the manufacturers’ overhead and efficiently deliver their products to their customers to their complete satisfaction.
