Just-in-time delivery increases efficiency for Fortune 500 firm
A global Fortune 500 contract manufacturer wanted to speed up replenishment of its factories. Agility developed a sophisticated just-in-time delivery system and a Global Component Service Center in Hong Kong to meet that need. Efficient customs clearance ensured that components could be sent to factories on the same day orders were received. WMS enhancement captured more than 10 types of information for each item, allowing accuracy for processing by FEFO (First Expiry First Out), which the client required. The 10,000 sq foot, temperature-controlled service center handled more than 40,000 LPN, including In and Out, per month; more than 500 delivery notes, and around 2,300 active SKUs. These comprise 202 suppliers and 103 consignees in 19 countries.
