Container Management - Pull

Content is what matters – finding the right container to fulfill the parts demand coverage

In global supply networks, companies are faced with the challenge of shipping parts and components in mixed content containers based on a non-frozen production program. During considerable transport timeframes for containers, the production program and parts requirements often change. At the container yard, it is imperative to be able to identify which containers hold parts that are critical in the production line as well as which have certain time restrictions before incurring penalty or risking quality issues. By observing these various conditions, it is possible to keep lower stock and in turn reduce your warehousing needs, creating leaner operations.
