In a manufacturing environment, the flow of materials is the lifeline of production. In this operation with 12 production lines generating $10 million in surgical devices daily, lives literally depend on flawless order fulfillment. Yet damaged materials shipments to the off-site warehouse and long lead times were continually starving production lines, resulting in costly downtime.
With this stop-and-start workflow, a daily scenario of as many as 18 rush inbound materials shipments burdened the company with needless service disruption and expense. The operation stood to lose $34K per hour every time production stalled.
With costly hiccups threatening their bottom line, the company looked to FIDELITONE to provide a right-fit solution to align materials movement with production needs and ensure the quality of inbound materials. Innovations to operational efficiency and reliability included a kitting solution, addressing damage to packages, reducing rush material orders, and designing a custom box truck to meet the client’s unique requirements.
