Expediting for on-schedule delivery
Late delivery of equipment & materials frequently results in additional costs to the organisation. Typically these arise through failure to meet production plans, the impact on implementation of capital projects and the consequences of not having vital items in stock. There can also be potential impacts on the company’s health, safety and environmental performance.
Take positive steps across your organisation to achieve on-time arrival of items needed to support the company’s operations.
Late arrival of requirements is not just through choosing ‘poor’ suppliers! There are numerous reasons why the company’s whole organisation should align its working practices to reduce the likelihood of late deliveries
