Video Blog: 8 Steps To A Successful Supply Chain Project
We follow 8 simple steps when executing a Supply Chain project for our customers, and we start by reverse-engineering the process from end-user delivery to your timelines' demands. Here's how we keep our customer's on track, all the time:
STEP ONE: UNDERSTAND YOUR TIMELINE
We want to fully understand your unique project requirements so we can meet each deadline, and fully prepare our team for a hassle-free project execution.
Step Two: Understand Your Final Product
We want to understand exactly what goes into your final product, whether its multiple products in one package, or a retail display that holds a promotional or seasonal item. We make sure that we hold your suppliers accountable to get us your products in the timely manner that we have all agreed upon.
Step Three: Develop A Timeline That Matches Yours
We create a timeline that aligns with yours, start to finish, including the date that your product can be shopped from by end-users.
Step Four: Production Schedule
We create a full production schedule to make sure than on our last day of production, the products get on the trucks and off to the stores when you need it to.
Step Five: Delivery Schedule
We set up delivery appointments with the common carriers as well as the end-user, to make sure that transportation doesn't impact your in-store dates.
Step Six: Coordinate Receiving
We coordinate all receiving. We coordinate with your receiver to make sure they are anticipating loads to come in on time.
Step Seven: Quality Control
We get our quality team involved early and often. We want to understand what is important to you, because what is important to you is important to your customer. We want to reflect what you want in the market.
Step Eight: Execution
Simply stated, we execute the plan and get your products on shelves or in-stores when you want it, how you want it.
