The added value of expediting.
Since last decade material expediting has become more and more important.
Vendors are forced to deliver at lower costs, better quality and shorter delivery dates. In order to save some money, the service standards of the vendors are under high pressure.
As a result, respecting contractual agreements, in particualar delivery dates, becomes more and more challenging. To make sure that delivery requirements are met, it is evident that proactive expediting is a must. PMC offers high quality expediting, starting immediately upon order placement. If necessary regular shop visits are arranged in order to visual check the progress on the shop floor. Suppliers tend to report a very optimistic view of achieved progress. By checking the actual progress against reported progress, on the shop floor, potential problems can be identified at an early stage. This will allow the expeditor to prepare corrective action plans, in collaboration with the client and the supplier.
