Reliable production supply
The just-in-time delivery of individual parts to the place of installation is an essential success factor for an efficient and competitive production. For this, one needs reliable and experienced partners. Partners like Schnellecke. Numerous global brands, among them many automobile manufacturers, have relied on our services for years.
Reliable material supply of vendor parts and modules
Schnellecke logistics centers ensure material supply, process reliability and the global coordination of all logistics and transport processes. The reliable supply of the production with the right parts at the right time and the right place is only ensured by the interplay of all components and process steps.
Schnellecke plans and designs complete warehouses, provides the personnel and the necessary technological infrastructure, optimizes the storage of inventories, and continuously reduces the through-put times. All warehouses are equipped with ultra-modern technology and IT.
As well as conventional methods, Schnellecke also implements its own methods in order to ensure the correct sequence of material call-offs. Depending on their size, components are picked into customer-specific containers that are delivered up to the production line. Complete kitting bins with up to 200 different parts are also sequenced and delivered to their point of installation.
The production-sequenced deliveries are planned down to the smallest detail and electronically controlled in order to ensure ongoing production at all times. Error-free, pinpoint logistics and our in-house software designed for this purpose, the Schnellecke JIT System (SJS), ensure the reliability of the JIT/JIS transports.
Ensuring only the really necessary stock on the production line is one of the central requirements in Supply Chain Management. With its inbound logistics, Schnellecke also ensures precise line feeding.
Each supply of a production line requires a well-planned container/empties management. Our in-house software designed for this purpose makes it possible to precisely determine the number and location of all containers. If necessary, the containers are processed before they are put back into circulation.
Material Flow Management
With target-oriented material flow control, all necessary resources such as storage areas, load carriers, personnel, forklifts, conveyor technology, and IT are optimally combined. Schnellecke plans and ensures the material flow, from simple incoming and outgoing goods, to the complete supply of production. For this we rely on, among other things, automated small parts warehouses with up to 100,000 storage places, forklifts suitable for the tightest of spaces, and picking zones equipped with ultra-modern technology such as Google Glass.
The packaging of automotive parts for the transport to production plants overseas, including the complete shipping organization, is one of Schnellecke’s core competences.Find out more
