LOGISTICS STARTS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE ORDER
LOGICAL FOR US – TO TAKE A HOLISTIC VIEW ON LOGISTICS!
Our logistics activities do not start when the finished products will be shipped. SPT starts much earlier here. Already at the beginning of the order, to be exact. We interpret logistics as a holistic process for maximum customer satisfaction. Since we always see individual customer requirements as the linchpin of the entire process, we flexibly align our entire supply chain for each customer.
How this is done in practice is illustrated by the following example. The delivery schedule is received electronically via EDI and immediately processed in the ERP system for production planning, which also includes the planning of safety stock and optimal warehousing. Fixed packaging regulations including container management enable efficient internal transport. In shipping, we use standardized goods tags on the load units. After the goods have finally been picked up by a logistics service provider, our customer is informed via remote data transmission (EDI) with an advanced shipping notice (ASN) about the goods in transit.
Why all this meticulousness in logistics? Because this way we deliver the right product to the right place at the right time in the right quantity, the right quality, and at the right cost, perfectly compliant with the 6R-rule. Last but not least, 100% punctuality pays also in 100% customer satisfaction.
