Logistics Material Handling
 

Getting raw materials to your facility and finished products to your customers in ever shorter time cycles is a competitive necessity. Your competitors are making great strides in supply chain management and reaping the benefits from the improvements that they've implemented. Just like you, your customers are making purchasing decisions, based on the efficiencies of their suppliers. Your ability to consistently provide low-cost, high quality products and deliver them on time will keep you competitive and first in your customer's mind at procurement time.

When evaluating where to locate a facility or which facilities to consolidate, there are many factors to consider. Issues related to work-force availability and transportation aren’t the only factors having an impact on your decision. Softer issues abound and can be every bit as important in your decision. Kelmatix has worked side by side with many clients, who were making these hard decisions, and successfully brought about magnificent advantages.

We can help to implement improvements to your supply chain and create a logistics strategy that will, in turn, make you the supplier of choice for your customers. Here’s how we can help you:

Site Logistics
How you move raw materials, work in process, finished goods and by-products throughout your facility is extremely critical. No value is ever added to your goods by being moved from location to location. Our associates have many years of experience in designing successful site logistics; we can make sure that you do not spend more than what is absolutely required to support your material handling needs.

Site Selection
There are many issues that need to be considered, when selecting a new site for your facility. Issues, involving the availability of land, cost competitive labor, utility services, and investment and tax incentives, all play important roles in your decision. Our experienced professionals guide you through these complexities with ease.

Expansion / Consolidation
When considering a change to the size of your facility, we can help you
determine if this change is actually warranted. Effective planning
and improvements in other areas may render an expansion unnecessary,
just as properly planned consolidations will ensure that long-term, as well as short-term, goals are kept in focus. With our broad experience base, we look at all of the pertinent issues and keep your strategic goals at the center of the decision process.

Supply Chain Improvements
Source, Make and Deliver: three basic words that encompass the heart of your supply chain. Each of these important processes must be considered, when designing improvements. Now, consider that your company’s supply chain encompasses, not only your suppliers and their suppliers, but also, your customers and their customers! We skillfully use several key tools to help you realize significant improvements. Tools, such as, material flow and best practice analysis, define where you are and where you must be, in order to improve. Information mapping and transactional analysis provide the basis for continuous improvement. The correct technology selection and design will then provide the tools to track and maintain your improvements. Our associates stand ready to assist you with your supply chain improvements today!

Transportation Strategies
The decisions you make regarding transportation are very important in
meeting your needs and your customer’s needs, while providing quality customer service. The costs, that you incur as a result, provide no added value; therefore, these costs need to be justifiable and reasonable. We will help you choose from the many transportation options that are available, to develop the transportation strategy that is right for you.
