Case Study: Helping a washer manufacturer make a clean start.
For one SeaLand customer, providing a reliable source of containers was the missing link that fixed their supply chain.
Finding the solution for this one particular customer was all a matter of communication. We started by listening intently to their issues. It seems their requirement of only using 40’ containers—in a region where 20’ers was the norm—as well as the remoteness of their plant, was making it hard to get the containers they needed.
As a result, they were using a lot of different carriers. This was causing confusion and not satisfying their needs. It was causing the company to miss sailings, which was slowing everything down and angering their customers and just causing them to devote too much attention to their supply chain.
After listening you them, we designed a special operation to comply with their needs. Central to the plan was a commitment to deliver a predetermined number of containers we would load per week. Knowing in advance, enabled us to keep the flow of containers coming to the region. The plan also established one point of contract at SeaLand that our customer and their customers could call to resolve any issues that came up.
Last year we loaded 90% of their cargo. Our customer is happy because they are confident in our operation, know we’ll commit to any additional container needs that come up and know who to contact for any future problems.
