Flexibility Through Outsourcing
When we think of flexibility we often only think of flexibility of finished goods. However, there are a lot of factors in which the right partner can offer flexibility. From Engineering support to collaboration on inbound logistics through the buffering of component stocks either with your partner or buffered at the supplier through a negotiated agreement. Planning and optimised scheduling of your supply chain will often dictate how flexible you can be with your customers, so getting it right is paramount.
The long-term partnerships with customers we build at NOTE, understanding of projects and priorities, take into account every element of technical and commercial needs. Key to achieving this is our customer-focused approach, close collaboration and taking a holistic view of the business and market, enables us to ensure our customers’ inventory and lead-times are kept to an optimal minimum.
