The JIT-strategy brings many advantages, but has its share of disadvantages as well. With Just-in-Time the whole flow of material along the supply chain must be exactly synchronized.
- no stock keeping necessary, saving space and costs
- no capital commitment
- fast reaction to changing markets is possible
- high amount of control necessary
- high default risk
- big delivery zones needed
When it comes to a default risk, our airmates can help. When, for example, a production machine is breaking down, a spare part is desperately needed to keep the Just-in-Time production going and avoid defaulting on delivery contract. An On Board Courier will deliver the spare part securely and as fast as possible to the place it is needed.
