Machine and machine part logistics solutions

The challenges of machine and machine part supply logistics are the difference in the geographical, dimensional and time scheduling of the goods to transport, which can be very significant.

The key to a good logistics solution is to be able to harmonize the requirements continually, in other words, to be able to look for and find synergies in the work processes. In the case of complete machines, the general logistics job is to get them to the user economically from the manufacturing plant or distribution center using international shipping and with acceptable transit time.  In the case of machine parts, however, most of the tasks are to ship small cargo with immediate priority; so-called micro-transport tasks. The requirement of short transit times and the fact that the process involves international shipping often generate significant customs administration responsibilities in transportation, warehousing and customs management.  In case of goods returned, inverse logistics must often overcome lack of goods customs administration, identification or packaging. Inventory management must follow all these in all requirement areas.
