With delays of up to several weeks or even months for large imports, it is difficult for the supplier to imagine ordering "at the last minute" without degrading the service rate of the platform.
However, this is the standard mode of operation for the iaxxTM Resupply Platform solution, which is at the heart of the supply chain systems of many leading players in their market.
Its on-board analyses allow to characterize the quality of service of the manufacturer (with respect to deadlines and quantities) to develop the best security coverage tactics, and then simulate the best order speed, according to the real needs of the shops (“just in time”).
For example, it is possible to order a full multi-reference container every two weeks from the same Asian supplier for delivery in 3 months. Boats follow each other at a steady rate, as close as possible, as required. Your supply chain remains flexible and commercially responsive despite this incompressible shipping time.
