How to Develop Infrastructure to Support Mission-Critical Logistics

No tags available

here are critical logistics requirements and then there are mission-critical demands. The difference is end-user impact: a lost customer because of a late shipment, or a lost product line—and countless lost customers—because a critical part can't be replaced in time.

When companies move high-value shipments critical to business process continuity, time is money and service is golden. Whether it's a machine replacement for an automotive assembly line or a network router for a brokerage house, the immediacy and unexpectedness of demand warrants a reliable strategy for placing "just-in-case" parts inventory in various locations around the world, then seamless execution in delivering shipments to support end-user replenishment needs.

It makes no difference whether it's business-to-business or business-to-customer, working within a one-hour delivery window or next-day defined service, replenishing a critical component or routine after-midnight maintenance. Mission critical logistics is a 24/7/365 commitment.

Having resources, infrastructure, and inventory in place are key factors to mission-critical success.
