Internally, the Procurement & Logistics department works together with Engineering, Project Management, and Operations. We can stock and store products in anticipation of project lead times, reducing your overhead costs and on-site storage requirements. Regardless of the industry however, the driving factor behind all procurement logistics initiatives is a desire to reduce costs and minimize project disruptions. The failure of materials to arrive on schedule can easily result in a complete work stoppage. The minor savings in storage costs are more than lost in the cost of additional wages and overhead during a period with no production. There is a level of risk with all decisions, and our Procurement & Logistics Team are experts at minimizing the known risks.
