Supply chain management
Crusader Packaging can provide a stock holding and call off service, managing the supply of packaging to you as you need it. This has proven to be a valuable service for many of our customers.
Agreed stock levels and reordering trigger points are input into our system; once stock falls below the trigger point the system provides us notification for a new batch of packaging to be produced.
Advantages for the customer
- Minimises the risk of running out of stock
- Reduced lead times
- Less purchase orders need to be raised saving time and money
- Reduces the unit cost, as a larger quantity can be ordered
- Delays price increases as stock is held for a longer period
- Creates more warehouse space as only minimal stock needs to be held, and reduces fire risk
- Helps ease cash flow, as you are only invoiced for the goods that are manufactured
