Companies in the industrial manufacturing sector cover a broad range of businesses. What they have in common is a highly competitive environment, constantly shifting influences, and production that is usually international in scope and often seasonal. Cost looms large, so cost reduction – while improving productivity – is critical.
No logistics provider understands these concerns better than Neovia. We come from industrial roots with our Caterpillar heritage and have lived what you live every day as an industrial company. We apply a high level of accountability and depth of understanding that comes only from having developed and executed effective logistics solutions for ourselves and numerous industrial customers.
First, we work to understand your business, the scope of its logistics needs and cost structure. Our value proposition assessment produces a new and highly identifiable cost structure that clearly tracks cost reductions. That part is straight forward to create but difficult to implement. We answer the challenge by creating a scope of solutions, ranging from comprehensive inventory management and MRO to warehousing, inbound logistics and transportation. We capture value in key areas including reductions in logistics costs, inventory and fixed assets while targeting ways to boost order fill rate and order accuracy – all while providing you with unprecedented customer service.
