Why do some of the world's most respected companies choose New Breed Logistics to engineer and manage complex logistics operations? Because day by day, detail by detail, we earn their trust.
Siemens Medical Solutions is one of the world's largest makers of medical equipment. Its U.S. business wanted to improve the efficiency and reliability of critical parts distribution. Siemens had limited visibility to orders filled from remote locations and no system to track delivery milestones. In addition, unpredictable inventory availability led Siemens field service engineers (FSEs), as a safeguard, to hold commonly used parts as "trunk inventory." After a competitive search, Siemens chose New Breed Logistics to establish and manage a national network to deliver critical service parts within 2-6 hours to more than 1,500 Siemens field service engineers.
New Breed Logistics analysts examined parts usage and developed an inventory plan that would meet all service level requirements with just 18 distribution points a relatively low number for a rapid-response network of parts depots. The network consists of a central DC and returns processing center in Memphis and several strategically located parts depots. Key elements of the solution include:
Web-based order management and visibility
Carrier selection and management for critical deliveries
