Consignment stock at HSM®
Best material availability combined with low stock levels
Establishing a consignment stock at or near your production plant secures you supply security due to short distances and super-fast access to your material. You benefit in several ways:
- Reduce your capital commitment :
You won’t pay your material until called off so you reduce your current assets and use the consignment stock as a way of financial funding.
- Reduce your administrations effort :
Due to fix delivery intervals (weekly, monthly, …) and therefore a simplified invoicing process.
- Reduce storage administrations:
Depending on the kind of consignment stock your expenses on time and personnel can be reduced significantly
- Reduce your costs for disposition:
Your material is available any time thanks to provision in consignment stock
- Reduce risks and expenses on quality management:
Simplify your incoming inspection as material is already quality tested and always available in your consignment stock
Especially for variable demands using a consignment stock is a great advantage as you always have an agreed quantity of indispensable material.
HSM® is already keeping consignment stocks for many customers – you can also benefit of this opportunity. We find the best solution for you discussing all possibilities.
