Efficiency improvements for Doesburg Components with help of EDI
By shipping products directly from their partners to the end customer both Doesburg Components and their customers save money on transport costs. At the same time the lead times are shorter, the storage and handling costs are lower and labour costs can be saved. Without losing the overview in all parts of the supply chain.
Doesburg Components, located in Nieuw Bergen Limburg, is supplier of high-quality cast-iron components to customers in the truck-, engine and agricultural sector. Their goal is to deliver products that can be assembled directly at the customer at the assembly line. For this reason the company offers various added value activities in addition to their core process: CNC machining. This concerns, for example, pre-assembly, painting and cleaning of parts. In addition they are the development partner for their customers. Thanks to “early supplier involvement”, Doesburg Components is involved at an early stage with the development of new products, which offers many efficiency benefits for both parties. Numerous processes are closely related to eachother, to enable efficient production and “just-in-time” delivery.
