When it comes to our customers, we are committed to providing the highest quality products and services possible. Over the years, our customers have come to depend on us to be their go-to supplier, and we strive to meet that expectation on a daily basis. One way we do so is through our just-in-time (JIT) delivery services.
Just-in-time delivery, as defined by Toyota Global, is “making only what is needed, when it is needed, and in the amount needed” which “can eliminate waste, inconsistencies, and unreasonable requirements, resulting in improved productivity.” In other words, a JIT delivery system is a means of lean manufacturing where a manufacturer receives parts or materials on an as needed basis, as opposed to purchasing a vast inventory.
Here at Caylor, we employ JIT delivery services for our customers. As a wholesale distributor, we buy products from our manufacturers, and then store and ship to our customers on a daily basis, so that they are only receiving the needed amount of parts on that day. This way, our customers get their orders whenever they are needed. It is beneficial to us because by stocking a large inventory, we are able to purchase products at a discounted rate. In turn, we are able to pass those savings along to our customers. Additionally, we can ensure that we will have products in stock to allow for a shorter lead time and quick turnaround.
It is important to us to be the go-to supplier for our customers. With the help of our JIT delivery system, we are able to supply the right amount of needed products at the time they are needed.
