Inbound to Manufacturing and VMI
Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) is one of the most important tools a manufacturer can use to increase bottom line results and improve customer deliveries. If you are a manufacturer who doesn't want to carry the inventory on your books, then VMI is the solution for you.
DHL designs VMI solutions which allow you to postpone the delivery and ownership of components until the last possible moment. The key to VMI is strategically placing an inbound hub close to your manufacturing facility, so the materials are delivered to your assembly line just-in-time for production. This coordinated effort is only possible if every party in the supply chain knows what parts are inbound to the hub, how much material is in the inventory and what’s been placed into production.
