In logistics, just-in-time delivery is the term used to describe deliveries that arrive at the customer’s premises exactly when the demand for it arises. The procedure is used, among other things, in the mass and serial production of products. The best-known examples are the automotive industry and mechanical engineering. Some component manufacturers have also built their production facilities on the premises of the cooperating company. Very often, however, the components are delivered by a forwarding company. STEX, the express freight forwarder, now carries out just-in-time deliveries for numerous customers.
With just-in-time delivery, the material flow is aligned to the production process, making it possible to reduce storage costs and throughput times during production. At the same time, the supplier also adapts their production process. STEX haulage will gladly take over the job of transporting goods from the supplier to the cooperation partner.
In order for just-in-time delivery to run smoothly, a good transport infrastructure, an excellent flow of information, the conclusion of framework agreements, the best possible organisation and great flexibility on the part of the supplier are essential. As a reliable partner, STEX makes its contribution to all this. You are very welcome to entrust us with the just-in-time delivery of your goods to your customer. If need be, you can also benefit from the short-term provision of lorries and curtainsiders within 60 to 120 minutes. Naturally, we also deliver components across Europe.
