Logistics Insight Corporation (LINC) received an RFQ from a
major OEM on July 13, 2004 for a facility to process small lot
CMA material, sequence parts, and transload railcars to trailers
for JIT delivery. The catch was that the candidate that was
awarded the business had to be operational on August 16, 2004.
The size and scope of the RFQ made this a daunting task. LINC
was one of the few RFQ respondents that did not blink an eye at
this aggressive timeline, and was awarded the business on July
26.The OEM that awarded the business had an existing 3rd party
provider in a facility within .5 mile of its two assembly
plants, with the opportunity for LINC to co-locate in the
facility. However, existing offices were already in use and were
unavailable. Working out of a temporary office in a mobile
trailer, LINC was able to successfully launch this business on
the 16th of August per the original bid specifications. LINC hit
the ground on July 27 and was operational on August 4. Today,
LINC has taken over 465,000 sq. ft. of the facility and is
currently performing the following operations to support the two
- 35,000+ spd picks per day
- 5,000+ cma picks per day
- 300 return container picks per day
LINC unloads 3 railcars per day, over 75 returnable container
loads, and over 100 inbound material loads.
LINC ships out over 175 loads to the plants per day and over 150
returns loads per day (return container).
This facility achieved 15.3 PPM for the 1st quarter of 2005.
This constitutes world class performance.
