Challenge

An end-of-life packaging system manufacturer had been using customized rail and runner blocks in various sizes and often didn't know the final size they needed until the product was staged on the floor. Due to the strong economy, the lead times on rails and runner blocks had been extending out to 10-12 weeks. These conditions were putting the delivery date for their systems at risk.

Process

To resolve this timing issue, MTA worked with the client to establish a supply chain and agreement that put inventory at MTA's facility for the client's use. This allowed them to reduce lead times on standard rails to less than two days. A customized rail cutting station was also added to MTA's facility to help reduce lead times on customized rail lengths.

Results

As a result of these innovations, rail deliveries are no longer affecting delivery dates to end customers. They are now able to more efficiently grow their businesses with key accounts.
