ship spares and a.o.g services overview
Horizon has provided Freight Forwarding Services and Logistics solutions to Ship Spares and AOG supply chain customers for many years. We support every requirement from the manufacturing process through to delivery to the end customer.
During the past 20 years we have gained an excellent understanding of the supply chain challenges facing the Ship Spares & AOG industry. Cost reduction, lead-time optimisation, and expedited global services are all essential within these sectors, and frequently users may also require our supply chain management solutions for Express Freight and Time Critical Movements. Working with our customers directly, and in many cases their customers as well, we will always aim to ensure that items are delivered to meet the most critical time deadlines.
Speed of response, attention to detail and transport optimisation are essential to meeting these demanding schedules. Expedited domestic services to make inventory ready, facilitate collections from manufacturers and ensure that quality information is always provided have been the keys our success within these sectors and the foundation of the close relationships we have established with our Ship Spares & AOG customers.
Quality in motion
The client supplies corporate branded merchandise to motor racing teams, competing in a global championship. Merchandise is required by pop-up concession stores at each race circuit and must be delivered in advance of the race weekend, lasting just 4 days. Timeframes are tight and must be met.
The challenge was to provide inventory management of 500 product lines across multiple storage locations, receiving of client orders (24/7/365) and dispatching directly to theatres within agreed timescales.
Each event and tour is completely different and so the supply chain requirement is bespoke every time. Many sites have limited equipment and loading / unloading restrictions and operating times.
Our client approached us with a project to supply corporate merchandise packs to over 100 recipients, all private individuals, across the globe on behalf of a tech giant. The challenge was to manage all local customs & tax requirements as well as deliveries to customer door whilst avoiding involvement from the end-customer.
Books are required to support specific museum exhibitions and therefore timing is critical. Orders are placed to ensure that completion dates coincide. Orders are delivered to two US and one UK location.
