Solving the issues
Taking Trelleborg’s ideas on board enabled Sandvik’s seal suppliers to be cut to three from nearly ten; a large reduction in dealing with different companies and simplifying business significantly. Logistics experts identified the ideal location for stocking as Trelleborg’s central Fort Wayne facility, reducing supply chain costs. This met the main objectives, but Trelleborg Sealing Solutions didn’t stop there. “Having helped others with this kind of challenging project enabled us to understand Sandvik’s processes better and to propose other related services that would further ease their business and add value at every step,” says Susan. Specifically, Trelleborg’s dedicated ServicePLUS experts provided kitting, individually bagged parts and customerbranded packaging to ensure that the correct products were well protected and would require fewer operations by Sandvik.
