Thanks to Kukla’s critical port facilities and partner services, we ensure the smooth transition of your cargo into warehouses storage or onward shipping.

In today’s fast-paced market, minimising inventory costs and enhancing production efficiency are more critical than ever for our clients. Two strategies that are pivotal in achieving these objectives are Just-In-Time (JIT) and Just-In-Sequence (JIS) shipping. For both methods, Kukla’s teams of experts ensure the synchronisation of your supply chain to ensure that components and materials arrive exactly when and where they are needed, but they each have unique characteristics and benefits.

Just-In-Time shipping is a strategy that aims to reduce inventory costs by having supplies delivered precisely at the moment they are required. This approach not only cuts down on storage needs but also minimises waste due to overproduction and excess inventory. Kukla’s JIT solutions provide a robust coordination between suppliers, transporters, and your production or distribution with the following benefits:

Reduced Inventory Costs: By receiving goods only as they are needed, companies can significantly lower the cost associated with holding and managing inventory.

Increased Efficiency: JIT promotes a leaner, more streamlined operation by reducing the clutter and inefficiencies of overstocking.

Enhanced Quality Control: With smaller batch sizes and frequent deliveries, any quality issues are identified and addressed more quickly.

Just-In-Sequence takes JIT a step further by delivering also in the precise order they are to be used. This method is particularly important for our manufacturing clients, where components must be assembled in a specific sequence. JIS reduces the need for sorting and reordering upon delivery, which can significantly optimise your production process thanks to:.

Reduced Handling Time: Components arrive ready to use in the order required, which minimises handling time and speeds up the production process.

Decreased Risk of Error: Delivering parts in sequence directly to the assembly line reduces the potential for errors in the manufacturing process.

Optimised Production Flow: JIS supports a smoother, more continuous production flow, enhancing overall operational efficiency.
