This resulted in late and unscheduled deliveries. Solution Through the utilisation of the return legs of the outbound delivery service CEVA Logistics created a series of milk runs to conduct pick ups from suppliers and delivered either direct to the central Holden warehouse or via the CEVA consolidation centre for overnight delivery. Results A dramatic reduction in supplier lead time that resulted in better visibility of inbound deliveries (15 minute timeslots) & an improvement in order availability with clear knowledge of stock availability & lead time extensions
