If your business’s continuation – and therefore success – depends on mission-critical parts, you know that every second you’re down is like throwing away money. Planes are grounded. Production ceases. And everything just seems to grind to a halt.
However, if you have a contingency plan in place to get operations back up as quickly as possible, you can minimize downtime, save money, and continue to serve your customers business-as-usual.
You can accomplish this by having a critical parts delivery or flexible on-demand warehouse plan in place.
What Is Critical Parts Delivery?
Between 60 and 70 percent of service calls require spare parts. Even the practice of securing a “service contact” complicates spare parts logistics. Service contracts usually stipulate certain levels of service demanding a repair be made in 24 hours, four hours, or even sooner.
That’s fine if you can wait that long. But most businesses would rather be up and running far sooner. That means a scramble to get the right parts on location as quickly as possible.
By partnering with Lightning Express, you can ensure immediate delivery of spare parts in one of two ways:
1. You can store spare parts in our 24-hour secure, climate-controlled warehouse in Baltimore for immediate dispatch to your breakdown location 24/7. Or,
2. You can use our 24/7 on-demand shipping services to pick up spare parts from one location and deliver them to your breakdown location.
What Is Flexible On-Demand Warehousing?
