We support the whole purchasing operations from suppliers in and out of Japan. We pick up, inspect, and store raw materials, parts, semi-processed items, and completed components, and supply them in accordance with your production schedule. Our procurement and inbound logistics service can promote purchasing optimization, and it is applicable to not only those who are in the manufacturing industry but also customers in the distribution business.
From anywhere to anywhere, we deliver "right items" in the "right amount" at the "right timing." We can also construct an operation system which enhances information visibility of your supply chain and provides you with peace of mind.
The HTS Group's inbound logistics originates in our supporting role for the procurement of raw materials for Hitachi, Ltd. In order to be ready to support your globalization of production or procurement territories, we are always supplementing our service offerings, with the integration of import and export functions being one example.
Based on our analysis as well as experience, we come up with optimal proposals for international procurement SCM from customer's viewpoint. We fully utilize our worldwide transportation network and design highly efficient procurement logistics, such as buyers consolidation.
By using our own developed WMS and peripheral devices, we achieve both productivity and accuracy in our work. We accurately control the inventory of low-volume, high-mix parts, or semi-processed components, leading to just-in-time supply in accordance with the production schedule.
We conduct shared storage of parts and semi-processed goods from multiple vendors and put the full set of components into the production line, which leads to improvement of work efficiency on the factory side. It enables logistics cost saving as well.
We can also help reduce goods in progress at the factory by arranging split deliveries.
We analyze the current state of purchase procurement routes, costs, schemes, etc. and support you to achieve total optimization.
Please feel secure in leaving your global procurement with us. In addition to our experiences in overseas warehouse management, buyers consolidation*, and VMI warehouse management, etc., we utilize advanced IT systems to deliver even low-volume, high-mix orders with high frequency, accurately and just in time (JIT) to your production line.
For customers in the distribution business, procurement logistics corresponds to your purchasing, a pivotal function of your business strategy. We help you improve your management efficiency by supporting your procurement of the right quantity at the right timing, in sync with market situations.
*Buyers consolidation: A method of procurement efficiency optimization where the transport of various goods from multiple suppliers is consolidated as a single cargo, rather than handled separately with each vendor. It is also effective for cost reduction.
