Challenges for Transportation Manufacturers
Manufacturers in the transportation industry are challenged by a demanding and competitive supply chain. They must deliver on complex customer requirements and simultaneously maintain focus on reducing inventory, eliminating scrap, coping with unstable commodity costs, and dealing with an unpredictable workforce.
Our customers in the transportation industry make components by performing numerous value-added manufacturing operations such as forming metals, extruding, and molding plastics and performing simple hand or extraordinarily complex weld assemblies. The transportation industry set the bar for quality compliance and inventory control with such standards as IATF 16949, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001.
