Agile response to customer storage needs

The Unipart Logistics team in Cowley responded quickly and effectively to a customer storage request.

A premium automotive manufacturer asked the team to source an alternative storage media for a particularly large carbon fibre component, so more storage units could be release back into the supply chain.

Using the tools and techniques of The Unipart Way, the team designed a new type of stillage and improved the process by reusing manual handling equipment going out of use in another part of the site.

Insurers successfully inspected the solution, which now means the process has been reduced from a four- to a one-person task, meeting the customer request and improving efficiency.
