Material Management


Material management is a core supply chain function that we offer for customers where we manage the complete supply chain process. Aerospheres can offer to manage the stock replenishment of all chemical products as part of a consignment or just in time solution.

This allows us to plan and execute supply chain capabilities and communicate information regarding material needs throughout the extended supply chain, as well as offer material replenishment plans and determining inventory levels to hold for raw materials, WIP and finished goods.

Consignments

We have taken consignment stock and made this even more effective for our customers. We assure you have sufficient stock onsite to meet 2-3 months usage and have weekly/monthly replenishment schedules. We also make certain there is additional buffer at our local facilities, as we know customers have limited space, and managing Dangerous Goods (DG)/Hazardous material and temperature-controlled products can be difficult and costly.

There are also no minimum order values of quantities, and you will be invoiced on consumption. This is beneficial as it reduces the AOG/work stoppage related costs, and you always have stock on hand.

Just In Time

Stock is provided to you "Just in Time," this means we'll work with you to determine the parts and quantities you have left, once you reach the minimal limit new stock will be sent out the following day using stock held at our facility. This reduces freight costs and eliminates the need to track down several suppliers. It also aids in the reduction of Goods-in for logistics and the usage of warehouse space.
