What is JIT?
Just-In-Time (JIT) manufacturing, also known as just-in-time production, is a methodology aimed primarily at reducing flow times within the production system as well as response times from suppliers and to customers.
There are many other terms for JIT manufacturing; short-cycle manufacturing (SCM), continuous flow manufacturing (CFM), demand flow manufacturing (DFM), and even they have evolved. Now, Lean Manufacturing or Quick Response have become the more prevalent, common terms.
Regardless of your preferred terminology, Crating Technologies provides both custom and standard products to our customers on a predetermined schedule that allows for seamless transitions between manufacturing and shipping. We produce, store and deliver according to the customer’s schedules.
JIT delivery is a customized service and an art in itself. For our clients who require production crates or pallets at regular intervals, we provide just-in-time manufacturing and delivery. We build your crates in advance, store them, and deliver them following an agreed upon schedule. We’re ready when you’re ready and your manufacturing to shipping schedule runs smoothly.
This option locks your production time and gives priority to your production. It provides a schedule for you and for us. When we all plan together, we all succeed together.
We store them! You will always have the crates you require when you need them, without using some of your valuable warehouse space to stock them. We keep a supply on hand so we are ready to deliver when you are ready for shipment.
Like clockwork. Your production cannot be disrupted. You have orders to fill, commitments to your customers. Our part is to make your job easier. We deliver according to the pre-determined schedule. If you need to make adjustments to the schedule, just contact Crating Technologies and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
