    Logistics challenge enables client to build the world's heaviest and tallest wind and power infrastructure

    case study spot windCustomer Challenge:

    Our client, a global manufacturer of specialized wind energy installations, took part in a competition to supply some of the highest energy-generating wind power turbines in the world. This contest involved establishing the world’s largest land based windmill at the Hunterston test site in West Scotland, one of the windiest places in Europe. However, the port at Hunterston did not have port facilities to receive windmill parts of this size, so a custom quay had to be built. The customer engaged OIA to help navigate the multiple challenges related to the planning and execution of what essentially was a world first: the transportation of the largest windmill blade parts ever made.

    Customer Benefit:

    The very long time line of this project required our customer to select a logistics partner that could participate in the project from the first minute of planning until completion several years later. This required a great deal of dedication as well as attention to detail and knowledge of the customer’s internal organization. OIA’s Energy Team provided the consistency and continuity needed for a project this size and duration. Our true partnership with the customer enabled the company to concentrate on the other technical challenges of this enormous endeavor.

    Combining materials management with an optimized logistics solution

    case study spot swatchesCustomer Challenge:

    Our client, one of the largest producers of outdoor and athletic wear faced challenges when four of its Vietnam-based OEM’s consistently ran short on a key production material, resulting in production and product delays. Material lead-time for the item was six weeks, so by the time an OEM thought to order from the raw material supplier, it was often too little too late.

    Our Solution:

    • Volume price negotiations
    • Reduced raw material lead times
    • Planned & assured capacities/secured supply chain
    • Multi-user warehouse (Hanoi)
    • Materials management
    • Ocean transportation
    • Management reporting

    PDFbutton

    Customer Benefit:

    Order lead times for the OEM factories were reduced from 45 days to 10 days. The customer saw a marked increase in supply consistency, as the OEMs no longer had difficulty reordering in time to meet demand fluctuations. OIA was able to leverage the long-ranging volume demand from the four OEMs in negotiations with the raw material supplier. The brand client is now able to enjoy transparency to OEM cost for the raw material (via OIA), OIA’s ability to buy in FCL loads and single-point volume buy negotiations with the supplier has resulted in over $1 million in annualized savings.

    New packaging builds revenue and sustainability for a large healthcare manufacturer

    case study spot optiboxCustomer Challenge:

    Our healthcare customer, a manufacturer of therapeutic products, issued new parameters to its healthcare product suppliers to eliminate PVC clamshell packaging, due to the packaging’s lack of environmental compliance. The new packaging needed to be shelf-ready and not pegged in the retail environment, despite the fact that space allocated by retailers typically only displayed products in PVC clamshells on a pegboard. Also, as a result of the clamshells not being able to stand upright, excess products were being flat-stacked below the display, which severely limited space in the display area.

    Our Solution:

    • Retail Packaging
    • Air and Ocean Transportation (LCL/FCL)
    • Customs Clearance
    • Packaging Optimization

    PDFbutton

    Customer Benefit:

    Our customer’s new OIA-developed packaging was well received by retailers. One retailer increased the shelf space display by 17 inches, enabling our customer to add an additional 3 SKUs to the store set, resulting in increased revenue. Additionally, improved brand messaging and graphics helped their products to stand out among competing brands.

    Customer Challenge:

    case study spot engineGlobal management of sophisticated, costly engine repair tools used to provide quick response aircraft repairs was a major undertaking for our customer, a multinational maintenance and repair support firm for aircraft engines. Meeting intense customer demands and providing the correct equipment to ensure airline customer productivity required developing the perfect combination of standard operating procedures, technology support, and people resources.

    Our Solution:

    • 100,000 square foot distribution center
    • Inventory management system
    • Documentation verification and support
    • Carrier management
    • Pick and pack from inventory
    • Shipment staging

    PDFbutton

    Customer Benefit:

    Our client was able to quickly respond to urgent customer demands for aircraft repair worldwide. Relying on OIA’s logistics team, the company was able to reuse existing tools thanks to the complete inventory visibility provided by OIA’s WebTracker and Edocs system which, tracked shipments down to the product code level. Before implementing this program, the client was purchasing new tools rather than reusing available existing ones and so realized annual savings in excess of $3 million. Tool utilization also improved. Paperwork issues that had previously delayed shipments ceased as the OIA team ensured that packing lists, invoices, and certificates of origin were in order for quick customs clearance.

    case study spot planeCustomer Challenge:

    Our client, a Classic Motors company, required a sophisticated compliance solution for the transportation and customs/tax treatment of four rare vintage cars from Germany to the United States and China, and potentially back again.

Our client needed several customs and tax solutions in place, depending on any potential sales.

    • Secure loading and lashing at the OIA automotive warehouse in Stuttgart.
    • APs (wooden automotive platform) were used for secure and loading of all cars into (2x) 40'
    • Bookings, organizing the sea freight
    • Customs clearance and documentation
    • Dedicated Auto Team management
    • Dedicated enclosed car transporters

    PDFbutton

The team’s attention to detail ensured a trouble and stress-free experience for the owner, event organizers, and buyers alike. After a successful Pebble Beach event, two cars were sold, and the other two continued on to the Bund Classics event in Shanghai before they were finally returned to Germany in pristine condition.

    “Rest assured” when OIA Expedite handles your critical and time-definite shipments.

    Managing supply chain variability and complexity as fast and efficiently as possible often demands a premium-level, day-definite service. It requires a team of logisticians that can orchestrate a response plan, mobilize transportation resources, then execute at the drop of a dime. Enter OIA Expedite.

    OIA’s “control tower” approach utilizes a dedicated team that oversees your expedited shipments, synchronizing the right service providers to get the job done on-time. Partnering with airlines, cartage and linehaul providers, and motor freight carriers spanning North America and beyond, OIA Expedite analyzes least cost/best routings, and develops the right time-definite solution.

    Part of the challenge is understanding shipper and consignee need and deploying an appropriate mode combination with speed, security, and economy in mind – whether that means using day-definite truckload or less-than-truckload to reduce costs by optimizing market capacity or putting an urgent shipment on the next flight out.

    Project Logistics designed to meet the needs of today’s heavy-lift and out-of-gauge cargo.

    To remain competitive in today’s global economy, it’s imperative companies can supply out-of-gauge, hazardous, and project equipment worldwide. These heavy lift cargo shipments present unique international logistics challenges, and OIA is there to ensure every obstacle is successfully executed. Some of the many challenges faced on these project shipments include:

    • Securing transport clearances from country and regulatory bodies on time.
    • Obtaining lifting and securing certified equipment to ensure the safety of the personnel involved and the equipment itself.
    • Sourcing qualified and trained personal at remote locations.
    • Ensuring lifting and securing arrangements are being planned and agreed upon in advance to facilitate the works ahead of the operations.
