A major OEM engine manufacturer had a large defense customer that was changing out models in a specialty military vehicle. The engine OEM needed 2,000 engines packaged during the week of a shutdown.
Export Corporation jumped in head first and set up a satellite facility to pack 2,000 engines in 4 days. This included scheduling and routing 13 truckloads a day, receiving engines on racks from the OEM facility, and shipping out the packaged product from our satellite facility. We designed the engine package with a convertible base to facilitate multiple engine contenting stages.
The OEM engine manufacturer was able to get their engines to the customer in half the time time allowed during the shutdown. Serious problem solved.
