Ensure Quality of Your Automotive Parts
When auto parts are shipped from the supplier, the parts are not the way the car manufacturer needs them to be in order to send them to the assembly line.
The auto parts are either not in order or are in various boxes. It’s also easy for the vehicle parts to become damaged or misplaced in transit. That’s why breaking down the pallets of auto parts (“break bulk”), sorting auto parts, and inspecting them for quality issues, is a crucial step in the automotive supply chain.
BR Williams has helped countless OEMs and Tier 1, 2, and 3 supplies ensure the quality of their auto parts – and they can help you too. We can provide a customized solution that will help you:
- Save time, space, and labor costs
- Streamline the process from supplier to manufacturer
- Ensure higher quality of auto parts
(Breaking Down Mixed Pallets of Auto Parts)
Shipping auto parts can quickly become costly, but breaking down your mixed pallets of car parts can be a significant cost saver.
With break bulk services, BR Williams will ship your automotive parts to a warehouse in FTL and then break down the product into smaller units to be shipped directly to their customers.
The benefits of doing so include:
- Saving on freight costs
- Getting the material closer to the end customer
- Combining multiple products into one shipment – usually, the outbound to the customer is shipped LTL
- Cutting down on waste
Automotive Parts Sorting
When your automotive products are received in mixed pallets from multiple suppliers, it can be time-consuming and costly to sort through all the parts.
Often times, suppliers and manufacturers don’t have space available for sorting that is close to the assembly line.
Outsourcing your sorting needs under one roof allows for a:
- Consolidated sorting process
- Removal of waste
- Assurance of a higher sort quality
- Tracking of auto parts, as well as the empty racks
Inspections & Quality Assurance
We understand you want to ensure the quality of all your products. That’s why we offer to do a basic visual check of your products as we sort the parts.
The parts come to the receiving department in bulk packaging, and when we remove them, we do a visual inspection for:
- Obvious defects
- Missing parts
Once the inspection is complete and everything conforms, we put the automotive part into the shipping container or rack, and it’s delivered directly to the assembly line.Request Free Quote »
