Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be sharing our TIC stories with you as we showcase our nine teams that will be going through to the Regional Convention. All the circles have worked really hard on developing their ideas and they could make your life easier! Let’s meet this weeks circle:
The Pressing Matters TIC team wanted to reduce the amount of times they shipped pressed parts between Halewood Stamping and their customers in the Midlands. At the time they were shipping pressed parts at a rate of 1697.44 trips per annum which is a total of 169,046 miles!
The teams overall goal was to reduce the overall trips to the Midlands by 50 %. After lots of research they found that the best method to achieve this would be to increase the pallet densities. During their investigation, they also found that whilst improving pallet densities that this also had an impact on Market Place Storage & co2 emissions.
Overall the Pressing Matters TIC team managed savings of...
Transportation reduced by 52.8% saving £448,550 p.a
Market Place Storage reduced by 55.5% saving £801,729 p.a
