SKY Group offers the following value added logistics services, which focus on physical activities:
- Build to order
Build to order
Build to order (BTO) focuses on the transformation of parts into finished products. The production is driven by actual customer orders. The main driver of a BTO process is to accommodate flexible customer orders and requirements with production runs. This optimizes allocation of orders to production infrastructure and resources. The finished products are already assigned to customer orders; they will be shipped via fast but optimized logistics configurations to the final customers.
An inventory point can be located at the start of the manufacturing process. This inventory can be in-house at the manufacturer location or can be located at a vendor hub managed by the supplier or by SKY Group. This inventory is stand-by inventory to facilitate the start of the production run. In most cases these inventory locations are at a strategic location close to the production locations.
SKY Group provides a full-scale packing program in order to present goods to customers and/or distributors in the best possible way.
