Ready to use ferroalloys without the need to create your own stock in-house. Discover our just-in-time delivery service and contact us for further details.
We have been operating in the iron and steel industry for over 30 years during which we have fine-tuned an efficient logistic process which allows us to guarantee consistent deliveries of ferroalloys to optimise the work procedures of our customers, to maintain low in-house stock without interrupting production plant operations. Below are further details on our just-in-time logistics for the supply of ferroalloys.
How the just-in-time logistics for ferroalloys actually works
Just-in-time logistics applied to the iron and steel industry, and in particular the supply of ferroalloys, envisages quarterly orders of materials which are not delivered immediately to the customer, but are stored in our 45,000 sqm warehouse.
Here the ferroalloys are inspected to guarantee their quality, they are screened and crushed if special sizes are required, packed in big bags if the service is requested and remain ready to despatch until the steelworks or foundry submit a delivery order.
Deliveries of materials
The delivery of the ferroalloys to our customer facilities only takes place when the material is actually required. This can take place at scheduled time intervals, e.g. once a week, or upon request: with a simple phonecall the ready to use materials stored in our warehouse on behalf of a customer are ready to be despatched to the relevant production facility!
The advantages of just-in-time logistics for the iron and steel industry
Thanks to our logistics set-up, steelworks and foundries can always count on the stock in our warehouse, with the certainty of always having materials ready for delivery to their facilities.
This optimises the space and costs required to manage a warehouse at a customer’s facility and, at the same time, provides a guarantee for the delivery of the raw materials, because we are always ready to delivery the materials as soon as they are required for production.
Putting a just-in-time logistics system in place requires a dynamic and well-structured internal organisation, but in AL.FA Laminati we can also count on a team which is able to provide an impeccable service to customers and consistently punctual, or rather “just-in-time” deliveries.
