Our global customer base relies on Aminco for high quality products and on-time supply. This challenge exists in every environment, but especially in the current volatile freight market which is impacted by high fuel prices.
Effective supply chain management begins with proactive involvement in raw material procurement. It continues through participation in the manufacturing process which is synchronized with transportation to customers. For anode shipments, specialized packing, stowage and vessel configuration is also required.
To effectively manage freight exposure, Aminco utilizes multi-modal transportation including rail, truck and ocean transport. Normally the most competitive option is a combination of these alternatives.
In situations where a customer requires just-in-time delivery of critical materials, Aminco maintains a stockpile inventory or consignment stock. This eliminates supply disruption due to transportation delays and also reduced working capital requirements for our customers.
Aminco is only satisfied when our customers are. This translates into having our products be “In Spec and On Time.”
