Material Handling Cost Reduction and Strategic Sourcing Services
Source One’s MRO Procurement consultants supplement our clients’ internal teams to develop and execute Material Handling Strategic Sourcing initiatives to reduce costs and develop competitive advantages.
Material Handling is among the most complicated sectors of MRO spend. Comprised of forklifts, reach trucks, batteries, fleet management software, dollies, and similar equipment, effective sourcing in the category is essential for optimizing warehouse operations and maximizing fleet life.
Developing an approach to Material Handling Strategic Sourcing means navigating a crowded provider landscape. Procurement teams are tasked with weighing the benefits of local manufacturers versus those of national distributors. While these Material Handling providers offer similar types of equipment, the quality and life of their Material Handling products are far from consistent. Securing a cost effective relationship with a high-quality Material Handling provider typically requires more resources and Procurement expertise than an overworked organization is capable of providing.
Procurement professionals in the Material Handling space are confronted with a number of variables. To determine the most cost-effective sourcing strategy, they need to decide between purchasing new Material Handling equipment, purchasing used Material Handling equipment, renting this equipment, leasing it, or outsourcing their Material Handling operations to a Fleet Management provider.
Arriving at their sourcing strategy is further complicated by numerous variables. Seasonality of Material Handling needs, in-house maintenance capacity, daily Material Handling use, and other factors all play into Procurement’s decision making. The enormity of this task leads many organizations to develop ineffective methods for sourcing within the category. Locked into ineffective Material Handling partnerships, they miss out on savings and suffer through inefficient warehouse operations.
