Manufacturer Reduces Supply Chain Costs of Relocating to Singapore

Challenge: Our customer relocated operations to Singapore. Increased real estate and labor costs made warehouse space for product staging unfeasible. In addition, strict copy exact customer rules meant many components were still sourced from the U.S.

Solution: MIQ Logistics created a supplier inventory hub in the free zone at the Singapore Changi Airport. With warehouse space available, vendors could ramp up production and shift from parcel and airfreight to less costly ocean freight.

MIQ Logistics discovered multiple U.S vendors within a 20-mile radius. We developed a pickup schedule for more consistent product flow, lower inland transportation costs and airfreight consolidation opportunities.

Results: By consolidating air shipments, opening a supplier inventory hub and creating a new ocean program, MIQ Logistics saved the customer >60% in transportation costs. In addition, the customer retained its existing supplier base and maintain its competitive rates - avoiding the lengthy and costly copy exact audits.

About the Solution Provider: MIQ Logistics is a global logistics company headquartered in Overland Park, Kan., and with offices in North America, Asia, Europe and Latin America. MIQ Logistics enables companies to improve their transportation network and overall supply chain efficiency by offering flexible logistics solutions supported by Web-native technology and global logistics management capabilities.
