Omron Case Study

Introduction
New Jinqiao Logistics provides just-in-time (JIT) warehousing and distribution services for Omron. A staff of 70, 12,000 square meters of warehouse space, and 18,000 spare parts are managed in the operation.

Challenges

  • Storage management of parts received from suppliers
  • Strong demand in the barcoding of parts
  • Lack of experience in temperature-controlled warehouse management of electronic components
  • Expanding goods type and volume
  • Emergency spare parts handling

Solutions

  • Goods are received, barcoded and onto the shelves within 24 hours
  • 24 hours corresponds to the production line and distribution services
  • Building a temperature-controlled warehouse to ensure the long-term storage of electronic components
  • Information processing services and real-time queries
  • Emergency items completed within one hour of delivery on the production line

Case Model

Benefits

  • JIT logistics services largely reduced lead time
  • The adoption of vendor management inventory (VMI) prompted suppliers to reduce inventory levels
  • VMI cut nearly all logistics costs for Omron before products hit Omron’s production line
  • Integrated logistics services and contact with VMI suppliers simplified the whole supply chain for Omron

In addition to warehousing, distribution and customs declaration, New Jinqiao Logistics provides both air and ocean freight forwarding to meet customers’ demands. However, freight forwarding is not a big part of its business.

New Jinqiao Logistics has an import/export license, which provides convenience to its customers and spurred gross revenue growth.

New Jinqiao Logistics’ customer base includes some Fortune 500 companies and many local trading companies as well. Logistics companies also rent warehouse space, which balances costs.

New Jinqiao Logistics is a good warehouse manager in Shanghai interested in cooperating with partners from overseas.
