Improve Service Performance via our Integrated Network

We are the lone option that offers all of these services as part of our core business, under one roof with no hand offs. What does this mean to you?

All Modes of Transport Under One Roof (Hybrid Solutions)
Priorities shift and change over time. Much of this can be driven by the value of inventory. When inventory is extremely valuable, it makes sense to hold less of it and lean on transit times to make up for lower levels of high value inventory. When inventory costs are low, it makes sense to hold more of it (and in more locations) because that generally allows for reduced transportation spend. The challenge is that these costs change over time and can be impacted by the cost of capital and other factors. What makes the most sense today may not work well tomorrow.
Why not select a provider that can handle both highly valuable inventory in far few locations with exceptional same day service capabilities – that can also help you if and when inventory values and the cost of capital is lower? We are capable of helping you with all modes of transport – including servicing your account with both extremely high service performance requirements and providing cost effective storage and transportation solutions. ILS offers the best of both worlds and provides a solution that can scale and change to meet the changing needs of your business.

Executed properly, service parts logistics can be a key competitive advantage and profit center for many companies, including technology-intensive industries. However, to a large degree, a manufacturer or retailer’s ability to run a high-quality, highly profitable post-sales service operation is the direct result of the effectiveness and efficiency of its service parts logistics.
Service parts logistics is complex, dynamic, and challenging – characterized, for instance, by irregular demand and by tension between minimizing inventory costs and minimizing customers’ downtime. Many businesses muddle through with service parts logistics performance well short of ideal, inflating costs, damaging customer relations and eroding profits.
