Unipart Logistics Tracking Down Jaguar Parts From UK to US
Unipart Logistics has started its tracking of Jaguar auto parts while the same are transported in cargo containers from the United Kingdom to the United States. Said auto parts were tracked by SaviTrak(TM), a Radio Frequency Identification-based (RFID) information service from Savi Networks. This is in connection with the automaker’s ‘Jaguar Tradelane Project’ which uses Jaguar car parts from inland warehouse and distribution centers.
Jaguar Tradelane Project is aimed to evaluate the standing of Jaguar car parts in some areas. This project also endeavors to improve real-time visibility of container shipments, lessen lead-times and time variances involved in the delivery, reduce costs linked to urgent cargo transportation which causes delay, develop information accuracy, and improve overall supply chain as well as customer service performance. Automakers parts included in the shipment include Jaguar S Type parts and Jaguar XJ Series parts.
Carl Powell, director and general manager of USP, the Supply Chain Consultancy Division of Unipart Logistics said: "As a long-time, leading provider and innovator of logistics solutions, Unipart is looking to continuously improve services to our clients, and we expect the SaviTrak information service will help Jaguar and potentially other customers gain greater value through improved supply chain performance. Within Unipart Logistics we focus on providing industry-leading levels of customer service and product availability. Within the project we are creating targeted measurements to quantify SaviTrak benefits to improve supply chain visibility and performance, security status monitoring, and overall economics."
In addition, Lani Fritts, chief operating officer of Savi Networks, said: "SaviTrak delivers new levels of performance measurement and execution capability for logistics companies such as Unipart and for their customers. Our customers are gaining better control and visibility over their supply chains, which allow them to make better and more timely decisions on their global shipments."
Unipart in cooperation with Savi Networks provided superb services to monitor the location, condition and security status of Jaguar auto parts container shipments. The monitoring also involves factories, ports and other supply chain nodes.
