Why Outsource Fastener Management

With the extreme level of detail associated with managing the fastener supply chain, manufacturers in automotive, electronics, transportation and aerospace must either maintain highly complex operations, or outsource to an expert partner. Outsourcing often results in more accurate, efficient and cost-effective outcomes because logistics partners are more specialized and have in-depth, optimized processes than manufacturers can support on their own.

  • Reduce overhead costs significantly by outsourcing time-consuming picking activities
  • Take advantage of a curated network of parts suppliers
