  • Delivery according to schedule and/or daily call in
  • Customized durable packaging solutions

Besides our proven concepts, our advanced services development and logistics teams continuously search for advanced delivery solutions.

And we can deliver to your gate, internal marketplace, or directly to the point-of-fit

‘Zero’ stock at our customer

Our processes and agreements lead to TOTAL cost reduction through:

  • Reduced inventory or zero stock at our customer (customer pays only when a vehicle is produced)
  • Space optimization
  • Reduced handling and internal transport
  • Reduced packaging costs
  • Reduced transportation cost

Lean and efficient processes

A strong team of professionals continuously analyzes and improves Facil’s supply chain processes involving both our internal and external customers.  A wide range of proven and unique processes can be offered – and, in addition to the existing processes, there is a non-stop search for enhancements in order to remain the No. 1 in the industry.

Packaging pool

Facil has developed its own Facil box to replace cardboard or expensive pool systems which are often used in OEM.  Facil’s Advanced Services department continuously searches for further innovations to maintain unique state-of-the-art packaging systems.

Some examples

We manage unique forecast strategies for a large US Truck OEM, comprising 11 plants, 7.500 parts, 16.000 use points, and 325 suppliers.

For a large Car manufacturer, we replenish 3.000 use points every 2 hours by a unique scanning system.

Facil is much more than parts…

We’re your partner − with the solutions, passion, people and experience to support you optimally.

We’ll efficiently and cost-effectively manage your requirements while customizing a program to fit your specific needs.

Moreover, our proactive release performance analysis means that we always look for discrepancies between the Bill of Material data and actual consumption at the production line. So errors are detected very quickly, before stock-outs occur.

Giving you more peace of mind and more time to spend on your core activities.
