In a competitive battle, logistics is a place to seek strategic advantage. With a competitive supply chain, you can expand your market area, enhancer service and improve your bottom line.
We commonly look at three supply chains as segregated entities and integrate them into an efficient operation. The chains are, of course: internal, external, and reverse. Improvement in each of these chains enhances your competitive position. Our experience in training allow us to find the common, and often, the hidden inefficiencies that have developed within the supply chain. They may be external: supplier to manufacture or manufactured to customer. Or, they may be internal: movement of raw materials or work-in-progress within the facility or between facilities. Or, they may be found in a complex reverse logistics operations chain.
Inventory management, storage, and packaging are also strategic points of interest in ensuring a fully integrated supply chain. Our experience in these areas coupled with our knowledge of hazardous materials and other risks that are involved make us an excellent choice to improve or develop your supply chain.
Projects, such as, environmental cleanup, exporting to new countries, new market areas, and others, require special attention in the logistics arena for a short period of time. We will assist in the management of these projects. By doing this, the company can avoid stretching their personnel too thin or hiring extra personnel for a short period of time.
Attention to the nation’s infrastructure needs often utilizes grants and other support for rebuilding. Hawks Logistics, inc has often worked with clients to receive these benefits. Usually, obtaining these grants and other benefits often requires carefully following the instructions for grant completion or other directions from the grantor. Experience in this area increases the chance for success.
Operating procedures, especially under quality programs, requires supervisors to learn about and take time away from their normal duties to write the procedures. This is especially true when writing procedures for hazardous materials transportation. We are trained and will write your procedures in the manner you prescribe.
