LOGISTICS MANUFACTURING SERVICES (LMS)

 

Logistics Manufacturing Services (LMS) is Panalpina’s response to a rapidly changing global manufacturing and supply chain landscape where speed to market, product customization and the influence of the end consumer are of paramount importance.

 

Large companies, especially but not exclusively in the technology sector, are rethinking their manufacturing strategies and redesigning their global supply chains as two major manufacturing trends are unfolding: Production is moving closer to the end user again and more and more products are being customized.

 

Over the past 30 years, the globalization of trade has led to a concentration of manufacturing services in countries with low labor costs. In the technology sector, this concentration was driven by Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) and Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) companies.

 

In the meantime, many drivers of total cost of ownership in global supply chains have fundamentally changed. Product life cycles have become shorter, products are increasingly bought online and they must be delivered or brought to market fast. These are some of the reasons why production is moving from a centralized to a more distributed model. Additionally, customers are increasingly demanding customized and personalized products and have the ability to influence the product design. We have entered the era of mass personalization.

 

Panalpina’s LMS offering gives you the possibility to customize products and bring production closer to consumer demand.

 

We combine our global network of dispersed facilities with our manufacturing capabilities, thereby pushing manufacturing operations down the supply chain and closer to the end user. In this new postponement model, rather than centralizing production in one location, manufacturing is broken down into various stages at several locations. Products are only configured and finished at the final stage of the supply chain after receiving the order. This prevents products that are out of fashion or technologically obsolete from being delivered to market and it reduces risks arising from market uncertainties, which is particularly valuable for products with short life cycles.

 

We allocate critical inventory to key markets and integrate the reverse logistics process there, too. By doing so, we are also able to repair, restock, redistribute and recycle your products, components and raw materials more efficiently and effectively.

 

With LMS, Panalpina has redefined the role of the Logistics Service Provider (LSP) in modern supply chains and transformed the manufacturing and logistics strategy of important high-tech customers.

 

Depending on your needs, our team of experts can work with you already during the product design stage to ensure final products are easily produced near the market in the most cost-effective manner.
