Logistics – Case Study

About our client:
Open cut contract mining company.

Problem:
Our customer failed a slew ring on a large excavator. The OEM didn't have any stock within Australia, and wouldn't have any in stock for 8 weeks from order.

Solution:
We sourced a slew ring immediately available overseas. We then engaged a freight partner to inspect the slew ring, and identify opportunities to import through air freight. Within 36 hours we had a solution for our customer, with a slew ring on the way, and a service provider lined up to install the the bearing.

Outcome:
A slew ring was imported via air freight, within 10 days of the order being placed, for a similar cost to ordering from the local OEM, and saving over 6 weeks of downtime.

  • Similar cost to OEM
  • Over 6 weeks saved
  • Install organised
  • Saved critical machine downtime
  • Quality checked before purchase
  • Quick turnaround from buy to delivery
