SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
AND LOGISTICS

International sourcing programs require constant attention. EQI implements and manages programs for clients in many industries, giving them access to a truly global supply chain  without the day-to-day project management headaches. Our supply chain management (SCM) and logistics services include attentive order management/tracking, door-to-door logistics management, JIT global delivery, supplier relations, and ongoing freight rate negotiation. Through our offices in the U.S., China, and India, staff are available virtually 24/7 to answer questions and keep projects moving. Our U.S.-based business office manages the necessary paperwork (shipping, customs, and duty documents), logistics, and payment arrangements, providing these benefits:

  • Close, daily attention to every order
  • Accurate forecasting
  • Low freight rates due to constant contact/negotiations with shippers
  • Combined shipping of different products for a single customer (or for two geographically close customers)
  • Optional online freight tracking, for real-time order status
  • Vendor-managed inventory solutions
  • Order expediting and follow-through by a U.S. contact
  • Containerization for shipping anywhere in the world

CONSULTING & FEASABILITY STUDIES

EQI applies its experience in sourcing components and subassemblies internationally to help clients in various industries evaluate the viability of sourcing parts and products from China and other emerging manufacturing regions. EQI’s consulting services include industry research/investigation, supplier discovery and evaluation, feasibility studies, and a comprehensive analysis of sourcing options.

SOLUTIONS SOURCING

EQI identifies competitive sources of a variety of high-quality products for clients in multiple industries. Our staff is highly experienced in forming partnerships between American companies and emerging-market suppliers, and in developing manufacturers to meet customer needs.

INVENTORY MANAGEMENT

Flexibility is the key to EQI’s inventory management service – we can tailor an inventory solution to each customer’s needs. Many customers opt for vendor-managed inventory (VMI) in a third-party warehouse near their location. EQI often owns the product until it’s pulled from inventory, reducing our customer’s working capital requirements.

PROGRAM MANAGEMENT

This complete package encompasses all of EQI’s supply chain and production services – engineering support, tool building, prototyping, sampling and PPAP, order management, quality oversight, production, kitting, logistics management, finish operations, and inventory control.
