PROBLEM: LEAD TIME
When a large distribution facility needs a new conveyor belt, it can take two to four weeks of lead time before their order arrives from the original equipment manufacturer. This extended lead time not only makes it difficult for facility managers to plan scheduled replacements, but it also requires more inventory and puts their facility in jeopardy of costly downtime after unexpected belt failures.
SOLUTION: NATIONWIDE COVERAGE
Imagine having your own custom-fabricated conveyor belt shop with all of the correct inventory to build the belt you need, when you need it. That’s exactly what Motion Conveyance Solutions is able to provide to distribution facilities through their 18 belt shops located across the nation. So instead of having to wait two to four weeks to receive a conveyor belt, facilities receive OEM-equivalent belts in as little as five to seven days.
INTEGRATED ORDERING SYSTEM
Motion Conveyance Solutions surveyed, researched, and found the distribution company’s most critical and standard recurring belt configurations. The result was a list of almost 1,000 unique belts. Motion uploaded all the belts and custom fabrication details into their system, identified by both OEM and customer internal part numbers. Motion Conveyance Solutions can now supply complete belts from any of their belt shops nationally, ordered by an internal part number directly through the customer’s ordering system.
SAVE TIME & MONEY
Motion’s customized and personalized service saves fulfillment and distribution centers substantial time and money and helps them deliver products to their customers quickly and efficiently. Additionally, Motion Conveyance Solutions provides emergency breakdown support 24/7, with same-day service in many cases.
