Kalmar Industries Supplier Network
Kapitel i bok, 2012
Kalmar Industries produces heavy-duty materials handling equipment such as reach-stackers that are used in port and transportation operations. To deliver anticipated large customer orders of reach-stackers in a limited time frame, Kalmar worked to strengthen and intensify its collaboration with three major suppliers, Hiflex, Euromaster, and Kone, in a joint, co-located industrial network. The major challenge was to design the collaborative and information exchange processes between the four companies.
