Good Saab messages are promised, good Saab messages are delivered. We are in a premiere week. After a successful trial operation is now the regional warehouse of the Orio Germany in Neu-Isenburg near Frankfurt am Main in operation.
Orio, the exclusive supplier for Saab original parts, has more than 2.500 components in stock at its distribution partner DB Schenker on an area of 1.100 square meters. For Orio AB it is the first warehouse in the euro area. A first that offers many advantages and helps to minimize currency risk. The fact that Germany was chosen as the location shows the importance of the market in the world of Saab and is a result of the good work that is being done in Eschborn.
The connection to Sweden has improved with the new warehouse. Nyköping trucks will drive to Neu-Isenburg daily on weekdays; the first regular transport is on its way today.
The benefit for us and the Saab partners is tangible. Deliveries from Neu-Isenburg have a shorter delivery time than orders that are processed in Nyköping. The IRIS system checks the availability of incoming orders and gives preference to the German location if the inventory is positive.
Spare parts delivered by the Hessian regional warehouse are, if they are ordered up to 12: 00 clock, the next day before 7: 00 clock at the Saab service points. The delivery time is halved. Good news!
From now on Saab will supply partners in Germany and Austria. The service partners in Switzerland will follow soon and will also benefit from shorter delivery times. Orio will continuously optimize the stock in the German regional warehouse and adapt it to the needs of the market. In addition, they will continue to invest significant sums in the Saab brand and expand their business. The old IRIS ordering system will disappear over the next few months.
It will be replaced by a new, Internet-based ordering system that has already been introduced in Sweden. In the summer months, the pilot operation will start with selected Saab partners in Germany and Austria. After a successful pilot phase, the introduction takes place at all contracting parties.
The advantages of the new logistics base are obvious - they affect our daily life with Saab. Shorter delivery times, high availability. The week brings a start that could not be better. It continues positively. Our tour to the festival starts, on Thursday we celebrate a Saab premiere. More good news would be welcome!
