Boost Manufacturing Plant Productivity — and Remain in Control — with Innovative Onsite Internal Logistics Management

How much more productive and cost-effective could your manufacturing plant be with the right support resources? Historically, there have been two options: manage your operation in-house with staffing agencies; or turn to a third-party logistics (3PL) company.

Now there’s a sweet spot between the two all-or-nothing options. The third option and potentially the best option for you is a customizable, innovative onsite materials management in which YOU maintain the control. Canon's logistics and management services enable you to focus on your core business. Canon is your strategic partner to maximize the productivity of your plant and drive innovation.

Internal Logistics Solution Cuts Cost For Manufacturer

One of America’s largest manufacturers saved nearly one million dollars by leveraging Canon’s internal logistics solution.

When there are fewer workers available, companies may struggle to meet production targets and orders, which can lead to lost revenue. Successfully recruiting new, skilled talent is crucial to addressing workforce shortages. Also, improving quality control is a critical component of running a successful manufacturing company, but it can be time- and labor-intensive. This is where Canon can help and has made a difference for leading automotive, aerospace and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Creating Inventory and Materials Management Efficiencies for Manufacturer

Canon receives, stores, and maintains the inventory control system for 800 components of the scientific device before fulfilling the shipment of the finalized product.
