Service parts logistics, spare parts management, reverse logistics, service supply chain — these are all phrases used to describe services related to post-sales support for defective hardware. The service level agreements (SLAs) associated with those parts are usually hours, not days. Success is highly dependent on a robust, consistent, fluid, and transparent process that we call the service supply chain.
Getting spare parts delivered to your global install base in hours requires strategic coordination of a complex mix of services that includes warehousing, distribution, supply chain modeling, asset recovery, transportation, trade compliance and technology. It’s not easy to keep these services working together smoothly — the potential for disruption is everywhere.
