Companies in the warehousing and shipping industry are familiar with kitting. It’s a technique that has become popular with the rise of online stores. By kitting, businesses can ensure they provide their customers and clients with everything they need to complete the task at hand.
At TFC, we use computer-controlled systems to ensure all components and assemblies involved in a kit are purchased, manufactured, and packaged together in accordance with the customer’s specifications. Our parts kitting service ensures that parts are compatible and reduces downtime waiting for different parts to arrive to get your equipment going.
With our parts kitting services, we ship all components in a single bundle, saving shipping costs while delivering quality parts from one reputable source.
Why You Should Use Our Parts Kitting Service
Kitting in all industries provides immense benefits to the business and clients that use it. At TFC, we have an enhanced parts-kitting service that businesses and direct clients can use to cut their sourcing times and reduce logistics costs. Additional advantages of using our parts-kitting service include the following;
The process of purchasing parts can be gruelling for customers. Typically it involves purchasing different components and sending the part numbers to different suppliers. Our part-kitting service helps manufacture and package all the parts necessary in one package. Only one part number is needed to place the order for all the components reducing the chances of costly and time-consuming errors in packaging and manufacturing that can result in you getting incompatible parts.
Faster goods receipt
With our parts kitting service, you get your OEM parts faster because you only need to book one line instead of multiple lines for the different products. Everything is manufactured and packaged simultaneously, compared to waiting for different items to be manufactured and then packaged at different times.
We save you time by having to look for individual components. Improved material supply reduces the time you spend looking for individual components, returning incompatible parts, and waiting for the right ones. You can spend your time productively growing your business and getting your equipment working.
Reduced ledger activity
When using the parts kitting service, we raise one invoice for all the items included in the kit. We require fewer part numbers and fewer invoices, making it easier to follow up on the different components through various production and packaging stages.
What Our Parts Kitting Process Looks Like
On the surface, a kitting service with many moving parts looks complex. There are indeed many moving parts when kitting parts, but the process is relatively simple, especially for our customers. We assign a single SKU in the system, which we follow from start to finish. The entire process follows five main steps:
The customer gets in touch with our sales with a part number for the component they want. Our team receives the order and begins processing it.
To make the kit, we determine the components that go with the provided part number. We can do this based on the product used, theme colour, or other shared factors the customer shares. You can also look into wholesale products that you can put into kits to maximize margins.
After determining the components to be included in the parts kit, we will assign the bundle a unique SKU number in the system. Although the parts are manufactured individually, they represent a single sellable product once bundled. For OEM customers, your inventory system should track this SKU number to give you better insight into the sales trends and proper inventory counts.
Since the items are produced individually, our teams assemble and bundle them into kits so you don’t have to when they arrive at your warehouse. During this process, we also ensure customers get all the parts that come in that kit to ensure efficiency and save time and money.
We ship the kits to the customers. We deliver the parts in bundles, so it is easier for OEM customers to sell them as is without having to unpack them.
Our computer-controlled systems ensure all components and assemblies in the kit are bundled to your specification. Our high accuracy level ensures we always deliver each order to the customer’s requirements.
