Will Trucking Challenges Transform JITS in North America?
OCTOBER 22, 2019
JITS is the acronym for “just-in-time-sequence,” a common supply chain practice in the automotive industry that eliminates or significantly reduces the need to maintain parts inventory at the assembly plant. The advantage of a ‘pull’ system, over more traditional push based manufacturing, is that we only produce what is needed when it’s needed. Needing to carry only a few hours worth of inventory, thereby savings on inventory carrying costs and working capital.
