Selected Case Study

Unipart Rail has a number of successfully managed depot stores in the UK and Australia but following a detailed review of existing and potential customer’s requirement, the company was challenged to develop an innovative approach to supply chain management based on Lean principles, with Unipart Rail responsible for supplying all materials and services required by a rail vehicle maintenance depot as close to the point of use as possible. The solution needed to be both cost effective and add real value to the depot maintenance teams.

Freightliner at the same time approached Unipart Rail as they were opening a new depot in Crewe that would maintain the Class 86 and 90 vehicles and were looking for an innovative solution that would support their maintenance activities.
