By their very nature, receiving high value items of equipment and materials on time will be critical for the buying organisation.

The consequences of late delivery can have dramatic effect of the cost and timescale of overall work programmes such as projects and major maintenance works (shutdowns / turnarounds etc.) These high value items are often complex in technical terms, have long delivery times, possibly sourced from suppliers in overseas locations and experience a complex supply chain for all the necessary components.

Furthermore, depending on the delivery terms chosen for a Purchase Order, there can be many parties involved in getting the high value item from the supplier to the client’s work site. Effective expediting requires that all these factors are considered from an early stage in the procurement of those items if the risk of ‘late delivery’ is to be avoided or at least minimised.
This course is designed for: 
Staff at all levels who are involved in the procurement & supply of high value items, including technical staff whose roles include the planning, specification and installation of high value materials and equipment.
Topics covered will include:
  • Overview of roles and responsibilities in achieving on-time arrival of high value items.
  • Planning for on-time arrival.
  • The value of good internal relationships - technical and procurment staff  -  in achieving on-time delivery.
  • Technical influences affecting timeliness of arrival.
  • Key factors before award of purchase orders that can reduce the risk of late delivery
  • Applying the appropriate levels of expediting to a high value purchase order.
  • Shipping and arrival of high value items..
  • Developing an Expediting Plan

This course is available for in-house delivery if required.

This course will be conducted in the English language.
