Distribution

Philosophy


The philosophy applied to logistical flows is based on the Toyota Production System (TPS) which embodies such principles as:

- Pull system (the following stage pulls the product from the previous stage)
- Minimal stocks
- Delivery according to the Just-In-Time (JIT) principle

AW Europe is conscious of its impact on the environment and has set itself the objective of sustainably reducing its environmental footprint. For this reason, AW Europe gives priority to multi-modal transport (sea – rail – road – air) and the use of returnable packaging.

Responsibilities


AW Europe is responsible for the flow of supplies from order placement through to shipment and invoicing:
- Integrating and analysing customer requests
- Creating production and distribution plans
- Calculating requirements using the MRP system
- Passing orders to suppliers
- Monitoring orders, preparation, deliveries and billing

AW Europe handles warehousing and distribution operations in two different ways; firstly via independent warehouses located near customers. Secondly, internally, through AW Europe's warehouse in Mons for all operations linked to local production and after-sales service.
