There are many organizations throughout the world that are capable of handling simple projects. But life isn’t simple. When it gets complex you need a partner that understands your needs and is able to provide innovative, timely, trusted supply chain solutions. That’s TWI.
Sourcing / Category Management
Through our extensive supplier base, TWI integrates a support plan based on the commodities and geographies that may not be effectively covered by your existing suppliers and service providers. From there, TWI reevaluates current vendors while new vendors are validated in an automated, supplier management program.
Logistics / Service Management
Establishing and maintaining competing networks of logistics providers highlight this stage. Along with building an extensive network of logistics providers, new freight forwarding contracts based on operational requirements are established after an analysis of existing service agreements is completed.
Pricing / Estimating Support
TWI’s broad supplier network, volume buying power and information systems and databases customized for procurement operations helps us provide responsive and competitive pricing support for customers planning or bidding activities.
TWI performs all purchasing activities in accordance with FAR-compliant procurement policies and procedures utilizing our proprietary systems or within a customer’s own system should they desire. All transactions are executed based on pre-established approval procedures with complete documentation and transparency.
Expediting / Process Management
TWI manages suppliers and service providers in the post-purchase phase, ensuring early or on-time delivery of materials to customer sites. TWI provides regular updates, delivery reports, and facilitates resolution of any discrepancies upon delivery.
Distribution / Project Management
TWI provides a full range of logistics services, including receiving, quality control, consolidation, shipping, and delivery to the end customer. In-transit visibility (ITV) of all goods throughout the shipment lifecycle is another pre-requisite. We manage all logistics support in alignment with the customer’s mission and goals.
TWI engages the client’s procurement and logistics staff to establish baseline requirements and priorities of effort. Tasks can include market research, consideration of sourcing options, and systems integration discussions.
