Here is a listing of some of the topics that are important for suppliers to consider and address, if the sequencing requirement is put in place for them.
- Shipping rack configurations and their flow between the supplier and manufacturer
- The stacking of shipping containers
- Trailer size (48 vs. 53ft.)
- High or low sequence in the nose of the truck
- Cubing of trucks vs. "milk runs"
- Floor space required for empty and full containers
- Contingencies in case of machine/system failure
