Other Considerations

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
