To survive in the market, it is important to make products that can be individualised. This particularly applies to the leisure goods industry. Most companies prepare the blanks up to the shaping production step and only apply the customer’s individual design once they receive an order. The planning cycles are usually in the range of half a year, which is one season. This means input materials and machines are planned for this period, allowing customer requests to be quickly processed. Seasonal fluctuations are to be expected, particularly for water and winter sports. When the production of blanks during a six-month period exceeds the number of orders, the blanks are put into intermediate storage. This results in storage costs of €12 per surfboard.
My name is Max Kahler, formerly a passionate surfer, and I have focused my logistics company on the supply and storage of all input materials for surfboards. Our specialisation has provided us with plenty of insight and experience in the surfing sector and we can, therefore, offer the complete package and provide all raw materials needed to produce surfboards. Our input material packages are particularly suitable for standardised processes and the use of volume scaling. We offer a variety index of 40.
We offer many of our services on an individual basis and can only quote you a price once we have reached agreement. The current delivery conditions for all our standard services are shown in the following table:
