Storage & materials handling equipment (MHE)
Specifications and procurement support
How many times have you seen a manager or buyer ask for quotes for warehouse fitout equipment (eg racking) or materials handling equipment (MHE) without providing the suppliers with an adequate Specification? Lots of times!
SCSA prepares detailed and relevant specifications for warehouse equipment to facilitate the procurement process, which enables the client to achieve the following:
- A direct apples-with-apples comparison between the various equipment suppliers’ proposals, because they are all quoting on exactly the same thing
- Lower capex costs, because the lack of ambiguity in the statement of requirement means that suppliers need not build in high contingency amounts to cover unknowns
