Supply Chain Management
We effectively vet, retain and manage manufacturing supply chains.
Effective supply chain management is resource and time intensive, and it's hard to do well. JetCo's vetting process ensures only high-quality, responsive manufacturers are included in our supply chain.
We favor small manufacturers because it's important for them to have powerful government sales channels.
Our supply chain management approach incorporates education, monitoring and candid communication. We teach suppliers how to comply with flowdown requirements, we grade their quality and responsiveness, and we clearly communicate expectations. If partners don't have great quality, we fire them respectfully.
We retain suppliers through respectful, consistent communication and prompt payment.
JetCo pays suppliers in an average of 3.4 days.
JetCo's on-time delivery rate is 98.21%
One of our contracts requires us to deliver 110 different line items to 86 locations across the country with no predictability in the ordering cycle, and at a 5 unit minimum. We're killing it and impressing the client with every interaction.
“JetCo management is very responsive to the government’s needs. They are proactive and have reached out to the government several times through meetings, emails, and phone calls to provide updates on their business operations regarding boxes, recommendations on box requirements, process improvements, shipping issues, etc. The management and staff are very professional in their communications with the government. JetCo management is forward thinking and continually strives to improve its business relationship with the government.”
