[photopress:zones_Suzhou.jpg,full,alignright]Fairchild Semiconductor, a leading global supplier of high performance products, has opened a regional fulfillment center located in the Suzhou Logistics Center. This free trade zone logistics center has the capability to meet the requirements of China customs allowing direct shipments from Fairchild to China-based customers.
The regional fulfillment center provides a more environmentally friendly, energy efficient supply chain, by reducing total transportation fuel requirements that will result in shorter cycle times.
Robin Goodwin, Fairchild’s senior vice president, Supply Chain Management said, ‘This new logistic center marks the beginning of an exceptional opportunity for Fairchild. We’re able to provide our customers with better, faster and improved fulfillment services. We’re now shipping our products from our facilities in China, directly to local customers, without exporting them and then shipping them back. We’re very happy to offer our customers in China faster delivery time and vastly improved delivery performance.’
Fairchild’s 1,000 square meters, fully bonded warehouse has temperature and humidity control. It segregates inventory and transactions as well as activities and shipments and material from Fairchild’s manufacturing facility for delivery to local customers in China, and throughout the world.
In addition to managing delivery of products from Fairchild’s direct facilities, the company can also manage the subcontractor activities; products built by local companies can also be shipped directly to local and worldwide customers through the new fulfillment center.
