When working on a project, you want your materials delivered in a timely manner to ensure you stay on schedule. Logistics should be a main component you have in place before you begin your project. No matter how organized you may be, if you are waiting too long for a delivery it might disrupt your original plan and cost you a substantial amount of time and money.
Last year we added logistics to our list of services in order to complete jobs that meet our specific customer needs. Below we listed three reasons how our logistics services can help your business:
We can save you time and money.
Our logistics services allow us to provide quick, reliable shipping capabilities to any job site. Whether it’s a shipment of materials arriving later than expected or arriving incomplete, logistics issues can derail a job’s timeline. We map out the best strategy for your deliveries so it is easy to calculate costs and avoid surprises.
We are continuously improving.
We understand that business owners don’t always have the time to practice the most efficient logistics methods, which is why our expert staff is perpetually finding ways to improve our process. We have the technology and expertise to make quick changes in supply chain management. We create customized logistics solutions for each of our clients.
Quality is never compromised.
Customer service is our number one priority. We pride ourselves on getting the job done right and on time. We anticipate problems before they happen, guaranteeing exceptional material handling and transportation quality.
M.A.P General Mechanical Contractors provides service that is nonpareil. Call us today and find out how we can tailor our logistics services to your specific needs: 989-496-3456.
Here at M.A.P. General Mechanical Contractors, Inc., we believe there are many ways we separate ourselves from the competition. Our reputation has been built on exceeding client needs and expectations, completing jobs on time, and adding value to every project with our attitude and communication.
A recent project, installing a new boiler for Michigan Sugar Company in Croswell, Mich., tested us in all of these areas and more. This job included installing all related piping, including the boiler feedwater, natural gas, and boiler blowdown piping. While this started as a common job for M.A.P., we immediately faced a major hurdle.
The project was estimated and scheduled to be a six-week job, but the boiler itself arrived three weeks late. However, true to our word, we adjusted our plan and were still able to complete the project in the promised six-week deadline. Our flexibility helped immensely, according to Jeff Emery, project manager. “We added more manpower, and developed a good strategy as far as what we needed to do,” said Emery.
At M.A.P., we are fortunate to have a team that worked together and allowed us to still complete this job on time. However, it went beyond having a hardworking and committed team. There were several other areas that helped us complete this job on time, and that are standard to doing business with us.
We know our craft and scope. After more than 40 years in the industry, we have grown to a full-service contractor with a staff built on the strongest experience in all the fields we serve. At every step of a project you will be working with a knowledgeable team member, helping complete the work in a way that best suits your specific organization. According to Emery, “M.A.P. has created a cultured group of craftsmen, that have been with us for a long time and know how we run our business.”
We have exceptional office staff. The companies we work with deserve to be supported by a strong team across the board. Our office staff is critical in helping maintain communication between ownership, project managers, subcontractors, and the customer. We believe you should always be able to reach somebody to quickly get an answer, and our staff allows us to deliver just that.
We have the right attitude. We also believe there’s more to working with a company than simply getting a job done on time. We value strong relationships and take pride in our work. Attacking all jobs with a positive, do-what-it-takes attitude helps us continue to work safely, efficiently, and leave a lasting impression with all customers.
Though we were faced with unique challenges, but it was rewarding to finish the boiler project on time for Michigan Sugar Company. If you have an upcoming project, we’d love to start a conversation about how M.A.P. can serve you next. Contact us today!
To further improve our services, we are excited to announce our newest offering. In August of this year, we purchased a full fleet of in-house trucks, allowing us to add full logistic services to the business.
From the very beginning, our mission has been to complete jobs that meet specific customer needs, with additional emphasis on safety, budget, and deadlines. In adding logistics services, we have moved closer to being able to fully manage any job, in any industry, from Start-to-Finish.
Our logistics services allow us to provide quicker, more reliable shipping capabilities to any job site. Slower logistics companies can lead to unwarranted headaches in completing a job. Whether it’s a shipment of materials arriving later than expected or arriving incomplete, logistics issues can derail a job’s timeline. We have always believed in our customer promise; getting the job done right and on-time. Our logistics team is an added value that will further ensure that promise is kept.
There are a couple other issues in dealing with outside logistics companies. There is no guarantee on the material handling or transportation quality, both of which could lead to further problems down the road. Every step of our logistics process meets the same standards as the rest of our work, meaning quality will never be compromised.
This is an exciting growth opportunity for our company, and we know our customers will reap several benefits of our logistics services. Contact us today to learn more about how we can complete your next job!
