RELEX’s CEO Mikko Kärkkäinen and Development Director Johanna Småros have written a white paper on spare parts logistics.

“Spare parts management is an area in which many companies have much room for improvement. Through accurately aimed development actions, it is possible to attain notable improvements both in service level and cost efficiency, simultaneously. However, it is important to keep in mind that not all of the management concepts that have been developed for more traditional supply chains can be applied to spare parts management. The special characteristics of the aftermarket supply chain must always be taken into consideration. In this paper, we focus on some important challenges that are typical to spare parts, and present concrete ideas and suggestions on how to tackle them”, Mikko says.
