CMC’s Management Principles
CMC brings fundamental change to logistics and cost control by delivering services in line with 5 key management principles
Traditional in-house M&R departments are a fixed cost regardless of activity levels. By outsourcing to CMC, customers can move to a variable cost model, allowing build-up and build-down flexibility in a high-service on demand environment.
An in-house M&R department is often limited by incomplete analysis of where, when and how costs are incurred and allocated. CMC’s services provides classification of every dollar of cost and identifies the tools needed to implement cost improvements in rapidly-changing transportation supply chains.
Customers typically only have access to their own data and lack the ability to perform industry benchmarking. CMC’s unique database of comparative cost and service performance statistics, derived from a broad customer base, allow customers to set targets for service quality on a global or regional basis.
In house M&R departments using by a mix of in-house and third-party contractors have difficulty maintaining a single inspection criterion and M&R standards around the world. CMC technical representatives are all trained to perform services using standard methodologies and criteria in every part of the world.
Key to CMC management style is a collaborative approach, working with customers and vendors to control cost, maximize equipment throughput, maintaining repair quality and preserving asset ROI.
