UPS and Pelion Connect Manufacturing Process Improvements to Distribution

Pelion Systems (Boulder, Colo.), and UPS (Atlanta), are forming a partnership designed to help manufacturers drive lean supply chains.

By combining their respective expertise in manufacturing, technology, engineering and logistics processes, Pelion and UPS aim to create stronger connections between production and distribution and ensure that goods are delivered to the end customers in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible for all supply chain partners involved.

“At UPS, we focus on taking supply chains to the next level and recognize that the most efficient supply chains are built from the inside out,” said Wally Mrozik, president of UPS Professional Services, the UPS business unit managing the relationship. “Pelion’s Manufacturing Operating System is a powerful platform for driving efficiency at the factory level, which adds to our ability to help customers pull product through the network at high velocity and effectively meet changing demand.”

By defining and executing the processes necessary to achieve true pull-based production, Pelion provides managers with the demand-driven visibility and control needed to deliver customer service profitably and make smart business decisions that improve bottom-line performance. Through the coupling of Pelion’s technology with UPS’s advanced technology, engineering and project management, customers will be able to maintain tight synchronization of their supply chain and get the most from their lLean initiatives.
