In today’s increasingly competitive business environment, OEMs and Tier I EMS Providers are challenged to:

  • Procure high-quality assemblies at the lowest total cost of ownership
  • Maximize cash flow efficiency by minimizing inventory
  • Eliminate crippling supply distributions
  • Reduce risk throughout the entire supply chain
  • Accelerate delivery to customers amidst new global competition

By combining the manufacturing capabilities of our US and China manufacturing operations with our customized and flexibly supply programs managed through our distribution centers in Boston, Tijuana and Xiamen, Segue is uniquely positioned to balance these demands for on-time delivery of cost effective assemblies to customer sites around the globe.

Balance Demands and Reduce Risk with Segue's Custom Programs of Supply

Finished Goods Supply Planning

Safety stock in our Boston, Tijuana and Xiamen distribution centers is based on statistical analysis of demand patterns and replenishing customer inventory through Min-Max or Kanban supply programs.

Mixed Mode Manufacturing Models

Segue offers full-scale production of your products at our USA, Mexico and China sites. Maintaining live manufacturing cells and supply chains for these facilities has numerous benefits. Our Boston operation enables us to react quickly to changes in customer demand or to quality issues requiring rapid repair or replacement, while our Mexico and China operations provide the benefits of low-cost region right-shored manufacturing.

Streamlining Asian Logistics: Port of Xiamen

The Port of Xiamen is the 4th largest shipping port in China, which has very efficient customs processes. Typical customs and transit time from Xiamen to the Western US seaboard is 14-17 days vs. 4 weeks or longer from Hong Kong.

“Dock-to-Stock” Supply Programs

Segue offers a fully customized Dock to Stock program for customers with consistent production volumes and manufacturing repeatability.

Advanced Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management

Techniques such as Just-in-Time (JIT) Manufacturing and Demand Flow production lines, Kanban, Min-Max inventory replenishment systems and Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) programs assure a high delivery service level from our suppliers while reducing our inventory load.

In-House Logistics and Customer Service

Segue has supply chain teams in all of our locations who manage the details and complexities of shipping goods to customers and end customers around the world. We have strategic logistics and distribution partners in the USA, Mexico and China for both normal and expedited customs clearance and deliveries.

Attractive Terms with Air and Ocean Freight Carriers

We routinely provide our volume customers with on-time delivery service levels greater than 99% while minimizing the amount of inventory they hold in their facilities–even on assemblies that we manufacture in China and Mexico and ship to the USA or elsewhere.
