The principle of automotive sequencing is for suppliers to deliver parts to the manufacturers just in time, and also in the proper build sequence, as requested by the customers. Sequencing maximizes manufacturer's floor space and reduces the inventory levels being carried by manufacturer and supplier.
KACE Logistics has been providing Sequencing and Sub-Assembly services to the automotive industry for the past 16 years. We work hand and hand with some of the largest automotive makers in the world to streamline the vehicle assembly process. Starting with picking and packaging parts in sequential order to production line
just in time delivery, KACE Logistics offers every option in the sequencing & sub-assembly world. We sequence multiple commodities which equates to over a half million parts per year servicing over 1,200 vehicles daily at our multiple locations. This year we've added 3 additional commodities to our Detroit facility.
Sequencing optimizes production efficiency while also reducing waste and parts storage space.

Metering & Repacking
K C Logistics has been metering automotive parts since 2005. Our logistics center receives over 2.25 million parts per year from our multiple suppliers and the bulk parts are then delivered to your plant systematically though out the day. Bulk parts metering is an effective way to optimize your truckload transportation schedules. This ensures the optimization of your production environment and your materials handling.
Our repackaging program is designed to help you meet your “returnable container” requirements while allowing you to save on “Round Trip” transportation costs. This is extremely important when considering International shipments.
Warehousing & Cross Docking
K C Logistics can offer your organization effective warehousing options. Whether it’s short term warehousing to help manage your inventory peaks or a long term inventory program to help relieve space within your manufacturing plant.
Cross-docking is a practice in logistics of unloading materials from an incoming semi-trailer truck or railroad car and loading these materials directly into outbound trucks, trailers, or rail cars, with little or no storage in between.
