Featured Client: Metro Mold and Design

Metro Mold and Design (MMD) is a Rogers, MN based, one stop shop for rapid mold manufacturing, custom plastic injection molding, thermoset plastic molding, extrusion blow molding, and precision CNC machining.  With an expanding operation, they contacted SJF in the fall of 2013 to assist in a layout and move into an new shipping warehouse.  MMD was at the time occupying and older warehouse with little lighting and low ceiling, and was planning a move to a newer building with a 32′ ceiling.

The plan was to install very narrow aisle (VNA) rack to max out warehouse space in the new building.  After discussing it with SJF, MMD decided on a different plan altogether.

Guest Post: The Best Cheapest Fuel That You’re Not Using

Today’s post is courtesy of our friend Paul Schroeder.

I have a fuel quiz for all you supply chain folks out there. Ready?

  1. When was the last time the price of diesel dipped below $3/gallon nationally?
  2. When was the last time gasoline fell below $3/gallon nationally?
  3. When was the last time gasoline fell below $2/gallon nationally?
  4. When was the last time gasoline fell below $1/gallon nationally?

Have your answers? Great. Now here are two bonus questions:

  1. What was the price per gallon of compressed natural gas in 1999?
  2. How much did the price of compressed natural gas increase since January 2012?

Why ask these questions?

Simple. The price at the pump is going down . . . sort of. News reporters are happily gushing about fuel projections— how prices might dip to near $3/gallon or perhaps slightly less by year’s end. Good news, right? For smart fleet managers in the supply chain it’s both yes and no.

It is good news because the amount of fuel used to keep the supply chain humming is pretty significant. Locking in lower fuel costs saves money a company can invest in something that improves the overall operation of the company. However, falling gasoline and diesel prices are still too high. Smart fuel managers in the supply chain also know how volatile the gasoline and diesel markets are. All it takes for a new round of price increases is a crackpot in the Middle East, a natural disaster or a disruption in refining to send prices back to record levels.
