Understanding lead time considerations is a critical part of the planning process involved when a customer is considering a purchase of portable stacking racks from Tier-Rack. 

As a producer of stack racks and tire racks, we work to provide the best value to end-users.  This value is a found in a complement of materials and manpower.  With two manufacturing plants our volume gives us significant buying power with major producers of tubular steel, decking components and common rack parts for the basic tire rack and stack rack.  As a sixty year old company, we have the engineering and production expertise to optimize labor and materials to minimize cost and reduce the final selling pricing to our customer.

The following narratives on lead time considerations for material and manpower will help our customers gain an understanding of what is required to maximize value on an order for Tier-Rack products.

Imported Stack Racks as an Option

Stack Rack, Stack Rack

In some situations, and in some geographic areas imported portable stacking racks can provide a good value to the end-user.

 Tier-Rack has a decade long association with producers in China who can provide quality stack racks at competitive pricing levels.  Typically value can be found when (1) the order volume is high (1,000 units or more), (2) the rack style is common: i.e. commodity (tire racks or warehouse racks) not specialized or highly customized (3) lead time is generous and (4) the destination point is served by nearby container cargo ports (typically West Coast).

 Tier-Rack can provide comparison costs for import vs. domestic production to aid our current and prospective customers with their buying needs.  As shipping costs and international monetary rates fluctuate, the value line for imported racks can change with frequency.  For some customers, it is an option to view with eyes wide open.

 Without doubt, the greatest supply chain control is found with domestically produced product.  Higher assurances on quality, more closely monitored production processes and greater assurance of delivery on schedule has value.
