ALW Averages a 15.6 Business-Day Production Time and a 97% On-Time Shipping Percentage for All 2021 Orders, Amid Global Supply Chain Shortages & Delays
ALW announced that despite global supply chain shortages affecting the lighting industry, they continue to ship their entire linear, cylinder, rings, and decorative product portfolio on time. ALW’s year-to-date On-Time Shipping metric, which measures if each lighting order is shipped on or before the scheduled date, remains a very impressive 97%. Through aggressive inventory investments and management, ALW has also maintained their standard lead time of four to six weeks and noted that the average order production time is only 15.6 business days. Additionally, ALW offers one of the largest QuickShip programs for linear, cylinder, and ring luminaires, shipping those orders in ten business days or less (www.ALWUSA.com/quickship/).
Providing specifiers, agents, distributors, and contractors the highest level of service and confidence is a top priority, and ALW is now making these critical order metrics available real-time on their website (www.ALWUSA.com/metrics/), taking transparency to a new level.
Lighting specifiers, distributors, and contractors are encouraged to contact ALW for product and pricing assistance ([email protected]) or connect with the ALW agency rep in their territory (www.alwusa.com/locate-an-agent/) for new or existing projects.
