  7. 7. PROJECT MANAGEMENT Suddath believes the term "project management" is more than just the coordination and tracking of product shipments. Our Project Managers constantly challenge the norm and seek to outperform in our client’s best interest. Their focus is maintaining the most efficient and safe operations possible. Our typical project management team is based on a number of key personnel: l Project Implementation Manager (PIM), corporate based l Project Manager (PM), site based l Project Coordinator (PC), consolidation point based Quality Assurance and Cost Control l Inspection of product at supplier location and/or consolidation point drastically reduces the probability of damaged or incorrect product arriving on site l Proactive forecasting of inbound shipments l Use of the same dock & drayage facilities prevents unforeseen delays l Variable support staff reduces costly overhead Because our project management team tracks the progress of your project as a whole, we provide control and visibility that supplier-routed transportation or employing multiple logistics providers cannot offer. With the assistance of our advanced information systems, our project managers help you to keep projects on schedule and on budget. Communication and Reporting At Suddath, we believe that open communication, group planning, teamwork and constant performance reporting are key to a successful project and high customer satisfaction. We maintain a schedule of regular progress meetings with our clients and service providers throughout all stages of the project. Frequent cost reporting, work in progress reports, updated schedules, and service reviews keep all parties informed on current operations.

  10. 10. CONSOLIDATION AND INVENTORY CONTROL Utilizing a Suddath storage facility, or that of one of our worldwide commercial partners, reduces the need for on-site storage and allows for strategic kitting of materials based on facility areas or project phases. Our team proactively looks for concerns to prevent delivery of the wrong or damaged product. If damage or an incorrect order is found, Suddath will proactively take action to remedy the issue (this can include: notification of supplier, return to sender, photograph or other documentation of the order inconsistency or damage, and taking further steps to rectify). Above all, our focus is to keep the project running efficiently. l Two million square feet of Suddath warehouse l Inspection process at time of receipt space across the United States l All facilities equipped with video surveillance l United Van Lines partner storage locations l Climate controlled facilities available across North America l Delivery of product per pull list l Established worldwide network of commercial l Pick & pack services available storage partners l Customized Reporting l Racked, Floor and Containerized options l SAM Portable Storage Containers for on-site l Bar-coded Warehouse Management System use 16 Suddath Warehouse Locations Global Strategic Partner Locations Suddath Locations United Van Lines partner locations
  11. 11. INSTALLATION MANAGEMENT Our objective is to make the installation and construction processes for energy projects go as smoothly as possible. We can provide labor for unloading and unpacking at the project site. We notify the installer/contractor that materials are on site and supervise the process to ensure that they are entered into the system as installed. l Ability to provide a reliable pool of labor l Coordination with the Installer/Contractor to schedule and expedite turnover l Transitional sign-offs are used when turning over to installer/contractor in case of damage l Supervision of rigging if required for project l Complete building protection mandatory l Removal of packaging material from site and recycling l Punch list executed by phase l Rigorous safety guidelines for on-site staff On-Site Storage Management Although we utilize off-site consolidation points, most projects will require some form of on-site storage. We can manage an existing facility or help set up a temporary one for this purpose. If required, Suddath’s SAM (Store-And-Move) division can provide portable storage containers that offer easily transportable interim storage solutions.
  12. 12. WHAT MAKES SUDDATH DIFFERENT? Project Management l On-site Project Manager l On-site Project Coordinator l Advanced IT systems unique to Suddath l Experience on projects across the world Sustainability & Green Initiatives We can help you to reduce the carbon footprint of your project by consolidating shipments, using recyclable and reusable packaging, and disposing of packaging in an environmentally friendly way. Furthermore, when possible, we can arrange for direct shipments from the supplier to the project site; this will cut down on costs as well as reduce the emissions associated with additional transportation. A single-source logistics provider is better suited to measuring performance metrics for a project’s green initiatives by providing aggregate information and data on the logistics process. Project Focused Reporting: l Budgetary Reports - cost of shipping, cost of consolidation, cost of specific taxes l Real-time inventory reports l Variance Report - percent of product delivered on-time vs. late deliveries l Variance from Schedule Report - showing actual vs. proposed installation schedule l VE (value engineered) Logistics Report - showing financial savings while maintaining quality vs. traditional industry logistics Suddath Key Competitive Advantages l Comprehensive global logistics services l Single-source accountability l Nationwide infrastructure l Established worldwide network of agents and commercial partners l 90 years of experience l Financial strength
