Expediting Consulting Services

We assure that capital equipment arrives at the appointed date in the agreed quality at the agreed location to meet the project objectives.

Expediting Consulting Services

Our multitasking Expediting Services team members navigate between and within purchasing project management and the manufacturer/fabricator to secure the quality and timely delivery of your capital equipment. Our Expeditors support on-time delivery of major equipment and critical path items.


Our external expediter oversees the progress of manufacturing at the supplier concerning quality, packing, conformity with standards and set timelines.


Expediting is especially needed in large scale or complex projects because a delay caused by late delivery or inferior quality creates undue costs resulting from construction and commissioning delay or worse yet performance failure. Our expeditors know that ethics is key to this critical role. They demonstrate honesty, integrity, and professionalism in all communications, actions and decisions and most of all attention to detail.

Key Benefits of Expediting:

 

A timely and effective expediting service helps to ensure that:

 

 

  • Procured equipment is manufactured and delivered on – or ahead of – schedule.
  • Delays in the supply chain are minimized.
  • Where a delay has occurred, our client is notified in real time and a contingency plan can immediately be put in place to minimize its potential impact on the client and possible delays and penalties in construction.
  • Cost efficiencies are achieved through reduced labor costs and on-time start up.
  • Expediting services are of particular benefit for critical equipment and new suppliers in the supply chain.

 

Expediting can be introduced at any stage of a Project but is best undertaken as a continuous process starting when an order is placed.

 

 

Stages of Capital Projects:

 

  • Documentation submittals
  • Machining
  • Fabrication
  • Assembly
  • Corrective Action work
  • Material deficit
  • Failure on test or inspection
  • Shipment and packing
  • Submission of documentation inclusive of all sub-vendors

Our Expediting capabilities include:

  • Helping ensure that our client’s equipment arrives on or before the agreed contractual delivery date.
  • Incorporate our client’s quality surveillance needs with real time expediting.

Expediting services deliver value by eliminating costly delays or “off-specification” capital equipment. The expeditor is always proactively looking out for the best interests of the PM and Owner. We verify the quality, correctness and completeness of work throughout all stages of substation and transmission construction.

“As an element to an existing contract with the local utility company, our Company was instructed to create a Quality (QA/QC) Plan which we did not have in place at that time. I chose Storti Consulting because they were highly recommended by other companies in the industry. In just a few months, our Quality Plan was designed to meet the requirements of our Utility Contract for all applicable policies, procedures, and standards. In the same time frame, it was also presented, approved and implemented, by the utility company. Our Storti QA/QC plan was designed to be multifunctional. It can be adapted to other areas of our business. By having this plan already in place, our company has the opportunity to pursue and acquire more business opportunities. Storti Consulting doesn’t stop there! They are always available to assist with any needs that we have for our QA/QC plan. The utility company, with whom we are affiliated, audits the Quality Plan bi-annually to adjust, modify, and make additions to it. Storti is available throughout the year to consult and revise the plan as needed, ensuring us an up to date QA/QC Plan. Thank you, Storti Consulting for all you do for our Company and the great plan that you designed for us.”

“Crall products contacted Storti Quality Consulting for initial program building and certification of the very rigid process for API Q1 compliance and API monogram system. Storti Quality Consulting has been the most thorough and competent consultant Crall Products Co. has ever used. Everything provided to us including the education of compliance to our employees was superior in every aspect. On initial certification the majority of applicants do not receive certification. We at Crall Products Co. not only passed our initial inspection, there were no recommendations or concerns from the auditor. Every year since the initial certification we have passed with superior marks. Storti Quality Consulting will assure your company that it is in compliance with which ever program you wish to be certified to, and give you the knowledge to function on a daily basis. Storti Consulting is also forward looking so as to be prepared for the future”.

Vice President, Crall Products Co.

“Keeping up with a Quality Assurance / Quality Control Program was a daunting task for us. We had a program in place early on because we “had” to have one. Once we decided that a Quality Program is not just an “on the shelf” dust collector, we wanted to develop a program that reflects all the best practices for our industry. We didn’t know where to begin or what questions to ask, then Storti Quality Consulting, Inc. stepped up to the plate and helped us develop a true QMS program that helps our company to continually excel in what we do and to show our customers that we are on the leading edge of our industry. Ralph has put together a team of experts that could truly help any company accomplish what they need to do to be successful. Thank you Ralph and your entire team for helping ULS get to where we need to be”.
