About Steve Standridge

In February 1997, Steve Standridge embarked on what he assumed would be a “90-day gig” with Emery Worldwide in Overland Park, KS. That gig developed into an Automotive Supervisor position servicing Automotive Big 3 OEMs, and then into an onsite Business Development position at Mercedes Benz in Vance, AL. While at Mercedes Benz, Steve came up with the idea for his own company, Standridge Logistics & Consulting LLC.

Case Studies

Air Cargo

Urgent Situation: Potential OEM shutdown.

 

Reason: Tier 1 supplier having production issues and needed transportation assistance for an unspecified period of time.

 

The Standridge Solution: Contacted the appropriate Tier 1 decision maker and coordinated ground transportation from Mexico. Also coordinated timing of Tier 1 component supply with aircraft charter service and airport cargo operations to U.S. pickup location 24-hours a day as long as needed. Provided continuous communications between Standridge, Tier 1, OEM, air charter company, airport cargo operations and ground delivery as long as needed.

 

Results: OEM had NO interrupted operations during the 21-day situation.

Air Shipment Intervention

Urgent Situation: Assembly line shutdown.

 

Reason: International air shipment of critical components arriving in another state with no plans for a direct trucking link to final destination. (The client’s customs broker had not scheduled ground transportation and did not have the resources available to meet the resulting tight schedule requirements).

 

The Standridge Solution: Located reliable transportation that could recover the shipment and deliver direct over 400 miles away. Worked with customs broker to obtain clearance, release and delivery order while processing all documents and routing hard copies to driver for pickup. Implemented and carried out ongoing communications between Standridge, the client, customs broker, airline cargo office and the truck driver.

 

Results: Shutdown avoided. Critical cargo delivered on time.

Ocean Shipping Intervention

Urgent Situation: Assembly line shutdown at two locations.

 

Reason: Railroad could not deliver two ocean containers on day needed.

 

The Standridge Solution: Locate two available dray trucks in less than two hours, prepare paperwork needed to get containers released from rail head, established and maintained ongoing communications between multiple parties: Standridge, the client, the rail head, broker and trucking company.

 

Results: No Loss time. Materials originally need on Monday was offloaded at manufacturer’s location Saturday at 2300 hours CST.

Dedicated Trucking Intervention

Urgent Situation: Production Delays.

 

Reason: Slow return of dunnage (received on an every 24-hour basis).

 

The Standridge Solution: Negotiated with dedicated truck carrier to open a facility closer to the manufacturer.

 

Results:

  • $30,000 annual cost savings on dedicated lane
  • Dunnage returns went from 24-hours to six
  • Driver dead time decreased by 50%
  • 80% reduction in expedited trucks for lane
