Maintaining lubricants quality throughout the supply chain
Sep 28, 2018
Delivering lubricants is a complex process involving multiple levels of the supply chain. This means the customers, lubricant manufacturers, raw materials and component suppliers, intermediaries and various types of equipment, processes and activities must all be aligned in order to produce and deliver consistent products.
According to Michael Roe, STLE member and lubricants consultant, “the quality of lubricant handling is only as good as the training, knowledge and experience of each of the persons involved in every step of this chain.” In order to ensure end-to-end quality control, management and employees must use standard procedures while monitoring the effectiveness of the production and delivery process.
