Fairchild Semiconductor has opened a regional fulfilment center in the Suzhou Logistics Center (SLC) in Souzhou, China.

The free trade zone logistics center provides the capability to meet the requirements of China customs, allowing direct shipments from Fairchild to China-based customers. The regional fulfilment center provides a more environmentally friendly and energy efficient supply chain by reducing total transportation fuel requirements that will result in shorter cycle times.

"This new logistic center marks the beginning of an exceptional opportunity for Fairchild. We're able to provide our customers with better, faster and improved fulfilment services. We're now shipping our products from our facilities in China, directly to local customers, without exporting them and then shipping them back," said Robin Goodwin, Fairchild's senior VP, supply chain management.

"We're pleased to have a supplier of Fairchild's caliber as one of the first semiconductor companies to partner with us on this important logistic center," said Louis Lu, deputy director of Suzhou Industrial Park Economic & Trade Development Bureau and general manager of the SLC. "Streamlining the supply chain, especially for Chinese companies, provides the flexibility and customer service they need to compete in the global marketplace."

Fairchild's 1,000m?, fully bonded warehouse with temperature and humidity control segregates inventory and transactions as well as activities and shipments and material from Fairchild's manufacturing facility for delivery to local customers in China, and throughout the world. In addition to managing delivery of products from Fairchild's direct facilities, the company can also manage the subcontractor activities; products built by local companies can also be shipped directly to local and worldwide customers through the new fulfilment center.
