Semiconductor logistics transport story

The mission

A manufacturer of semiconductor devices (chips and wafers) based in Ireland faces a highly critical situation: Failure of a machine used in the cleanroom production causes the automated production line to come to a full stop. A spare part is urgently needed! But the item is not on stock – and only a supplier in Japan can manufacture the piece. The spare part has to be transported from Japan to Ireland as quickly as possible.
