Wholesale Distribution

Globalization has caused a paradigm shift in supply chain management. As companies look to become more competitive and cost efficient, many are choosing to set up manufacturing operations in low cost countries (LCC?s) overseas. Many of these traditional manufacturing companies are now running wholesale distribution operations instead. Lead times that used to be in days or weeks have now shifted to several months. It becomes crucial to plan the right amount of inventory that mirrors customer demand. Too much inventory and you can severely cripple your warehousing operations, too little inventory and you can lose substantial market share. The Avercast is the necessary piece to keep your supply chain running efficiently.
