As suppliers grow their businesses, logistics becomes a major concern. As Walmart tightens the reins on suppliers, it becomes even more important to control costs and keep products on the shelves. Having products already in place around the country helps suppliers maintain a good relationship with Walmart and other retailers. It also makes it easier for suppliers to work together in developing in-store promotions that pair different products together.
Finding the Right Logistics Partner
For many supplier businesses, these demands require partnering with a logistics specialist to assist with supply chain management. It also means that the third party logistics firm has to be able to keep up with its client’s expanding businesses. It isn’t enough to have one warehouse in one location. Consumers want their products when they want them, so on shelf availability and quick e-commerce delivery times are crucial.
