In a delicate period like the one we are experiencing, for some companies satisfy their customers in the slightest detail is essential to preserve the results obtained over the years and not to face staff cuts, reductions in sales, etc.
A problem that businesses have to face is definitely space. The production and stock of goods can often be a good choice in order to make it always available to the buyer. Clearly, to store the material they need space, often used exclusively for that purpose.
The most common solution is to rent or buy a secondary warehouse. A sort of detached site where you can store the available material available for sale.
There is, however, another possibility: entrust the goods to a logistics warehouse.
Let’s see the benefits that this choice entails.
We start from stock costs. The cost of renting or buying a warehouse is a permanent cost.
In logistic warehouses happens the opposite: the customer always pays the space he actually uses. Rates are then constantly updated based on the quantity of goods present.
Logistics warehouse rental includes not only space but also handling of goods. Unlike a secondary office that requires the obligation of hiring staff and purchasing equipment for moving, loading/unloading and storage of the material, the logistic warehouse avoid this. The staff at your disposal will take care of everything with the necessary skills and equipment.
Checking the status of the material from your office or from you smartphone. The logistic partner is able to provide a personal web page where you can control the status of your goods.
Thanks to barcode technology, you can monitor the stock of real-time material, create sales orders or transfers directly from the online platform.
