Optimise Your Supply Chain With These Distribution Models
Posted on 17.10.2018
Are your inventory stocking locations in the ideal place to best serve your customers? Well, you don’t have to worry anymore. This article will tackle one of the most crucial parts of warehousing and distribution: coming up with new models for a more efficient supply chain and maintaining its efficiency. But there are a lot other things to consider and the primary salient point is the setup.
Distribution models can include a wide range of different setups, which can all be very useful when applied to the correct business or business model. There can be many reasons as to why a business may choose to adopt one distribution model over another, however the decision as to what type of distribution model is best for a business can take a back seat to what is the easiest one to set up initially. You don’t have to go all out otherwise you can lose more investments and transactions.
Amco Services is mandated in identifying the different types of distribution models that may suit your business, from there we can help you to implement that distribution model into your business. The main types of distribution models that can help you and perhaps implement are:
- Traditional Distribution
- Traditional Warehousing
- 3PL Models
- Bonded Warehousing
- Outsourcing of Distribution
- Outsourcing of Warehousing
- Controlling the Route to Market
- Online Retailing
These distribution methods require less material handling and inventory storage which leads to a lower average order fulfillment cost.
If you are in the process of looking into distribution models for your business and would like some advice on the different types that are available, Amco Services can help you to identify which distribution model may be best for your company. Keep in mind that some setups may look more efficient but are not necessarily applicable to your business. Make sure that you know your business framework wheel before deciding.
We can also assist you in implementing a distribution model, or align you with a partner who can provide the services that you require for a particular distribution model just in case you are not familiar in some processes.
