For product-based businesses, one of the most important and intricate tasks that must occur on a day-to-day basis is that of inventory control. This process encompasses nearly all aspects of logistics, from the initial shipping of inventory from a supplier, through storage and warehousing, and finally to distribution to retail establishments or directly to the consumer. Within this process, there are numerous other smaller aspects of the process that must be completed in order to maintain a seamless transference of products from the point of origin to the point of consumption.
Although many large brands and retailers have an intricate system in place to manage their inventory, as well as numerous employees and extensive protocols, there are times when it makes more sense to have an external company manage most or all aspects of this process. Doing so saves on the expenses of employee salaries plus benefits, the set up and maintenance of intricate processes, and the space needed to warehouse the inventory before it is sent to its final destination.
Companies like GFD Courier can handle any aspect of the inventory control process that a company needs, or can handle the entire process from start to finish. This is true whether the company is large or small and whether there is a limited number of products that require management or a large number of SKUs.
