In a highly competitive marketplace, wholesale and
distribution companies have little room to manoeuvre. To be successful they
must differentiate themselves by excelling at customer service and keeping
prices competitive. Excelling at customer service involves a number of factors.
Selecting the right product range is obviously crucial. But, beyond this,
factors such as avoiding stock-outs, fast delivery, effective returns handling
and proactive complaint handling are vital.
Competition on price is high and margins are continually
under pressure. Consequently wholesalers and distributors must be constantly
looking to optimise their stock holding and make their internal processes, from
sales to shipping, purchasing to warehouse management, as streamlined and
effective as possible.
