As a wholesaler, you’re dealing with large volumes of stock. However, not all wholesalers understand how to effectively manage their inventory, which often results in too much or too little stock. You’ll want to avoid overstocking and running out of stock as much as possible, as this affects costs and revenue.
Supply chain management involves controlling the upstream and downstream flow of materials and finances from sourcing to manufacturing and distributing, to retailing and finally into the hands of the end consumer. Efficient supply chain management also ensures that a company maintains a constant flow of fresh products at an optimal level that matches customer demand while keeping inventory levels at a minimum to minimize carrying costs.
