Choosing the right distribution
and freight methods for your products is a key element of your supply
chain process. Several factors will influence your decision, including
cost, security and speed. Increasingly, a new model is being adopted
by successful businesses. With 'sell-source-ship', you buy as little
stock as possible. Instead, you source, ship and deliver a product
on the promise date determined when the order was placed.
Sell-source-ship is replacing the more traditional distribution
models. To date, distribution has centred more on the model of buy
the products - hold them in a warehouse - sell on as ordered. There
is now an emerging trend away from this model. With the new sell-source-ship
model, a distributor buys as little stock as possible, choosing
instead to quickly source, ship and deliver a product on the promise
date determined when the order was taken. With our services at Akoma,
we can help you move to take advantage of this new model.
Our services at Akoma are designed to help you move to take advantage
of this new model. We focus our services on delivery by road and
ship to efficiently move products to their point of delivery. When
necessary, we will use third-party vehicles. Delivery times will
vary with time of order and collection points, however, businesses
using our warehouse services can expect deliveries to be made either
the same day the order is placed or at the latest, the next day.
