Retailers, banks, and chain restaurants spend about $2 billion per year on logistics to support new store openings, remodeling and promotional activities. Most companies manage the logistics support for openings and remodels separately from their traditional merchandise supply chain.
Problem is, these projects by nature tend to occur as intense spikes over and above normal business activities. Outsourcing the displays, racking, and fixtures that go into a store through a 3PL partner that offers specialized services can keep you on track and offer cross-supply chain visibility.
First Logistics offers you a facility network that can flex up or down as needed for short-term use and also provides supply chain specialized services such as kitting and light assembly. As a result, you can save money, manage more proactively, and reduce waste.
Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG)
CPG companies know that managing their supply chain efficiently will earn the trust and business of their customers. That’s why for many of them, First Logistics is their solution partner for all types of retail fulfillment. By warehousing with us, you pay only for the space and services you need, which means you can manage your volume surges in a cost-appropriate way.
