Gaining Control Over Inventory Costs
Inventory Management and Just In Time Delivery
A manufacturer of gourmet Mexican popsicles and frozen desserts with multiple retail locations throughout the southwest, focused on expanding their footprint through franchises and company owned stores.
The company was dealing with multiple packaging vendors. In order to get a lower cost, they were buying more product than they needed. Excess, and similar inventory items were consuming valuable space and resources from day to day operations. The owners of the company wanted to be able to count on a reliable packaging supplier to handle all of their packaging needs so that they could spend time focused on growing their business.
