Wholesale and Distribution companies rely on Boyum solutions to increase inventory visibility, get traceability and optimize their logistic processes. Here are some of the most familiar challenges we see in the Wholesale and Distribution Industry:
Limited inventory visibility
Wholesale and distribution companies must have complete visibility of the movement of inbound, internal, and outbound goods and avoid stock-outs, stock losses, etc. But for many, the level of stock visibility means inventory management is not easy.
Product authenticity and traceability
Transparent and efficient traceability based on batch and serialized numbers information will ensure you can identify products throughout the supply chain and recall products and identify counterfeit products fast.
No alignment of logistics processes
Knowing, storing, picking, packing, and delivering what you have in inventory in the fastest possible way is challenging. It requires a strict alignment of inbound, internal, and outbound logistic processes.
No integration with eCommerce
Providing an efficient connection with e-commerce platforms and having an up-to-date inventory status will result in being able to sell a product or not.
Disjointed system and manual processes
With data in multiple locations, paper forms are consuming your employees' time and are prone to errors. An accurate warehouse operation is impossible.
Limited visibility into the supply chain
No visibility means you cannot make timely purchasing and replenishing inventory decisions to reduce out-of-stocks while simultaneously reducing inventory.

Simplify Your Inventory Management

The business can analyze the data to schedule raw materials or goods optimally, eliminate stock-out situations and excessive inventory.
Quality, Visibility, and Traceability
Boyum solutions assign a unique individual product identification to protect the supply chain against falsification or defections, unsafe or counterfeit products. It also ensures product and consumer safety.
A standardized warehouse management system registers all inbound, internal, and outbound logistics movements of products, thus ensuring full traceability.
Optimizing logistic processes
Boyum Solutions provides full GS1 support to quickly identify products and logistic units throughout your inbound, internal, and outbound logistics processes.
Unambiguous identification of logistic units and products is an absolute necessity in a wholesale or distribution company's operation. Applying GS1 standards and using data carrier technologies such as 1 or 2-dimensional barcodes like GS1-128, Data Matrix, QR codes, or EPC (electronic product codification - commonly known as RFID) ensure this.
Integration with e-commerce
Integrating wholesale eCommerce with an ERP system and an inventory management solution provides the ability to synchronize information between systems and enables them to talk to each other.
Data integration and synchronization will enable wholesale businesses to streamline day-to-day operations by eradicating repetitive bi-directional data entry.
Streamlining manual administration tasks that surround back-office activities not only improves speed and data accuracy.
