6 Best Practices to Win with Consigned Inventory

6 Best Practices to Win with Consigned Inventory

Forward-thinking distributors are using consignment inventory to ensure their top customers are stocked with the inventory they need – when they need it.

Consigned inventory is stocked and managed at a customer site such as a warehouse, stockroom or jobsite instead of a distributor’s own warehouse, and the distributor does not take payment for it until it is pulled from stock at the customer site.

For distributors, consigned inventory can be a profitable strategy when coupled with the right technology for tracking usage. This is the type of partnership that distributors can initiate with their top income-generating customers. It can be a critical tool in their arsenal to retain and grow business with these customers.
