The automotive part supply chain is growing and changing rapidly. From warehousing to fulfillment to transportation, this high velocity sector needs to be well managed from a distribution standpoint.
Aftermarket and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) offer products for anything one might need for any vehicle, so there is a proliferation of stock keeping units, or SKUs. This massive influx of data can pose serious supply chain challenges. These challenges stem from balancing inventory of high and low turnover parts to accurately delivering needed supplies to shops and customers. Utilizing a 3PL partner that has an optimized system to pick, pack and ship the right parts at the right time can significantly enhance your service department.
Meeting your customer’s and business’ expectations is a growing challenge.
