Consolidation & Deconsolidation
If your supply chain is global, you are aware of the complexities of managing inventory and shipments from multi-origin vendor relationships. As more businesses interact with global manufacturing economies, getting international freight to the right place at the right time, in good condition, has become a major logistics challenge.
The Advance Group can optimize the flow of your goods by consolidating disparate shipments into close-proximity storage and breaking them back down into perfectly-timed individual deliveries, achieving greater efficiency and economy for your business. Deconsolidation becomes a crucial component of moving cargo between international and domestic transportation modes.
Consolidation through a trusted partner like The Advance Group also provides valuable risk mitigation and inventory management benefits. We can aggregate orders from multiple vendors into more efficient transportation schemes—so that the contents of your storage containers match your distribution patterns. This also lets us address potential shortages or damages before they arise—allowing you to purchase the optimal amount of inventory at the optimal time.
