Ownership of consignment camps will only be transferred when the stock is used (issued or sold in the case of a transaction). Unused inventory in a warehouse can be returned to the supplier if it is standard products. For customer-specific items, product return agreements should be negotiated. One customer went from four pallet shelves containing products to just two shelves from one shelf, letting OGS create an individual storage program. Now, the question we are interested in. What about the bottom of transport and the 4PLs? 4PLs are ideal for front storage, as a 4PL is technically able to gain insight into the inventory balance sheets of many companies that are not necessarily part of the same ownership structure. Currently, very little is written about it. I am not aware of a 4PL that offers inventory transparency. If anyone knows of one, feel free to comment on this contribution. The storage of the shipment is often mentioned in the same articles as the logistics of spare parts. This is natural, as spare parts are often needed in a short period of time. However, some value-added services related to storage sites in advance have nothing to do with spare parts. For example, kitting is associated with service parts operations (i.e.

repair kits for automobiles, industrial equipment or aircraft). However, other value-added services, such as packaging and configuration, apply to both finished products and spare parts. Is there a professional opportunity to think about the number of source points affecting the case completion rate? For example, we plan to reduce our storage points for a volatile customer like Amazon to just 2 DC (East and West Coast) compared to our 6 regular regional DCs. Wondering if this consolidation of inventory variability and demand could be responsible for a predictable improvement in the CFR? Kanban is a signal in Japanese. A Kanban storage contract allows you to keep only enough stock to produce the products you will need in the near future. If you need more inventory, your suppliers deliver a new shipment. In general, KanBan storage contracts allow for weekly, even daily, deliveries as long as you have made appointments with your suppliers….
