Our Distribution Center is so flexible it’s a little freaky.
Distribution needs come in all shapes and forms. But whatever configuration you need, we do everything we can to exceed your expectations. Even if we have to bend over backward to do it.
As a centralized or regional foundation of your supply network, we ship directly to wholesalers, retailers, and consumers. That means doing everything right the first time: delivering the correct products, in the correct quantities, to the correct destinations, within the expected time, at a competitive price.
To accomplish that we make use of appropriate technology — computerized tracking, digital scanning, real-time information and more. Jobs that would tie up other companies in knots we can handle with effortless balance and graceful strength.
In the ‘50s and ‘60s, it was common to see “Allow six to eight weeks for delivery” on every offer. What were they thinking? Today, response time is measured in hours, not days nor weeks.
What’s on the horizon? Just look at the trend. In a few decades, distribution times have gone from spans measured by the calendar to spans measured by the clock. Coming up: response times measured by the minute.
It’s a matter of staying competitive and relevant in a world that is rapidly evolving from people leaving home to shop, to simply ordering online.
Once again, WhiteStar is leading the way up. We do it by continually pushing toward better organization because being well organized is the key to faster response times and to achieving the best efficiencies.
Every company should have a nimble distribution strategy and if you don’t have one, we’ll help you work it out. When it comes to distribution, there are as many variations in design as there are companies. Specialization is really the core of WhiteStar’s operation as a distribution service center. By bringing our A-game, we free you up to focus on the most productive use of your time, selling your products and taking care of your customers.
In return, we provide real-time reports covering the distribution processes to document strategic progress. We also design scheduling around your needs to optimize the flow of containers, route times, packaging and repackaging, and more.
Let us help you get the kinks out your distribution network as the supple backbone of your supply chain system.
