At ARCA, we pride ourselves on our transparency in reverse logistics. Why is transparency important? Read the article below to learn more.
The Surplus Problem
Having a surplus of inventory can leave you in a less than ideal situation. You’ll need to have a plan in place to get rid of those items, but also make sure you’re getting your money’s worth.
One common problem we find with companies who have a surplus problem is, they never know if they’re getting the right price for the items they have, and they may not have the resources to figure it out on their own.
Finding a Customer
This directly leads into the second issue: who do you have who will buy your surplus? If you don’t already have an existing relationship with someone, you need to establish one.
Whoever has been tasked with the job may resort to online searches, which aren’t always reliable. You might end up finding someone who says they’re interested in purchasing your items, but they may not be the best at communicating, or the plan falls through.
Protecting Your Supply Chain
When you finally do create a relationship, have you considered how you are going to protect your supply chain?
Even after finding someone to pay you for your items, and you’ve made sure your supply chain is protected, what do you do with the rest of your assets that they don’t want? You need to have a plan in place to get rid of everything you’re looking to part with.
Sounds daunting, doesn’t it?
The Importance of Transparency
The key to a seamless process is transparency. The last thing you want is to accept an offer that doesn’t reflect the value of your assets, or not have knowledge of the actual worth of your assets.
Having to resort to random online articles as your only source of information is unproductive. If you’re running into problems with your reverse logistics, you’ll need a secret weapon to get you on the right track. ARCA can get you to where you need to be.
ARCA Industries embraces transparency. We guide you through the entire process and won’t drop any surprises. Instead of piecemealing the process, we can be your one-stop-shop.
If you want a company that can appraise, process, store, and sell your assets, we’d love to hear from you.
