4 Ways to Optimise a Startup Business Supply Chain

by Nancy Whitman • 2020-01-01

Meet your stock quotas

Make sure that you are meeting your stock requirements. Something that you might be wondering about and for many the most difficult part of the business. You don't want to have too much stock, but you also don't want to have not enough stock.

The key here is to start small. Don't get too much stock that you can't sell. Especially, if you have stock that has a sell by date. But, you also want to make sure that you always have inventory available for orders that are coming in.

International and domestic transport

This is the one thing that you need to get organized as well. You need to make sure that you have global and local transportation in order. Meaning that if you need to ship internationally, that transportation internationally is searched, chosen and paid for. If packages are late, you will not have happy clients and customers.

There is some global transportation that is less reliable than others. And, you need to make sure that you are choosing a service that you can trust and can rely on to deliver goods on time. With the local transportation, it is a bit easier to choose one that will be reliable, but you still need to do your homework to find one that you can trust and that is worth the money you are paying for the transportation and shipment.

Make use of technology for tracking stock in the warehouse

Another important thing to consider to perfect your supply chain when you start your business is to make sure that you are making use of the best technology for tracking stock in the warehouse. where is to make sure that you always know how much stock you have, and where the stock is.

The last thing that you want is to struggle to find an item when you need to ship it to a client. Or, when you want to know if you should order more stock, and you can't see how much you still have left in the warehouse (an issue that affects both domestic and offshore warehousing. With using the right tools and technology, it will be easier to find out exactly how much stock you have, and where to find it.
