Service level driven wholesalers

Availability is everything for the wholesale industry. However, given the risk of obsolescence and the cost of holding stock, excess stock that comes as a result of poorly aligned service levels will have a hugely adverse impact on a wholesalers profit margins. Simultaniously, it unnecessarily ties up valuable working capital. As a result, it’s vital that wholesalers focus their investment where it is required most.
