Distributor Challenges

DistributorWith the rise of regional market competition, and increasing fuel and operating costs, distributors are faced with decreasing profit margins in order to remain competitive. As end-users saw the benefits of outsourcing delivery and warehousing functions, the number of distributors have risen offering an ever increasing number of services. The increasing numbers of distributors inevitably has led to increased competition between these firms.

How can distribution companies protect and grow their business? By focusing the battleground on price, product selection, sales, and supply chain responsiveness. Distributors are being forced to become more leaner and more efficient in their processes, better procurement of operating supplies and supply products they offer; and they must do so continuously to remain competitive.

Distributors have to accomplish all of this with cost controls to operate within a budget. Finding a strong source of supply for your supply products and operating supplies is imperative.

Joshen's Distributor Solutions

Joshen's supply product and service solutions generate a rapid improvement to your operations budget; as well as assisting you in protecting your business with your customers. Joshen’s Re-distribution program offers many advantages to the distributors that we service:

● Distributors in need of key products are more easily able to supply a complete-line to their customers with Joshen’s ability to provide in excess of 20,000 sku’s; protecting your business from other distributors
● Joshen provides the ability to quickly acquire special order items due to our purchasing frequency from manufacturers
● Joshen’s purchasing economies of scale make it possible for our partnering distributors to be priced competitive against other distributors that may be buying on a direct manufacturer basis
● By not having to meet manufacturers’ minimum order quantities, our distribution customers realize soft-cost savings in the form of less cash flow tied to inventory levels; avoiding the need to stock many months of inventory creating increased turns, while still retaining competitive market level pricing
● Savings is also realized by using Joshen as a sole source of supply; creating efficiencies for our distributors in purchasing, receiving, and accounting functions

Joshen literally becomes an extension of the operation of our partnering distributors; offering services that can allow your business to outsource part of your supply chain management functions. We have encountered many different distribution customer challenges, whether supply product related or inventory maintenance, and have been able to implement complete supply chain solutions for our distribution customers.

Joshen currently services hundreds of distributors across the United States; through warehouse replenishment and drop shipment programs. With our high fill rates and fast delivery times, competitive pricing, and services to grow your business, it's no surprise why distributors and wholesalers are turning to Joshen to be their one-stop source of supply.
