Warehousing/Inventory Management/Distribution Services
Eastern Door Warehouse facilities are located in Toronto, Vancouver, Buffalo and Los Angeles metro areas, totaling more than 1.2 million sf. The capability of our operations will provide the flexibility your supply chain or project requires to decrease overhead and run efficiently.
Inventory Management is at the item (SKU) level. It is our business to process and ship all of your orders as fast as possible. Serialized, premium merchandise, mixed SKU (line item) pallets are welcome and are our primary shipment types. A single inventory location can become more complex as your company adds items (SKUs-stock keeping units) or sales channels. Eastern Door provides “live” views of the Eastern Door warehouse/inventory management system at all times, providing you with the control needed to manage your business. Multiple locations creates new decisions and demands for your business.
- Inventory allocation for each location
- Order processing decisions "From which location should we order?"
Eastern Door can provide analysis of past or expected sales by item (SKU) or help with your analysis to determine rational inventory allocation levels for each location.
By exporting order information from your IT (computer) system into ours, redundant order processing tasks can be eliminated; resulting in reduced order process time and a reduction in order entry errors. Formal and informal EDI and XML communications offers seamless integration between our organizations.
Eastern Door facilities are used for inventory storage, Cross Dock Distribution Services, quality control, warranty/repair and reverse logistics (product return management) functions. Project assembly and special handling is provided as required.
Each Eastern Door client has a unique distribution model. Some have similar models, but no two are alike. The services provided by Eastern Door to fulfill each customer’s model are tailored and documented as a set of specific operating procedures. As your needs and requirements change, Eastern Door updates and modifies your account’s specific operating procedures.
