Sometimes products need a “makeover” or alteration in order to be sold. For example, a company may have rising backorders due to real or perceived defects in merchandise. Dead inventory or overstocks may be piling up in the warehouse as a result of inaccurate sales forecasts. Products may have arrived with blemishes, imperfections or compliance issues. Perhaps component add-ons or replacements may be necessary to make a product floor-ready for sale.
If you’re a high-volume importer, retailer or distributor that needs to perform product alterations it’s likely that you may not be equipped with the right labor, resources or facility space to handle the job. Yet, when product alterations are required it’s imperative to undertake these projects quickly and cost-effectively to get product into the supply chain on-time, in-full and floor-ready for sale.
