The distribution of your products is not a problem for us. Another asset we put at your disposal is our strategically located warehouse in Camporosso, Italy.
Input and Output Management
Shelves and references allow us to take care of the entry and exit of your goods (input and output).
We establish the level of your stock, which you can consult on the spreadsheet. Indeed, it represents the state of your inventory and can be consulted live.
Preparation of commands
We need you to send us all the orders on a spreadsheet or by e-mail in Excel/CSV format (1 line = 1 order) with below necessary information:
Once the command is sent, we take care (if needed) of consolidation (gathering products of several suppliers).
Kindly note :
- If you send us orders before 8:30 a.m. (Italy time) : your orders will be prepared the same day.
- If you send us orders after 8:30 a.m. (Italy time): your orders will be prepared the next day.
After many years of dealing with Asiatic suppliers, forced to realize that they often do not package your products properly. They wrap altogether. This will affect your product's safety as well as your image. Let us handle this problem for you.
Every order will be properly, carefully, repackaged. This step is included in the price of input/output management for maximum efficiency.
Important note :
- We have boxes and envelopes for you. If not, you can take care of them yourself. It's your choice.
- Envelopes can reduce shipping costs.
