It is time for manufacturers to be closer to retail customers

Retailers continually push consumer goods manufacturers for better fill rates and quick turnarounds on product delivery.

Product storage and warehousing presents numerous problems that must be overcome by Canadian consumer goods companies. These problems include the vast distance between major urban centers in Canada and fluctuating market demands as the seasons change. To meet these challenges, more and more Canadian companies are turning to third-party logistics (3PL) warehousing solutions.

Late deliveries and lower fill rates often result in fines from retailers. Most fines can be avoided by sourcing a 3PL provider. 3PL providers will ensure your company’s compliance with your retailer’s requirements. FMi Logistics can provide you with numerous advantages over going it alone.

Central Location

Many of the major retailers’ primary distribution centers are in Western Canada. Most are in Calgary. So is FMi Logistics. We can help you meet the challenge of distance between cities in Canada.

Seasonal Scalability

FMi Logistics also offers the additional advantage of seasonal scalability. Many businesses boom during part of the year. Other times of the year orders just trickle in. The seasonal shift over Christmas, spring and summer, or back to school can affect consumer goods producers. FMi Logistics can stretch our capacity to match your spikes in product demand.

Multi-Client Warehousing

If you invest in your own warehouse space you may find that you have too little or too much warehouse space depending on the time of the year. FMi has a strong presence in Western Canada. We also have extensive resources, flexible services, and team of trained and knowledgeable experts with the capacity to meet your business needs. Multi-client warehousing has many advantages including a flexible space and flexible labour concept. FMi provides all our clients with the most reliable warehousing services.

If you’re looking for a partner that treats your business needs as their own, contact FMi Logistics today.
