Too Much Inventory: How R&A Trucking Company Can Solve Your Surplus Inventory Issues
The supply chain rollercoaster continues into the new year. Last year, supply chain delays left shelves empty and caused headaches for the industry. This year introduces a different issue: surplus inventory. Why is there likely to be a surplus of stock this year? And how can R&A Trucking Company relieve your stress and help you maintain inventory levels?
What causes a surplus of inventory?
Snarled traffic at entry ports caused shipping and distribution delays throughout the 2021 holiday season. Retailers contracted private cargo ships to retrieve goods, but this didn’t mean that products arrived on time. When seasonal merchandise like fall and Christmas-themed decor comes in January or February, retailers can’t sell it, as it’s no longer in demand. This leads to an inventory surplus. What do you do with that extra inventory?
The effects of too much inventory
Retailers and logistics teams can manage excess inventory in several undesirable ways. When businesses mark down inventory that is no longer in demand, they lose profit. If inventory still doesn’t sell, it’s a total loss. Destroying merchandise contributes to unnecessary waste and is also a financial loss.
Ultimately, excess inventory impedes cash flow. If products aren’t selling, they’re sucking up money.
A better way to handle excess stock is to store the extra inventory until the next season when it will be in demand. But what is the best way for you to store your excess inventory? That’s where R&A Trucking Company comes in.
