What is Shared Distribution?

Shared distribution, is what suits the business model best when discussing a general term for the way of workflow that our systems provide.

Imagine Amazon Prime -> You stock your inventory at their warehouse, for fulfilling your own orders to an already established network. For providing the sale and infrastructure, Amazon takes a fee from the sales which is deducted from your revenue. It’s a solid model, and everyone knows that Amazon is one of (if not) the strongest players on the market, as customers seeks convenience.

A Shared Distribution Center, can have some resemblance to the above mentioned model. If you are a supplier, with the need of an EU located warehouse, we are able to provide you with the tools necessary for distributing it via our 3PL Services. BUT, even better, we are able to provide our network of established and connected shops (dropshipping, dedicated shops or even brick and motar) with YOUR products without a traditional sale.

What about numbers?

Sharing your inventory in an innovative way, will give you increased profit, as a supplier as you cut out the traditional distributor, from the supply-chain.

If a product, from your (suppliers) inventory, is sold (distributed) through our network, the system will keep track on whom of our connected retailers is using the inventory to fulfill their orders.

Everything is flowing through Approved Companies, in an elegant and transparrent way, which ensures you are getting paid. To meet the requirement from our Retailers, the owner of the products (supplier) will specify 4 levels of pricing for each SKU that is hosted in our warehouse. Weekly, a report will be generated for the sales overview to each of our retailers. This report, will serve as an foundation for billing Approved Companies, for the total product usage. In return, we take a commission for providing the sales, just as Amazon, but cheaper.

Benefits?
