The Sporting Goods industry is constantly evolving. As a sporting goods distributor, your challenges may involve:
Planning and forecasting to ensure enough inventory to meet demand, without holding too many products that have to be significantly marked down as the season ends and a new cycle of innovation brings additional products to market.
Maintaining the right inventory levels as omni-channel shoppers drive demand for faster delivery times and a seamless experience across channels.
Growing expectations for value-added services and compliance with strict labeling requirements that result in chargebacks if not managed properly.
Full visibility to inventory wherever it is in the supply chain is essential for wholesalers/distributors, retailers and brand owners in this space.
Companies that make distribution a competitive advantage are finding that requires technology, flexibility and a strategic partner who understands the unique requirements and complexities of sporting goods distribution. Fortna can help.
