Posted by Ascent Global Logistics on Jul 10, 2018 1:30:07 PM

Is Walmart’s On Time In Full (OTIF) program causing you headaches? In case you missed it, the program now requires most suppliers to deliver within a two-day delivery window. By partnering with an authorized Walmart consolidator such as Prime Distribution Services, An Ascent Global Logistics Company, your company can not only achieve OTIF compliance, but also improve your supply chain efficiency, saving your business time and money.

Many Walmart and Sam's Club suppliers have partnered with a Retail Consolidation company to achieve supply chain success. Here are three ways Prime Distribution Services' consolidation solutions helps suppliers:

 1. Strategic Nationwide Warehouse Network

Our team develops customized solutions based on customer needs, whether you need to store inventory in one warehouse or multiple warehouses. Placing inventory across a strategic network can reduce lead times and further improve on-time reliability. Our five strategically placed AIB-certified warehouses ensure your product is located near a Walmart Regional Distribution Center.

Our facilities are intentionally located at key points in major shipping lanes from coast to coast, enabling us to meet the needs of customers located anywhere, both domestic and import. This allows Prime to help suppliers comply with retailer delivery requirements and reduce freight costs. We can create customized retail supply chain solutions for any company regardless of size or geographical location.
