NewStream’s Centrally Located Distribution Service

Location matters in distribution and logistics. That’s why we’ve strategically positioned our network in the middle of the US. From Missouri, we can easily ship anywhere within the continental US in 48 hours or less.

Saving time affects the budget requirements for your project as well as the punctuality demands of your customers, vendors, and distribution network. Since distribution costs are tied to distances of transport, it’s crucial that you align yourself with a distribution logistics company that can minimize transport expenses and get your products delivered fast.

 

Distribution Network Considerations in Supply-Chain Management

Whether you are trying to reduce costs or develop a distribution strategy for a new product, understanding distribution networks will better equip you to choose the right distribution partners. Distribution initiatives generally fall under two categories: establishing new customer channels and enhancing customer service. Distribution network design or redesign initiatives looking to address these two categories must consider three main components. Distribution, is the most obvious, but there are also inventory management and customers.

Executing a successful distribution strategy requires strategic coordination and accounting of all three. We know that there can be a high level of complexity when establishing a distribution management solution, and we know that creating an optimized process order flow across multiple channels requires particular industry insights. NewStream has the expertise in transportation, warehousing, and inventory management to optimize your distribution network. That’s why we are inviting you to contact our supply-chain distribution team to start a conversation about your unique distribution needs.

 

KPI Examples in Distribution Logistics

Measuring the current or future performance of your distribution efforts is crucial to your overall goals of cost containment and customer satisfaction. The top KPI measurements in supply-chain distribution are:

  • Order picking accuracy
  • Total volume of products
  • Cases picked per employee
  • Distribution cycle time
  • Distribution cost per unit

 

Choosing the Right Distribution Management Solution

Proximity savings can be a significant component of your partnership decision, but the quality of infrastructure should also be considered. NewStream has a massive, state-of-the-art facility and broad capabilities to store, handle, and transport large-volume and complex products.

Generally, companies seek out 3PL distributors for greater capacity to scale up and meet the demands of a changing environment. We can assist with geographical expansion by opening up additional warehouse facilities in strategic locations across the US.

Choosing a distribution center involves weighing several factors including:

  • Experience
  • Facility
  • Location
  • Budget
  • Capabilities
  • Capacity
  • Added value
  • Ability to scale

 

Along with our capabilities as a comprehensive supply chain management company, your distribution process can be seamlessly expanded to incorporate other services we offer including contract packaging and kitting, assembly and sub-assembly, warehousing and distribution, and vendor-managed inventory.
