As a value-added service to our customers, Southern Packaging is ready to support your inventory management initiatives by offering flexible inventory stocking arrangements.

VMI Benefits:

  • Just-In-Time Product Delivery - Manufacturing lead times on most bulk packaging items are 4-16 weeks. Distributor warehouse facilities serve as local fulfillment points to provide just-in-time delivery. Vendor managed inventory programs allow customers to receive their packaging when they need it and at the right level.
  • Supply Chain Certainty – Unpredictable manufacturing lead times are eliminated when product is on the warehouse floor, available for immediate delivery. VMI programs all suppliers to dynamically adjust inventories in response to customer demands.
  • Low Unit Costs – Manufacturers produce in significant volumes with high minimum order quantities. Often customers do not require large quantities of high-quality packaging. Packaging distributors aggregate the smaller volume requirements of these accounts to meet the high production hurdles set by large manufacturers.
  • Cash Flow Management – VMI programs are effectively vendor financed inventory. Invoicing is held until the product delivers to the customer’s door. This provides for smoothing of expenditures throughout the year.
