A solution for every aspect of distribution

Supply Chain is the now-established role in product businesses responsible for procurement, warehousing (increasingly done through third party logistics (3PL)), transport and international trade.

What you need to manage the Supply Chain:

  • a procurement agreement or supply terms that address the numerous issues that arise, issues learnt only by experience – a failure to deal with any one of these issues or a failure to deal with them clearly could cost you dearly – in terms of:

    • OOS (out of stock) situations and lost sales

    • Defective product that you cannot recover on

  • A 3PL Agreement that deals with that relationship where a third party operator has your product and dispatching it for you

  • Guidance on transport issues, an industry which habitually accepts no liability

  • Knowledge of the Incoterms if trading internationally

  • Management of risk and title so that the loss or destruction of your product is covered by insurance maintained by the right party

“I received almost immediate and personalised acknowledgement of my request, with clarifying questions - noting this was a complex matter with many terms revisions and a new mechanism for price movement. I answered those questions and within less than 24 hours, had a draft deed of variance in hand for consideration. The draft was excellent, timely and allowed me to quickly close on a very favourable result for our business. With thanks to the team at MIA.”
