Spot Buys & Sourcing


The Sourcing Dilemma

With widespread supply chain disruption, retailers have an opportunity to find new suppliers for essential goods; however, it is not a simple process to find the right partners.

Our team of expert spot buyers identifies and vets opportunities across a number of categories to help retailers take advantage of opportunities to augment their revenue and provide their customers what they need with a trusted wholesaler/distributor.

Continued Shortages

It's been more than three years since the start of the pandemic stalled the economy, yet retailers are still struggling with out of stocks due to ongoing supply chain gaps.

Today's global supply chain is impacted by:

  • Production Labor Shortages
  • Logistic Labor Shortages
  • Raw Materials Shortages
  • International Conflicts
  • COVID-19 Lockdowns Abroad
  • Natural Disasters
  • Cybersecurity Breaches
  • Trade Disputes

Expect more disruption soon. Peak container shipping season is around the corner. ​

We're all aware that the fourth quarter of every year is peak holiday shopping time, but the supply chain is preparing for the rush long before the fall months. In fact, peak container shipping season starts in the third quarter, just before summer.

A recent survey of 200 container logistics experts conducted by Container xChange found that 51% of respondents expected this year's peak season to be worse than last year. Having an inventory strategy in place now to prepare for commodities in short supply is critical.
