Final Product Configuration for the Technology Industry
Post-manufacturing changes to products made in Asia and packaging can add significant time and cost.
GENCO has a solution to this challenge that can shorten your supply chain, reduce international transportation costs, avoid or defer tax payments and give you the flexibility to respond quickly and economically to product changes.
An Improved Model for Final Product Configuration and Packaging
In the traditional technology industry supply chain, product destined for the North American market is made and packaged offshore and shipped to North America ready to sell. Any changes, such as to the software or packaging, either require the units to be returned to Asia or unpackaged and reconfigured in the local market at great cost.
More and more companies are choosing, instead, to have GENCO do the final product configuration and packaging at our U.S. high-tech distribution center, which is located within a foreign trade zone (FTZ). This facility, which also houses a consumer electronics test and repair center, has advanced capabilities for software updates and other technical services.
GENCO Value Drivers for Final Product Configuration in the Technology Industry
Lower Freight Costs- Having unpackaged units ship in bulk from Asia and purchasing packaging materials in the United States reduces international freight costs.
Deferred Payment- Our FTZ services enable you to delay duty payment until the final product is configured and shipped to U.S. customers.
Collocation- By co-locating packaging within distribution operations, you will drive down local freight costs.
Fewer Touch Points- A more streamlined, efficient supply chain increases your flexibility and accelerates the cash cycle.
