  • I like the part that says about the improved cash flow. However, there is not much leeway when it comes to the period of delivery because, as I have been posting time and again, there is a truck ban period here from 6 am to 9 pm where trucks are not allowed on the main roads. That is actually the biggest...

  • From what I understand in your premise, the stocks would be delivered to Sweden which is the destination country. But such stocks are not ordered yet so it has to be stored somewhere there. And when a buyer orders the product, there will be a mark-up to compensate for the cost of storage. The advantage...

  • Parking problems of trucks

    The urban areas here are getting so crowded that big trucks couldnít just park on the side of the road for it will cause heavy traffic. What about if the destination of the goods is in a warehouse by the main road? There is one big hardware warehouse here with no parking area inside the compound. When...

    replied to Inflating Figures
    With the issue of inflated prices, itís sad to say that it is also happening here in our country particularly in purchases by government offices. We had the experience of being invited to submit price quotations for computer supplies when we had our retailing business years ago. When we submitted our...

  • We have a place in Manila called Divisoria which is the hub of commerce dominated by Chinese businessmen. The market is complete with all items that you may need from food stuff to hardware products. The price is the cheapest in the country so you can imagine the brisk sales there. I think 99% of the...

  • Manipulating the market prices

    How do they manipulate the market price of a particular consumer item? The current issue here is the price of onion. Farmers are complaining that the market price have drastically gone down to 30% of the normal price. As per the investigation, the market is flooded with cheap imported onions. Obviously...

  • From what I understand in the video, it looks like the secret sauce is the volume or quantity of the delivery and processing. Just like the Chinese style of business Ė they have little markup when the sale is by volume. It is better to sell by volume than by small quantities because in the long run...

  • I understand the plight of restaurants regarding supply chain because the need is food stuff which is consumable and perishable too. The nature of selling and purchases is the dynamic price changes from time to time particularly with fruits and vegetable products. I have a friend who had a restaurant...

  • Sometimes it makes me wonder why warehouses of food stuff, particularly rice which is the most common commodity here, do not have security against pests. Rats and mice are the pests that eat rice although sometimes ants can also be a problem. One warehouse manager said that such a warehouse should be...

  • I donít have an actual experience with the savings on cost regarding terms of payment in the logistics but I had the experience when we had the retail business. I was actually on the other side of the fence and our customers were given 60 days terms with no down payment. It was a losing proposition...

  • Trucks are up to 10 years old only

    You may not believe but most delivery trucks here, especially the 18-wheeler trucks, are mostly more than 20 years old. That may be the reason of the very common cause of accidents due to loss of brakes. In the logistics company where I applied, their trucks are up to 10 years of service only and they...

  • Dovetail Outreach, the lease consideration is one important factor that can be overlooked when the owner of the warehouse is pushing with the deal. The fine print is the rate of increase that should be studied very well particularly if the warehouse is in a a good location that is near the city. The...

    replied to Hoarding
    Over here hoarding is commonly done by cartels. It is like a syndicate by a group of traders that try to control the market prices. When there is short supply in the market the price goes up so the hoarders will slowly release their supply to the market for a better price. If the government will not...

  • I have noticed that smoking is now prohibited inside the warehouse and some big companies do not allow smoking inside the compound. This is a vast improvement from the regulations before where I had seen personnel smoking inside the warehouse while doing their work. That is common for a hardware warehouse...

  • Fluctuating supplies in the market

    Before the Christmas season last year, there was a problem in the swine industry because of the foot-and-mouth-disease that greatly affected the market. It was logical for the price to surge and the government issued a warning against opportunists. But the real problem with the suppliers to the retailers...

  • Road regulation for trucks

    This regulation has been implemented for more than 10 years already but I still see some trucks doing or violating that regulation of the ďNose in and nose outĒ in the main roads. The regulation prohibits trucks to enter a warehouse rear first because it would create traffic on the road especially for...

  • I agree that you have to be on the level with your dealings. But mind you that smuggled goods come to the hands of big time importers thatís why it is so difficult to catch them. Take for instance the rice cartel where some traders import rice without government permit. They hoard the rice and flood...

  • In summary, a warehouse operator is one who handles the upkeep and the operation (incoming and outgoing of supplies). It includes safety and security plus all the other operations concerning the warehouse which is not limited to the upkeep of the warehouse and facilities. I posted my own summary because...

  • Regarding the trends in supply chain, what comes to my head is the unusual trend that may hit the products that you are dealing with. An example is the volatile price changes of oil products that is largely dependent on the world market prices. Another trend is the online ordering of products which...

  • Late last year when there was a slight shortage of rice in the market, it was reported in the news that one warehouse of the government contained spoiled rice which is not good for human consumption anymore. The reason was the bad weather and the pests that entered the warehouse. Itís so sad that the...
