“We want to focus our efforts on product development and at the same time continue to offer the fast and accurate order processing that we have been known for” said Clay Haller, president at Advanced Elements.
Seasonality was another factor in Advanced Elements decision to hire a 3PL. Labor and space flexibility helps increase profit by paying only for space and labor actually needed during peak and slow seasons. Flexing up during peak season, and minimizing costs during off peak is critical and challenging.
Advanced Elements selected ITS Logistics for their knowledge and experience with outdoor industry products. “We needed a partner who knows our business, not just a warehouse,” continued Clay from Advanced Elements. “ITS worked to understand our products, and showed us how they can meet our needs. They have resources and technology to make logistics part of our competitive advantage”
“We are very pleased to be Advanced Elements partner and we are very excited about Advanced Elements state of the art products” said Kasia Wenker of ITS Logistics. We work with folks who want us on their team, share their passion with us so we can meet their goals. We are not just their warehouse, we are their logistics team.
ITS Logistics will provide a full end-to-end solution for Advanced Elements, handling all warehousing and transportation needs. Advanced Elements has already moved into ITS Logistics’ state of the art facilities, which include 100% RF for complete shipping accuracy, as well as support for all retail requirements and EDI.
