South Coast Logistics

Supply Chain Solutions & Inventory Management

South Coast Logistics has experience providing support and solutions for every level of your supply chain. As an agent for STI, we provide a host of supply chain management solutions that can be customized to the specific requirements of your business.

Loan Management

South Coast Logistics provides customized management services for inventory that is loaned for temporary placement or demonstration. We provide personnel trained to carefully handle your inventory, with the capability to clean and repair products as required.

Order Fulfillment

We provide a comprehensive order fulfillment program which allows for prompt and efficient delivery directly to your customers. Once an order is placed by your customer, we manage the product picking, consolidation, transport, and delivery.

Product Postponement

Product postponement allows companies to mass produce a base product while delaying its configuration. We use inventory management to keep all of the base products and potential configurations in order. When an order comes in requiring a specific configuration, our trained personnel handle the final assembly according to that order’s configuration requirements.

In-Transit Merge

STI’s In-Transit merge service allows clients to manufacture or procure parts and materials from multiple locations while still delivering one complete order to their customers. We do this by having all of the various parts of a product shipped to one destination point where they can be merged and then delivered. Rather than shipping the merged product over a great distance, we select destinations that are local to the final delivery. This provides our clients with manufacturing and procurement flexibility and cuts down on transport cost of the final order.

Forward Deployment

We provide forward deployment services for companies that have a future need for assembly or delivery. In the case of finished products, we save clients time and money by storing inventory close to final delivery points. Likewise, we offer parts storage in preparation for product assembly or similar scenarios.

Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)

When it comes to managing parts from multiple vendors and ensuring that ownership is tracked, maintained, and transferred to the final buyer, STI offers strong representation for all parties. We offer agreements with assemblers and manufacturers, providing centralized storage for related parts while maintaining separation of ownership until order fulfillment.
