Announcing the Adherex Stocking Program for Packaging Materials

May 2, 2024 | News & Resources

Speed and reliability are the cornerstones of distribution. Therefore, distributors always seek new, efficient methods of meeting customer demands without inventory overstocking or shortages. A common hurdle to operational efficiency is lead times. Given how quickly demand can shift, this situation could lead to a supply chain bottleneck. A significant disruption in supply for something as fundamental as stretch film can result in lost revenue, diminished profits, and a notable erosion of customer confidence. The ripple effect of products being out of stock forces end-users to seek alternatives, further straining distributor-customer relationships.

Recognizing this critical challenge, Adherex is thrilled to announce the launch of its Stocking Program, specifically designed for our most popular stretch film products.

The Adherex Stocking Program

This initiative is set to revolutionize how distributors access and manage their inventory of packaging materials, ensuring products are readily available—significantly reducing lead times and enhancing overall efficiency. As a result, lead times are reduced to four days.

This diverse range of products ensures that distributors can meet the varied needs of their end-users without delay. The core idea is to maintain a robust, ready-to-ship inventory, reducing lead times for distributors allowing them to grow their business without the usual barriers of inventory cycle turns.

This new program will include the following stretch film products that are vital packaging materials for distributors, including:

How does it work?

The Stocking Program operates on a simple yet effective principle: restocking based on demand. Our approach ensures that the most sought-after packaging materials are always available and ready to be shipped out at a moment’s notice. Keeping a close eye on demand patterns enables Adherex to swiftly replenish our inventory of essential products.

The stocking program may change the product numbers of items you ordinarily use, so be sure to reach out to one of our customer service reps to learn more about the new ordering process.

Why Adherex?

Traditionally, Adherex stretch film has been produced or converted on a made-to-order basis—while customizable, this often causes longer lead times. The Adherex Stocking Program significantly shifts from this model, offering distributors the advantage of shorter wait times on our most popular and essential packaging material products. Orders can now be processed in four business days, ensuring timely access, short lead times, and speed of delivery.

In a fast-paced world where prompt customer service is essential, Adherex is your partner in navigating the complexities of distribution, ensuring that you stay ahead of the curve and maintain a competitive edge. The Adherex Stocking Program is a testament to our commitment to supporting our distributors in overcoming operational challenges and enhancing their service offerings.
