PURCHASING & VENDOR MANAGEMENT
Estimating how much packaging you will need to handle your output from the field is an ongoing challenge. Our Resource Management team has developed tools to help you generate seasonally balanced annual packaging supply forecasts based on commodity type, acreage, and growing region. We have the experience necessary to translate forecast information into actionable data that is required for vital pre-builds prior to the start of the season as well as monthly, weekly and daily in-season demand planning and release ordering.
Our unique modeling tools manage forecasts by region that consider historical data, weather calculations, grower input, and driver feedback. If you have multiple field or warehouse locations, we have the ability and agility to provide immediate response to localized demands through inventory balancing and our oversight of packaging movement between your locations. We have the team and operations in place to ensure that you will have the right product in the right quantity at the right place at the right time.
At Sambrailo Resource Management we know that you may need a number of suppliers to meet all of your packaging needs. Our global relationships and integrated systems allow us to not only obtain the right materials at the right price, but they give us the ability to provide you with consistent and uniform packaging to each of your facilities, regardless of location. Our team will pre-qualify, select, and negotiate with vendors on your behalf. We constantly perform on-going measurements and audits of vendors against key performance metrics to ensure that the solutions we recommend will be the most cost-effective for you and your type of operation. Whether you are a large grower/shipper or a small independent grower, our team has the tools to develop RFQs, evaluate the responses, and manage all purchasing functions on your behalf.
