Bulk buying forces the customer to pay for warehouse, use up space and incur fixed overhead costs.
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) May 06, 2015
Racer Boxes, a Vancouver wholesale box manufacturer, has recently published a blog that educates readers and prospective clients on how to save valuable warehouse space and overhead expenses by ordering wholesale boxes on a weekly basis, rather than in bulk. While bulk buying enables the customer to enjoy lower price quotes, it also forces them to pay for warehouse, use up space and incur fixed overhead costs.
The blog is based on a case study written by Racer Boxes when one of their customers recently switched to their weekly box delivery service in order to cut costs and save on space.
“The findings show that while buying boxes in bulk provides a bulk discount to the initial price, the increased cost of storing bulk orders of boxes can in some cases outweigh the savings,” states a company representative. “In this case study, the manufacturer’s dedicated inventory space for boxes added up to a monthly loss of $1,120 so at the end of the month he was coming out at a loss. Weekly deliveries of his boxes were effectively a bigger discount than buying bulk box orders.”
