Although they are not quite as heavy and cumbersome as some of the products we handle the cost of getting skis and snowboards and their related products can be cut drastically by receiving, warehousing, fulfilling, and shipping orders closer to your end retail accounts and even end customers. I would venture to guess we could stage these companies products for about $2-3 /unit in any one of our 20+ regionally warehouse and fulfillment facilities plus the greatly reduced outbound small parcel or freight shipping costs. Best of all you only pay us for your through put and in off season when you carrier no inventory or limit inventory you pay nothing or just for the units you have in inventory keeping more cash on hand for investment instead of paying for a long term lease that is really only used for a portion of the year!
We are working on a couple of bids for companies such as Nordica Skis/Technica Skis and Armada Skis. I think this year will be the year we begin to handle a couple of great lines. We have even had interest expressed from some of the very cool boutique handmade brands like Icelantic Skis out of Denver and Moment Skis out of Reno Nevada. Whatever the case, we would be excited to work with any great brands small or large in this industry as it is one of our passions/ hobbies and we would will like to help a hand full of great industry companies be even more successful using our highly flexible and scale-able warehousing and distribution infrastructure! Best of luck in 2012-13 and lets us know if we can be off service now or in the future, we would be stoked to work with you!
Talk to you soon,
