I don't know how many of you can help with this, but there are many bright minds on here that can surely help..... I think we are spending too much money stocking our 3 service vans. I have always told the guys to buy a case at a time type of thing but I think that may be a mistake. Anybody have an idea of how to effectively control this, thereby keeping my cashflow at its maximum? For instance my idea was this: I can get a printout from my supplier telling me exactly how many of each item I bought last year.....divide that by 12 months and come up with a monthly usage. Than I can subtract what is on the trucks currently.....coming up with what I really need to have monthly. Than my supplier can deliver this monthly supply to my yard and the guys can use it out of the shop......we can adjust the deliveries by what we have or have not used...up or down. Or....I can have the guys keep a weekly tally of what they use, and on Friday afternoon they can buy exactly what they used on their truck? This will eliminate the "daily" visit to the supplier and also eliminate excess stock on vans, which will help cash flow. Anybody?
