Benefits of the SEKO Solution
- Providing improved supply chain visibility
- Managing inbound freight from multiple factories by air and ocean from the Far East
- Maximizing factory consolidation opportunities - at source
- Providing supply chain training to buying and merchandising teams
- Reducing costs throughout the supply chain
White Stuff needed full visibility of its international supply chain, and also wanted to consolidate its inbound freight to reduce costs.
The MySEKO technology solution was implemented to proactively manage online factory bookings in the Far East and India. SEKO worked with a number of suppliers to increase consolidation opportunities which resulted in an increase in full multi-supplier container loads and substantial cost savings.
White Stuff has increased the volume of goods shipped in full containers, reducing its overall freight cost per unit. MySEKO effectively manages resources and the flow of inbound goods, enabling White Stuff to proactively manage shippers based on their ex-factory dates. This has led to significant cost savings throughout the entire supply chain as well as on-time production and delivery to store.
