SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2022
Blue Streak is proud to support Small Business Saturday, a day dedicated to strengthening communities by supporting local small businesses.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN? LOGISTICS LEXICON
This month in our Logistics Lexicon series, we discuss in-transit inventory. In-transit, or pipeline inventory, refers to the finished goods that have been shipped by a seller but have yet to reach the buyer. These goods are typically being sold from one company to another, many times from a wholesaler to a retailer who will then resell the items. This wholesale-to-retail transaction can sometimes take a significant amount of time to occur, especially when it involves the shipping of a large quantity of goods overseas from a manufacturer to either a wholesale supplier or directly to a retailer. In-transit inventory can sometimes create accounting and inventory conundrums for companies that fail to effectively track items being shipped from one location to another.
Blue Streak offers a range of supply chain management services, including warehousing, and can create a scalable, customized plan to best meet your specific logistics needs. Please contact us for more information.
