Automotive parts distributors
Unified planning for automotive parts distribution
RELEX helps wholesale distributors of automotive parts and tools improve planning across different functional areas, from forecasting and replenishment to workforce optimization. Distributors can eradicate silos and optimize cost reductions with improved supply chain visibility and updated labor requirements.
Address your biggest inventory forecasting challenges
Wholesalers of automotive parts and tools face complex challenges including new product introductions, seasonality, slow movers, price changes, supplier restrictions, and strict delivery schedules.
Turnover and availability
For automotive parts wholesalers, the challenges of inventory turnover and low availability can lead to high costs and lost sales. A reliance on manual processes and disconnected legacy systems can make overcoming these challenges difficult.
Aligning workforce scheduling with deliveries
The flow of goods received from suppliers needs to be aligned with available labor at distribution centers to avoid expensive overtime and ensure deliveries align with warehouse capacity.
Large and complex assortments
A broad assortment, including slow movers and seasonal products (with long lead times and fluctuating demand) can make it difficult to generate accurate forecasts.
Siloed departments and misaligned operations
The misalignment between supply chain and operations planning, caused by a lack of transparency across departments, can result in lost sales, diminished profits, and dissatisfied customers.
Optimize wholesale supply chain processes
Use the power of automation and AI-driven solutions from RELEX for accurate supply chain planning to improve efficiency and capacity planning, increase sales, and drive down the cost of inventory.
Accurate, automated inventory planning supported by AI can reduce inventory levels, cut order placements by 50%, and maintain 99+% availability.
Machine learning can leverage enormous volumes of data to create highly accurate forecasts, taking into consideration slow movers and seasonal products.
Improve visibility within a centralized solution to effectively manage your use of capacity, workforce, and space to reap benefits across all core retail processes.
