Move will Lower Freight Costs and Reduce Split Orders
Responding to increased retailer demand from its eastern and western distribution centers, QBP has broadly expanded inventory in Pennsylvania and Utah. This will result in fewer split orders, lower freight costs and faster delivery for dealers in these regions. QBP calls the initiative “More Parts in More Places.”
“This development is testament to the outstanding success of our eastern and western distribution operations,” said Alix Magner, QBP distribution sales manager. “Our customers asked for more locally available product, and we quickly responded by boosting inventory of high-demand items. More Parts in More Places will save dealers time and money, and help them serve their own customers better.”
QBP launched the initiative after a recent survey revealed that customers in Utah and Pennsylvania wanted more products available in their local warehouses. Working closely with managers from each regional center, the distribution team rapidly increased levels of key product.
“More Parts in More Places is the result of carefully listening to our customers and then delivering what they need to succeed,” said Magner. “It’s all part of what we call the Q Advantage.”
