Ensuring product availability with the lowest logistics costs while maintaining the lowest attainable inventory level across the supply chain, our new and improved vendor-managed inventory (VMI) program helps solar manufacturers, project developers and EPCs achieve a sustainable increase in operational efficiency and profits.
About Our Solar VMI Program
Inventory management plays a critical part in determining the overall efficiency of solar manufacturing and EPC businesses. Not having materials and finished goods at the correct place and time creates avoidable risks and margin pressures. Targray Solar’s vendor-managed inventory program was created specifically to address these concerns by reducing storage and downtime costs.
Faster inventory turnover facilitates the reduction of inventory levels, which in turn enables companies to free up working capital.
Vendor-managed inventory creates new efficiencies by helping businesses procure materials at the right time, and from the right location.
With fewer ordering and logistics functions to worry about, Targray VMI program participants are able to lower their administrative expenses.
Effective vendor-managed inventory programs help build strong, long-lasting vendor relationships, which opens the door to better purchasing terms and conditions.
