Inventory management

Our inventory management program is designed to prevent and detect diversion of product and ensure both quality and accuracy of inventory levels.. This begins with scheduled receipt and inspection of all inbound product in a secure, caged receiving area. Cycle counts are conducted daily on all active pick and movement locations of product. Weekly inventory reports are provided and a full inventory count is conducted on an annual basis. For title model programs, no six-month pre-dating is required, so we can provide just-in-time inventory management with same-day shipping.

This inventory management system fully complies with current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) guidelines for lot traceability and accountability. The warehouse management system assigns inventory in First Expired/First Out (FEFO) to control inventory on a lot-by-lot basis, but has the ability to assign by specified rules.

We defer to manufacturer-specified pack-out configurations and for direction on materials used, as well as for validation. Through our strategic sourcing capabilities, we can provide a vast array of pack-out materials to meet all your product requirements.
