As a distributor or wholesaler, a lot is expected of you – low prices, nearly perfect fill rates, and on-time delivery… every time. To meet those demands, you’re in reactive mode – taking orders and fighting fires. Your intentions are good: give the customer what they want and ask for. The problem is that selling reactively and taking orders puts pressure on margins and makes it impossible to truly stand out from the competition. It’s a vicious cycle. You know you need to break it. But how ?
