Resources and
Technology to

Optimize Inventory Management


Improve Availability, Continuity and Profitability

Align arrival of goods with production demand

As your 4PL provider, AFS Logistics manages resources, technology, inventory and other 3PLs around the globe to optimize the delivery of specific goods from suppliers with long lead times or who are unable to deliver just-in-time. We take control and ownership of your goods in transit, including storage at strategically located warehouses, so we can manage future inventory against forecasted demand without burdening your balance sheet with unneeded stock.

Add visibility and reduce risks

There’s no value in building safety stock if it’s inaccessible. AFS Logistics uses the Taulia Inventory Management solution to gain visibility and control and maximize production uptime. We offer fully transparent inventory tracking to monitor goods from production to carriers, through customs, destination warehouses and even to delivery to improve availability, continuity and profitability.

Reduce long in-transit lead times, enable higher profits

AFS’s 4PL service owns inventory while it’s in-transit or nearby to align the delivery of your goods with production, so you can improve lead times and your bottom line. Our team coordinates inventory availability with your production needs to optimize your logistics operations and enable higher profits for your organization by boosting safety stocks but relieving you of the balance sheet burden of inventory until you need it.
