Buyer's Consolidation

More efficient and more reasonably-priced procurement from multiple overseas suppliers!

Have you ever experienced any of the problems listed below?
  • - Separate procurement from multiple suppliers can make management complicated and time-consuming, and it can also increase the total cost.
  • - We can't formulate a sales plan because we are unable to predict the timing of delivery of products from the suppliers.
  • - Products supplied from overseas are temporarily stored in a domestic warehouse. This may lead to excess inventory in some cases in which we are concerned about the cost to be high.
Let Yamato Group solve your problems!
