Winning the game in sporting good logistics
McKenna knows what it takes to be at the top of your game in sporting good logistics and we offer a number of benefits to help ensure your products are readily available no matter what the season.
Every industry has unique needs when it comes to their third party logistics (3PL) provider, and sporting good manufacturers are no exception. Many sports are seasonal, so consumer and therefore retail demand fluctuates throughout the year. When spring comes around, every one of your customers, large and small, is going to be in need of baseball equipment. Come fall, they all start looking for skis and snowboards. And the holidays are open season for a wide variety of sports fans’ wish list fulfillment. You need to know that the warehousing and storage space you need will be available.
Running your business successfully includes understanding the ebb and flow of market demands for your products, including how you will manage this flow through your third party logistics provider. Sporting good logistics requires knowledge not only of seasonality, but the best channels for your products and how to work with those retailers and suppliers for the most efficient results.
