The cost-savings associated with partnerships instead of vendor relationships
With Black Friday in the rear view and Christmas still to come, many people are focused on the price of the products they need. Will it go on sale? Can I get a better deal? What’s the catch?
But when it comes to your operations, it’s important to remember that it’s not about the cheapest price. It’s about the most affordable price. Can you afford to deal with demand and supply mismatches? Can you afford to spend time managing your pallet supply across multiple locations? Can you afford the hit to your brand if products are delivered damaged or late?
When the focus is on securing the cheapest price, there is always the risk of receiving an inferior product or poor customer service. In that case, the cheapest price can negatively affect your customers and, in turn, cause damage to your brand that adds up to more than you saved.
At Kamps, we build a partnership with you because we want to meet your long-term needs. A fire sale of low-priced pallets might meet your needs at this moment. But will they be there when your needs arise again? Will they help you manage your supply? Moreover, was the lack of pallets your actual problem, or is it an inefficient management program?
When it comes to your pallet supplier, the cheaper option may lower costs initially, but it could cost you in the long run. That is why Kamps approaches each account as a partnership rather than just a vendor relationship. We value your business, and we want to provide a valuable product to you. That comes from thoroughly understanding your needs and meeting them on-time – whatever it takes.
What’s more, a partnership can actually save you money in ways you may not consider if you’re solely focused on the final cost.
With a partner like Kamps, you benefit from:

Kamps has been in business for more than four decades, and we plan to be around for many more to come.
