Inventory management is obviously a crucial component in the wholesale supply chain, and in today’s consumer-driven, multi-channel environment many wholesalers face an internal struggle over investment and carrying costs versus stock-outs and lost sales. Wholesalers need to guarantee every item in every location every day to maintain their competitive advantage in the marketplace.
Sedlak’s inventory planning experts assist clients with striking the optimal balance between inventory and service levels at the lowest cost. We also enable better inventory practices within the distribution center and across the logistics network to streamline operations and improve order fulfillment.

Sedlak employs proven methods and tools to enable wholesale industry goals of “right product, right place, right time” requirements while minimizing costs. Our experts enable clients to develop strategies to soften the impacts of unpredictable demand, supply shortages and lead times, as well as improve inventory flow (“push” vs. “pull”).
We enable clients to balance inventory investment and desired service levels, and utilize warehouse management system (WMS) capabilities to improve planning performance and tracking accuracy. Our analysts have expertise to determine the ideal flow of product, best stocking levels and locations, and overall supply chain enhancement.
