Nexus Value-Added Logistics Services
Value-added services are those which complement and enhance warehousing, transportation, and logistics offerings. Using value-added logistics services enables companies to lower inventory footprints of finished goods by delaying the labeling and final assembly of products until customer orders are received. This is a cost effective supply chain strategy that gives companies more flexibility over their inventory.
Nexus value added services provide solutions that go beyond the basic warehousing and transportation servi ces that come to mind when companies look to outsource logistics. Nexus value added logistics services include:
Kitting & Final Assembly
Nexus can provide a variety of kitting & assembly services aimed at improving timeliness, production costs, and order processing. Nexus has experience with both stock kitting services(off the shelf) where kits are assembled from mass produced items kept in inventory and on demand kitting services where kits are assembled as orders are presented.
Polybagging & Shrink Wrapping
Other value added services Nexus provides are bundle pack shrink wrapping and onsite product polybagging. This allows for mass customization of orders as well as the ability to produce and fulfill customer orders on demand. Typically this process is called "co-packing" which consists of wrapping different products together (for example to bundle a sample of a new product with an existing product line) or identical products (in the case of promotional offers ex. "buy one, get one free.")
Nexus currently provides pick/pack operations for customers at every Nexus warehouse. Pick/Pack service entails breaking a pallet of cases and shipping individual cases to fulfill individual orders. This can also entail picking individual items (packs or inner packs) from cases for orders and build new cartons, packs, or pallets to meet Customer requirements.
Nexus offers mass application services for customer supplied or Nexus generated labels in addition to or separate from our other value added offerings.
Nexus provides value added logistics from its Chicagoland campus.
