If bulk packaging is a key area that affects your business, continuity of supply is crucial to avoid disruption to your business. Establishing a consignment stock system can eliminate this risk factor. Consignment works on a pay-as-you-go basis. What this means is the packaging company sends you their products – bulk bags, for example – which are stored on your business premises, but you are not charged until they are used. Charges are normally based on a monthly inventory check.
