What is Just-in-Time Shipping?
“Just-in-time” shipping is a strategy that states what it is – products ship just in time as needed rather than being warehoused or stored. This approach is known as “lean inventories” since companies keep their warehouses sparse.
The alternative to just-in-time delivery is stocking or warehousing, which requires a warehouse facility.
Just-in-time shipping requires close coordination with product suppliers to ensure timely delivery. This whole system proved challenging when the supply chain went awry in 2020.
