Small - Medium Enterprise (SME)

Small - medium business can now get their products to market. Pik Paksí system levels the playing field between big corporate brands and SME looking to compete in a global world. Most third party logistics (3PL) operators provide outsourced contract solutions for warehousing and distribution. Solutions can be highly customised or based on an industry standard model. They typically require a fixed amount of space, minimum volumes and a contract term (usually 3-5 years).

The problem with this, for a small or start up business is that you may not know what your volumes are going to be for the next 3-5 years and you may not want a fixed amount of space. You want something a little more flexible but you still want the benefits of outsourcing, so you can focus your time on growing your business, not in the warehouse counting stock and checking freight invoices.

Now Pik Pak offers an on demand warehousing service, especially suited for small business. It is basically a web based service that allows you to receive inventory into one of our facilities, view stock levels and your customer orders in real time 24/7 from anywhere. There are no long term contracts, no minimum volumes you only pay for what you use. Itís so much easier and convenient than negotiating large complicated contracts and you can leave when you like.
