Our Solutions Reduce Your Landed Cost
Landed Cost = Product Cost + Order Processing Cost + Fulfillment/Distribution Costs + Shipping/Transportation Costs
Simply stated, “Landed Cost” is the “total cost of a product once it has arrived at the customer’s door.” At Gung-Ho, we always focus on Landed Cost because that is the true total cost our clients ultimately pay to get their products delivered to their customers worldwide.
Landed Cost includes the cost of the products; the cost to receive, assemble, and store the products; the cost to process the receipt of an order; the cost to prepare an order for fulfillment or distribution; plus all shipping and transportation costs to get that product delivered to the customer within a specified time.
It is clearly advantageous to reduce the cost of each and every component of landed cost since that allows the seller to lower their final selling price and/or increase their profit margin associated with the sale.
How Gung-Ho Minimizes Landed Cost: First, we analyze the product specifications and usage requirements to determine the most cost-effective mix of Gung-Ho manufacturing and distribution facilities. The analysis includes utilizing Gung-Ho’s Least-Touch Assembly where our manufacturing facilities receive drop-shipped parts and assemble them during the manufacturing process and Last-Touch Fulfillment where we ship directly from the manufacturing facility that produces and assembles the last part.
For large production volumes and broad distribution requirements, we also analyze using multiple facilities to reduce the cost of shipping and time in transit. When the benefits of multiple facilities outweigh the benefits of a single-location, we use our powerful GOAL technology to automatically route production and distribution orders to the facility closest to the ultimate recipient including end-user consumers, retail stores, and distribution centers.
Finally, we use our Go-Figure technology to determine and assign the least expensive shipping method required to get the product delivered on time.
To ensure Landed Cost continues to remain as low as possible over time, we constantly monitor and automatically reduce each element of Landed Cost. With this never-ending focus on Landed Cost, our clients rest assured they are always paying the lowest total cost to get their products to their customers on time.
