As part of our commitment to being a full-service provider, we are also equipped to warehouse, stock and drop-ship your display programs as needed. In fact, these capabilities differentiate us from many of our competitors because many companies that manufacturer retail displays and fixtures simply do not have the space to offer warehousing services.
However, here at our state-of-the-art manufacturing and warehouse campus in Rhode Island, we have dedicated 100,000 square feet of space to warehousing, fulfillment and related services.
Most of the custom retail fixtures and displays that we build go right out the door to our customers throughout the country and beyond — from small and midsize retailers to major national brands. However, many of our customers rely on us to store their retail display products and then time-release them as needed.
We also work with our customers to receive and store their merchandise, so we can carefully stock their displays with product and then send fully stocked displays to retail locations, whenever and wherever they are needed.
If your retail display program includes third-party materials in addition to those that we have built in-house, we have the capability to store those as well, enabling us to ship out everything you need — all together — for maximum convenience.
Our advanced logistical capabilities equip us to coordinate closely with your other suppliers and providers (including channel partners who specialize in graphics) to help ensure that your retail program and fulfillment needs are seamlessly met in a time-sensitive, cost-effective fashion.
Retail is a fast-changing environment, especially with current challenges in the marketplace. That’s why we also offer inventory replenishment assistance (min/max management) for customers who take advantage of our warehousing, storage and fulfillment services.
Our min/max management program is ideal for customers who need us to store fixtures and displays (in some cases fully stocked with merchandise) and other components, then ship them out to your store locations as needed.
By working closely with our clients to estimate monthly, quarterly and annual needs, and by using data analytics to track actual usage; we can help each customer know exactly when supplies are getting low and when they need to reorder.
In this process, our customer experience team partners with our warehousing team to provide regular reports on existing inventory of displays, fixtures, merchandise, cash registers or other components, etc. Some of the information can be generated automatically by coordinating our min/max management reporting program with your company’s ERP (enterprise resource planning) system.
Not only are our products custom built just for you; we also bring that customized approach to every aspect of the process — from delivering renderings and design concepts in the most convenient format to shipping the finished products using whatever methods and specifications work best for you.
Getting your custom fixtures and displays where you need them to be, when you need them to be there is of paramount importance here at VCI. That’s why we also offer custom labeling to facilitate in-house logistics once the delivery arrives at your site. This way, your team will have all the information they need to understand exactly where each piece goes and how it fits into the overall store environment.
Over the years, we’ve become experts at meeting each client’s labeling and reporting requirements, tracking shipments and working with our traffic and transportation partners to manage each delivery. Our long track record of success also means we’re able to get the best rates from our shipping partners.
At VCI, we take great pride in our work and in our partnerships with our customers — a commitment that continues long after your custom fixtures, displays and signware are out the door and on their way to you.
