Explainer: Suppliers and purchasing
Updated: Mar 3, 2021
Here at Just Paper Tubes we understand the need for a reliable and trusted supplier. When it comes to purchasing Industrial tubes, mailing tubes and label cores price and lead-time is key.
Not only do we look for the same key attributes in our suppliers, but we fully understand that this is the same for every product purchased. The knowledge that your supply chain is reliable, cost effective and consistent, provides confidence your order will be fulfilled.
When a purchase is made both we and our customers need to be able to work to a set time frame from the point of purchase to the delivery of the finished product. That is why when you purchase your cardboard tubes from us, we are here to respond with price and lead-time quickly giving you a set time frame to work from. This allows you to work out both your stock levels and your re-order point “which enables you to run your processes smoothly”.
Stock levels are important to maintain, without raw materials to produce or manufacture your product your business would not be able to operate. Here at Just Paper Tubes we keep large raw material stocks to maintain our operation for the long term. This in turn gives our customers the confidence that there will be no disruption in supply.
We are aware that some project’s maybe a one off and that is why we have no minimum order quantity (MOQ) and hold large parent stocks to cut from. We are able to produce tape cores and label cores by next day delivery or sameday collection. Due to us running on a 24 hours basis 5 days a week we are also able to manufacture carpet cores and transit tubes with this same speedy lead-time.
It is important to review your supplier and make sure you are receiving the best level of customer care. Has your supplier let you down and left you with no stock or maybe the communication level between you and your supplier has broken down?
Receiving information on your order at every stage is key, this maybe a simple conformation informing your order has been both received and is being processed or it could be to follow your booking in process. Therefore we have an IT system which allows us to record all your requirements and attach this to each customer file. We work closely with our customers and can control weekly and monthly repeat orders on your behalf which takes the stress of remembering to re-order.
Storage and packaging are important, we offer postal tubes and mailing tubes with caps fitted or stapled packed as per your requirement, this can be on pallets, boxed or with set height requirements to fit with your racking system.
