Another day, another container. This time filled with about 2600 white NES Reliable Bistro Chairs. Again we have back-orders which we will be looking to fill, and we've been making phone calls to customers who are eagerly awaiting their new chairs. If you haven't heard from one of our sales reps and you have some chairs on back-order, give us a call. One of our sales reps would be more than happy to help you
This container is far and away the easiest container to unload. Our factory wraps four stacks of chairs together and then loads them onto the container using pallet jacks. That means that we can use our pallet jacks to take them off the container, which we did in about 90 minutes. Unfortunately, we weren't able to get the now-empty container picked up until much later in the day which made shipping difficult.
Unable to get a lot of orders out the door, our shipping and receiving team spent most of the day restacking the chairs so that they could fit into 8 foot trailers and checking for any defective chairs. We rarely see any bad chairs, but it's good to grab them before we ship them across the country.
We aren't anticipating any of our other containers to arrive this week, but we should be getting 2 or 3 containers next week, including a small container of porcelain. Porcelain is one of the few items where we don't fill the container to the roof with product. We tend to max out on weight when the porcelain is 3 to 4 feet high. Lots of small, heavy boxes, filled with fifty or sixty different products which are all intermixed makes for a long day for the shipping team.
Each container that arrives in our warehouse fills holes that have developed in our inventory. If you called earlier this year and were told that a product was out of stock, feel free to send us an email or to give us a call to find out when things will be back in stock. We'd be happy to get you a quote or answer any questions that you may have.
