My company has recently started getting more and more wholesale requests. Prior to this we only sell on our website and Amazon.
We typically ship to wholesale clients directly from our manufacturer in China. This cuts out having to store inventory here in the US.
Recently however, we signed to a larger retailer here in the US that requires us to have inventory on hand here in the US so we can easily fulfill their purchase orders.
All of our website and Amazon inventory is held at Amazon warehouses. Obviously we can't ship wholesale orders from there. So we are looking for another way to store inventory here in the US. This location will have to receive and store large shipments from China. Then when we receive a purchase order from the retailer, they will have to prep and ship the goods to the retailers warehouse.
What would be the easiest way for us to do this?
