As part of our philosophy to tailor systems that assist principals to better manage and develop their businesses, Adelaide Warehouse & Distribution Services offers a range of rating structures as follows:
This is the most commonly adopted system, which defines rates for each function. While it involves a large amount of calculation, it does permit a full dissection of storage and distribution costs by function.
- Piece Rate
Through careful costing of all services required over a period, Adelaide Warehouse & Distribution Services can assign charges on a per unit basis. This alternative suits products with a broad range of high moving lines and again provides a simplified invoicing process.
- Percentage of Net Sales Turnover
From analysis of projected activity levels and average unit sales price, a fixed percentage of net sales turnover can be used.
This would cover either warehousing or warehousing/storage and is a self-governing expenditure that is linked to increases in both sales price and turnover volume of products.
- Fixed Rate
Where a principal sells product on long term contract or in a scheduled purchase environment, warehouse space, manpower and transport can all be estimated on a fixed rate payable in advance.
This rate also suits projects where specialised storage areas or dedicated staff are required.
- Hourly Rate
This is applied where tasks required are outside of the normal scope of warehousing pick’n’pack servicing such as fulfilment, order processing and special requests.
Once specific transit times have been committed, Adelaide Warehouse & Distribution Services will select the best possible method/option available to achieve the optimum result.
