Use storage Brentwood for your seasonal business stock

6 Tips to help manage your seasonal inventory:

1. Study trends and predictions for the season ahead

Use google trends to try and make predictions for what will be the most popular products in the season ahead. Predicting seasonal shifts will help you to plan out you required inventory. 


2. Look back at your data to help you forecast your requirements to avoid stockouts 

This is one of the most helpful and important steps you can take – by looking back at your past sales and data you can make some clear and informed decisions on which items you need to increase stock on to avoid stockouts.


3. Focus on your bestsellers

We know it’s hard to predict exactly what stock you will need, but one thing you can be sure of is that you want to avoid stockouts of your bestsellers. Do an audit of your bestsellers from the past year and it can be helpful to look back further than this, to see if any of the trends will have an impact on your current bestsellers and factor this in.


4. Make a plan

Now you are armed with data, it’s time to make a plan. Work out which lines you are going to prioritise and make an estimate on how much extra stock you need to acquire. 

This formula is a useful tool:

Safety stock = (Maximum daily demand x Maximum lead time) – (Average daily demand x Average lead time) 


5. Contact suppliers early 

Now you have a plan in place, get organised with contacting your suppliers and arranging delivery dates. Lead times make come as a nasty shock, especially during the busiest months of the year, so start contacting your suppliers early and factor lead times in to your planning, always with some extra contingency.  


6. Make your fulfilment as seamless as possible

When you receive your stock, it’s time to get organised! Organise your stock into categories and if possible group bestsellers together so that they can be quickly accessed. 

Get organised – labelling can be a god-send when you have to quickly fulfil orders, so map out your storage unit logically and use racking in order to create an organised layout.
