Import and Export
When it comes to getting your product across the border, E-BI has your back. Our logistics team has a deep knowledge of the rules and regulations of importing/exporting. Getting larger volumes of product from point A to point B can be tricky, but we will help to navigate you through the process and do what we can to find a way around higher tariffs and logistical road blocks.
VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory)
E-BI offers a special VMI program to selected projects. This streamlined approach to inventory management offers clients onsite inventory supply, with generally one month’s worth of product. The VMI program starts after PPR and volume production have occurred for at least three shipments. This is to ensure that quality stability has been achieved.
VMI requires a special project finance program which covers product cost, logistics cost, warehousing and releasing, insurance, import and export custom duties, and end-of-line cost. Please contact your E-BI project team for details.
