Our Supply Chain Model

At Anixter, we continually invest in people, processes and technologies to meet your complete supply chain needs. In our supply chain model, we address five key areas that are necessary to build an effective solution.

Inventory Management
Product Enhancement and Packaging
Global Logistics

Managing multiple low-volume suppliers can be time consuming and create inefficiencies in your business.

Managing inventory can have an adverse effect on your schedule and budget if not done properly.

Preparing the products you buy for installation can be costly and impact your time to market.

Every time products are moved or transported, the risk of project delays and added costs increase

Transaction processing is an operational necessity; however, it can be a burden on cost, efficiency and time
