How to Make Room for Active Inventory

Or, what to do when slow-moving inventory takes up too much valuable space in your warehouse.

Inventory is like electricity: you can't run your business without it, but it's rarely top of mind. However, unlike electricity, inventory takes up physical space, it's expensive to store, and someone has to actively organize and track it even when it's not needed.

Solving Supply Chain Challenges for the Aviation Industry

Wayne Trzeciak Joins Cura Resource Group

In April, we attended our first Aviation Week MRO Americas trade show to educate ourselves about the industry, and to see if CRG's turnkey parts distribution centers could help fleet operators, aircraft manufacturers, and parts suppliers bounce back from the catastrophic supply chain disruptions caused by COVID.

We came home convinced that brick-and-mortar fulfillment centers close to busy airports can give parts sellers more distribution capacity and the ability to generate revenue faster without the traditional investment in real estate and internal support systems.

Five Ways Aviation MROs Can Benefit From Walk-In Parts Distribution Centers

This week we're heading to Aviation Week's MRO Americas 2022 - Accelerate! show in Dallas to talk about how smarter distribution models can help MROs overcome aviation supply disruptions.

Aviation was one of the industries hit hardest by the worldwide COVID pandemic. More than half of the world's aircraft fleets were stored, or flew less often in the past year. As a result, aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) spending was 31% less in 2021 than it was in 2019. Global aviation analysts at OliverWyman predict that MRO demand will return to pre-pandemic levels by 2023, but they also say it's unlikely to achieve pre-COVID growth rates for decades to come.

"Free Yourself" from These 3 Delivery Challenges

Online shopping—for both goods and services—has become common practice in nearly every nation around the world. Some people choose to shop online for convenience, with door to door free shipping playing a significant role. Others are more price-conscious: an internet-only sale makes purchasing online a real cost-cutter. Still others shop online due to necessity: there are many brands out there that are online-only, and even some brick-and-mortar retailers only sell particular merchandise, like clearance or artisan goods that you can't find in stores, through an online channel. Or, they live in a region where the store they want to buy from is not local.
