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.

Benefits of a Build, Operate, Manage Parts Distribution Solution

“Build, operate, manage” lets small and medium-sized companies access big-company logistics at affordable prices.

Cura Resource Group started as a disruptor in the last-mile delivery business. Our turnkey package pick-up centers filled a gap for e-commerce retailers who need to provide a distributed sales force with better customer service in hard-to-serve markets. 

Today a large part of our success is derived from our "Build, Operate, Manage" approach to local distribution services. By putting warehousing and fulfillment services where our clients need them, we make it possible for small and medium-sized businesses to enjoy all the advantages of bringing products and parts closer to where they are ultimately used without the need to invest in real estate, construction, or costly third-party logistics arrangements.

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.
