Case Study –
Managing Global Inventory & Exports

Managing global inventory and mixed container exports across 14 countries.


One of the largest operators of membership warehouse clubs in Central America and the Caribbean needed to manage retail buying, inventory planning and global logistics for three product categories across 24 clubs in 14 countries.


  • Buying entailed attending international trade shows to select products and negotiate directly with vendors.
  • Optimized and managed inventory planning for 24 clubs in 14 countries on JD Edwards ERP software, to ensure the right product and the right quantity, arrived on time.
  • Managed global logistics cost and time in transit at the product level for each store; ensuring the best trade options were used by analyzing 10 weeks of inventory levels and determining when to replenish stock and factor in seasonality, spikes and trade routes.


Effective and efficient buying, planning and logistics led to a reduction in landed cost, an increase in profit margin and fewer out of stock situations.
