Unlike distributors, wholesalers often sell directly to consumers by buying massive quantities of product from manufacturers and selling in bulk at low prices.
Other wholesalers may work with smaller distributors, manufacturers, and retailers to provide drop-ship services, storage, order fulfillment, and other outsourced contract services.
ERP requirements for wholesalers often include:
- Blanket Purchase Orders
- Advanced WMS Features
- B2B and B2C Commerce
- Service Management
- Warehouse Transfers
