Long Haul

from internetretailer.com

Bringing goods into retail warehouses from China and other distant lands is a mixed blessing. Retailers are eager to find low-priced overseas manufacturers of consumer electronics, apparel, toys and other goods. But they often are left with little idea as to exactly what will arrive from these manufacturers and when, making it difficult to plan for warehouse space and labor on the receiving end. And when it comes to merchandising and promotional plans that rely on the right goods arriving on time, merchandisers generally have to wait with crossed fingers.
