DOMESTIC APPLIANCES LOGISTICS

Domestic Appliances are one of the most demanding sectors when it comes to local warehousing and distribution logistics due to fact that they are totally dependent on the rigid global supply chains of the multinational suppliers.
The difficulty in frequent replenishment from overseas (if such option exists), the high value of the goods, the fragility, and the awkwardness of the packages (compared to other main stream retail sectors) comprise a big challenge for 3rd Party Logistics Operators.
                                     

The Cyprus Domestic Appliances Environment

Cyprus differs from the major European markets:
 
  • Cyprus is an island and as a result the continental short trucking transit times are not achievable and sea carriers’ services are always intervening along with their additional risk elements

  • 98% of the businesses in Cyprus are small and medium size enterprises. This fact is also reflected in the domestic appliances sector at the POS (Point Of Sale) side. As a result, the supply chain has more frequent orders of smaller quantities to many POSs (Points of Sale) thus adding to the logistics costs

  • Infrastructure at the POSs is poor to non-existing in terms of receiving facilities. This extends the time spend at the POS therefore reflected in the logistics cost
