OIA Global specializes in providing athletic and outdoor industry services and solutions for packaging, warehousing and fulfillment, and transportation needs to meet the industry’s unique demands.
Athletic and outdoor brands face constant change and exacting supply chain challenges. Most brands have a moderate to strong seasonality, a broad supplier footprint, carry a considerable breadth of products, and are continuously introducing new products to the market, growing their SKUs.
Unlike other logistics providers, OIA offers a fully integrated optimization program. We develop industry-specific packaging with superior structural design in order to right-size your carton suite to your product. In turn, we design and supply the appropriate shipping carton suite to maximize the number of SKUs per box and develop load plans to optimize these cartons in an ocean or air container.
OIA optimizes your supply chain starting with your product extending through new product introductions. The result? More units per box, material reduction, product protection, more efficient loading, greater sustainability, and a lower cost per unit. We call this thinking inside the box.
Since broad supplier footprints require brands to shift capacity and capitalize on factory production availability, brands need a logistics partner that has a network, geographic footprint, and supplier relationships in the same territories as network partners. OIA Global is your eyes and ears around the globe.
