2. Utilize the “Ready to Ship” Property Appropriately
We have also inserted a “Ready to Ship” feature. It allows you to identify distributors who can ship products immediately. This property plays a unique role in particular circumstances, such as Coronavirus Outbreak, when a lot of Chinese manufacturers are not available to produce and ship inventory.
3. Make Use of the Latest Transaction Detail Effectively
Besides, we have also added the “Latest transaction” detail in the result list along with other information, including sales, price ranges, and others. Using this, you can figure out who among the available suppliers can deliver your order in the least possible time.
