Poll: Has drop-shipping negated the need to hold stock?

Following Misco's decision to shut its warehouse, with the loss of 65 jobs, let us know where your firm stands on the question of whether or not to hold stock, by voting in our poll

Misco announced earlier today that it is to shut its UK warehouse in a move it says is in line with many of its reseller competitors.

CEO Alan Cantwell said the rise of drop-shipping meant its logistics centre in Greenock is now shipping just 400 to 500 parcels daily, despite being purpose-built to ship over 10 times that number. 

If you are a reseller or services firm serving end customers directly, let us know where you stand on the issue by voting in our poll.
