Sherwood understands that protecting your channels of distribution is the same as protecting your brand's equity. The product CANNOT end up in the wrong place! That’s why we make sure our client’s define exactly where we can and cannot sell the inventory. We put these “remarketing restrictions” in the agreement and monitor them at all times.
Sherwood will only sell your inventory or asset into channels that have been discussed and pre-approved. Here’s how it works. Sherwood takes title of the asset or inventory upon contract signing. The contract includes strict written guidelines established by the client regarding where the product can and cannot be sold. We make sure approved sub-vendors review the established guidelines as well. Sherwood’s resale guidelines outline exactly where the product will be sold and what the shipping timeline will be.
Sometimes clients prefer to negotiate the sale themselves to the channels/buyers they are already comfortable with. In such cases, Sherwood would own the inventory/asset in title only via the agreement, but the inventory would remain in the client’s warehouse until they shipped it directly to the buyer who would then remit payment directly to Sherwood. This is called a “ship-to-bill-to” purchase order.
Sometimes, due to warehouse congestion or product expiration, the inventory/asset needs to be shipped quickly or the inventory/asset may need to be off premises to be recorded. In such cases, the product can be shipped directly to one of Sherwood’s warehouses before an approved buyer has been identified. Our logistics team will schedule the shipment of the product to one of our warehouses in a timely and efficient manner fulfilling the client’s shipping timeline.
