The structure of our distribution division is such that Olympic is able to offer, by far, the most efficient costing and greatest amount of flexibility for our North American customers. Through a network of 40 warehouse locations, our team is able to offer just in time delivery of a wide range of globally sourced wood products directly to our end users.
A key component of our competitive advantage is how we connect our global price discovery and market intelligence to the products that we are able to offer through our distribution network. Since we are sourcing and purchasing from all geographic regions, we’re able to provide a significant strategic advantage over providers who focus on products from a single region.
Through our relationships in the trucking industry, our inventory of products on the ground, leveraging of third-party warehouse solutions and our advanced approach to management, we’re able to provide distribution services at a significantly lower cost structure than our competitors. This combination of efficiency, our vast network of relationships and our global perspective makes Olympic a leader in the North American distribution space.
