Forward Stocking

Forward Stocking Services

Essintial’s Forward Stocking Locations (FSLs) serve as mini-warehouses close to our customers’ locations that help us meet your service level agreements, reduce transportation costs and control distributed inventory. Our FSL network is built to be scalable with the ability to add FSL locations on-demand based on customer needs.
