Inventory Management & Warehousing

Avnet offers many services geared toward customers that need options based on production volume, global scale and overall cost. Our core services enable customers flexibility in complex supply chain needs.

Electronic Data Interchange

EDI provides customers with a high level of flexibility, speed, and security in the exchange of frequently used business documents -- while at the same time maintaining low costs.

InPlant or OutPlant stores

InPlant stores are one facet of the just-in-time (JIT) manufacturing model used by many customers. The stores, located on customer production facilities, are manned by Avnet personnel and stocked with Avnet franchised components used by that customer.


Inventory and Order Visibility

Supply Chain Central is a web tool that allows Avnet customers to manage their Avnet supply chain 24x7x365. This tool allows customers to get answers to important questions about their Avnet supply chain in real time, around the clock.


Inventory Replenishment

Avnet’s Point-of-Use Replenishment (POURS) program is a family of solutions that implements auto-replenishment processes and shares a common user interface. Using POURS software, customers are able to replenish their components pipeline to ensure the continued flow of parts on the manufacturing floor.



Get early warning about components entering the end-of-life phase and other forms of product lifecycle data to help prevent production disruptions when the lifecycle of an end-product continues beyond the lifecycle of its parts.


Vendor Managed Inventory / Consignment

Avnet leverages its global footprint to offer efficient, cost effective solutions to supplier-related OEM & contract manufacturing inventory management needs. Customers can improve their global reach, avoid redundant infrastructure and improve their own customer service while leaving inventory management to Avnet.
