Consolidation

Merchandise will be billed and shipped to Portland Merchandise Corp. and Portland will consolidate all orders placed with the various vendors in its own warehouse or satellite warehouses depending on the category quantity or routing of the merchandise. Multiple vendor orders are usually consolidated in the New York city warehouse, where goods are inspected to assure conformity with the orders placed at the time of purchase.

Orders are systematically followed up to assure timely delivery of purchased merchandise. This becomes particularly important in these areas of the world with specific selling seasons.
