Ever-changing legislation, supply-chain shortages, and emerging competition can present hurdles for cannabis companies to overcome. Yet, supply chain and cannabis packaging companies play a crucial role in successful business operations. Whether you’re a budding start-up or an established enterprise, supply chain management maximizes the quality and capabilities of your brand’s production lifecycle.
A supply chain company that has the resources and vision to pivot operations and deliver results will be needed if you want to scale your business. However, improving your processes and delivering an unparalleled customer experience doesn’t end when a client receives their inventory.
Implementing targeted post-delivery strategies can improve efficiencies, maximize operations, and ensure customer satisfaction. Read on to learn about the post-delivery benefits of working with a cannabis supply chain company like The Calico Group.
Streamlined Retail Fulfillment
Cannabis is a highly intricate industry, and businesses must navigate ever-changing legislation to stay compliant with federal and state laws. In addition, increased demand and pandemic-related supply-chain shortages only amplify the need for malleable supply chain processes.

Outsourcing your fulfillment needs saves your company time and money and ensures your cannabis company can meet growing product demand.
Accurate Warehouse Management
Implementing policies and procedures that maintain regulatory compliance are critical aspects of warehouse management for cannabis products. When it comes to tracking and managing inventory, cannabis retailers face unique challenges. This industry has inventory management needs that traditional systems typically aren’t equipped to handle.
The quality of your inventory management directly impacts your business’s profitability. Proper inventory management is also critical for staying compliant with tax regulations.
From performing product audits to developing inventory management software, a strong warehouse management strategy ensures product quality and delivers key insights about your sales and operational efficiencies. The Calico Group has helped our diverse client base monitor and control order fulfillment as well as procure and organize products.
Overcome the Challenges of Distribution Logistics
Distribution is the most complex part of any supply chain process, and this is particularly true for the cannabis industry. Cannabis demand is definitely on the rise. In fact, the industry is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25.5% between 2022 and 2030. While this explosive growth is great news for cannabis companies, businesses may feel increased pressure to scale accordingly.
When increased demand is coupled with supply chain shortages, companies have to find solutions to overcome these distribution hurdles. Also, non-compliant distribution practices could result in heavy penalties for cannabis brands.
It’s imperative to work with an established cannabis supply chain management company that has the correct licensing and capabilities to navigate varying state regulations.
The Calico Group’s global network allows us to scale verticals and transport products, leveraging a variety of logistical solutions. Our solutions protect product quality, scale operations, and meet consumer demand, all while maintaining compliant distribution practices.
