We Solve Your Sourcing Needs
Discover the Tricord advantage over the competition
20% - 30% Cost Savings
Tricord has spent years reducing the overhead in our sourcing structure to make us competitive in our pricing and even bring greater savings to customers who may already be sourcing in low cost countries.
With our Tricord-trained, on-site inspection teams, working alongside (but independently) of our supplier partners, we have developed a robust, in-line, pre-shipping and post-shipping system that has made us the standard for procurement.
Logistics And VMI
Tricord works hand-in-hand with our partners, Lisa Ragan Freight Brokers and B.R. Williams Logistics (inventory management), to make sure our customers never experience a dry supply chain.
