Inbound Freight

Logistics Term

What’s Inbound Freight?

Inbound freight is bringing raw materials from a supplier or vendor into your business. The raw materials you bring will depend on what your business produces. Inbound freight can involve finished products if you assemble or raw materials if you’re the manufacturer. That’s because inbound freight deals with everything your business needs to make the finished products that you will eventually sell.

Inbound Freight - In The Field

Inbound freight will run well if you have a steady supplier of raw materials needed to produce the final product. You need raw materials to meet your output but not in excess, especially if you don’t have a warehouse to accommodate them. The best way is to do it is to get the raw materials right before you use them to ensure you utilize them fully.
