Bulk purchase: According to the demand and the supplier's discount policy, reasonably arrange bulk purchases to obtain more competitive prices.
A chemical company's wholesale purchase volume of Trichloroisocyanuric Acid is 100 tons per month. After negotiating with several suppliers, it signed a long-term supply contract with two suppliers. Through bulk purchases, the price of Trichloroisocyanuric Acid per ton has been reduced from 5,000 yuan to 4,800 yuan, which is a saving of 200 yuan per ton compared with the market price, and an annual saving of about 240,000 yuan.
2. E-procurement platform

Automated procurement process: Automate the procurement process through the electronic procurement platform, reduce the use of manual operations and paper documents, improve efficiency and save time.
A chemical company discovered more suppliers of Trichloroisocyanuric Acid by registering on an e-procurement platform, and by comparing prices and conditions, selected a new supplier whose price was more competitive than the previous supplier. In addition, the company has adopted the automated procurement process of the electronic procurement platform, which has shortened the entire process time from inquiry to payment by 50%, significantly improving procurement efficiency.
3. Supply chain collaboration and predictive analysis

Predictive analysis: use historical data and market trends to conduct predictive analysis, rationally arrange procurement plans, and avoid additional costs caused by inventory backlogs and emergency purchases.
A water treatment company established a supply chain coordination mechanism with a supplier of Trichloroisocyanuric Acid to share sales and inventory data on a regular basis. By sharing data, companies and suppliers can more accurately predict market demand and rationally arrange procurement plans. The results of the predictive analysis showed that the proper adjustment of the monthly purchase volume could save money and time by avoiding overstocking and emergency purchases.
Through strategies such as supply chain optimization, utilization of e-procurement platforms, and supply chain collaboration and predictive analytics, buyers can save time and money and increase efficiency in wholesale procurement of Trichloroisocyanuric Acid. The above case studies show that the application of these strategies can help buyers obtain significant cost and time advantages. Buyers should formulate appropriate strategies according to their own needs and market conditions, and continuously optimize and adjust them to improve the effect of wholesale procurement.
