Highly competitive, expen-sive, inefficient, and filled with service glitches and redundancy – no, I am not talking about body shops. I am referring to the supply chain that distributes paint, materials, shop supplies, and more. to body shops throughout North America. Depending upon which jobber a shop might choose, the actual delivery and service can be inconsistent. There are wagon peddlers and single product salesmen lumped into the same bucket as businesses with warehouses, fleets of delivery trucks and an army of sales and support people. They are all referred to as Jobbers, specifically, Paint, Body, and Equipment (PBE) Jobbers. Several thousand SKU’s and a nearly endless combination of primers, base-coats and clears fill a pipeline that is in dire need of improvement. Until now, there was little a shop could do to select a qualified jobber who carries a certain type or brand of product other than by a trial and error and a painstakingly inefficient process!
