Myers Tire Supply Distribution Inc. has partnered with Apex Supply Chain Technologies to bring automated dispensing solutions to its customers. The MTS Xpress Vending Program will provide Myers customers with a secure, accurate, real-time way to manage and control their high-cost, high-use and mission-critical inventory items.

“By placing Apex vending machines directly at the point-of-use, we are providing a system where our customers can better optimize their inventory,” says Todd Smith, vice president and general manager distribution segment. “When our customers can rely on important tools and equipment to be there every time they’re needed, eliminating stock-outs and supply interruptions, the shop’s work will move faster and more jobs will finish each week.”

The MTS Xpress Vending Program leverages Apex exclusive cloud-based Trajectory Enterprise Technology Platform to provide Myers and Myers’ customers with real-time information and automated replenishment, based on customer-set parameters. Parameters can include usage by job, work order, cost center or any other variable the customer chooses.

Myers will offer this program to its partner tire dealers, automobile dealerships, retreaders and commercial fleet operators. The machines will initially be provided to help customers better manage inventory of their tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS).
