Established in 1959, Midland Radio is a global leader in two-way radio and weather radio technology. Serving the off-road, agriculture, camping, RV, fish and hunt, ski and snowboard, business, and emergency preparation communities, Midland Radio provides reliable communication for every adventure.
Midland Radio partnered with Channel Key to help manage and scale the brand’s fast-paced growth on Amazon. With the company generating an 8-figure sales volume on the platform, Channel Key suspected the likelihood of missed revenue due to Amazon-related inventory errors.
Channel Key connected Midland Radio with Seller Investigators, an all-in-one audit and recovery solution helping over 1,000 FBA Sellers recover over $1 million per month in reimbursements for lost & damaged inventory and shortages.
Together, Channel Key and Seller Investigators developed a comprehensive marketplace strategy to identify and recover money owed to Midland Radio, hold Amazon accountable for inventory mismanagement, and improve overall profitability for the company.

Midland Radio was not positioned to allocate internal resources to hold Amazon accountable for inventory leakage. Under Channel Key’s guidance, Seller Investigators performed a free audit that included the maximum lookback period allowed by Amazon – 9 months for Missing Inbound Shipments and 18 months for Lost/Damaged in the Warehouse.
Seller Investigators immediately identified losses totaling $153,319. After launching a full-scope investigation, Seller Investigators filed 596 individual cases addressing nearly 4,000 missing, lost, or damage units. In total, Channel Key’s partnership with Seller Investigators helped recover $528,540 in reimbursement fees for Midland Radio.
