Supply Chain Reliability
A reliable Supply Chain ensures that merchandise flows from suppliers to the shelf in an efficient manner. Improving the flow of goods results in improved service to a Retailer, ensuring their customers have the products they need while shopping.
While the need for Supply Chain reliability has long been understood; leading retailers are implementing Supply Chain Reliability programs that drive performance in key supply chain metrics (fill rate and on-time arrival). Penalties are charged to Suppliers on shipments that don’t achieve certain thresholds (early, late and short).
The consequences of non-compliance reach beyond penalties and the administrative costs, having the potential to impact commercial partnerships with Retailers. At the core of Supply Chain Reliability is the need to drive improved collaboration and alignment with Retailers.
