Welcome to September, Walmart suppliers! Finishing up Back to School and gearing up for Holiday can be a stressful time in retail. To top it all off, Walmart has brought back the On Time In Full program!
If your supply chain is struggling, we have a great show for you this week. Our friend Greg Forbis, SVP of Strategy and Business Development for RJW Logistics Group, is back with some great insight.
Greg has a vast background with Walmart Stores and has spent many years working with suppliers on logistics solutions. Though 2020 has been a challenge to say the least, Greg offers excellent advice and strategies for your business on this week’s podcast.
In our discussion with Greg, we ask:
- What factors lead to Walmart bringing the OTIF program back?
- What are the challenges we can anticipate as OTIF comes back for the Holiday season?
- How do the order and inventory review schedules impact sales and in-stock?
- When looking at partnering with a logistics firm like RJW, how is a single-location strategy different from a multi-node network?
Do you already have products in Walmart or Sam’s Club and need help with reporting, e-commerce, OTIF, or an up-coming line review? Our team of experts helps suppliers like you every week!
