Where is Walmart SQEP Today?

Walmart launched its Supplier Quality Excellence Program (SQEP) earlier this year. At the time, the company planned a phased rollout and a penalty structure. Many things have changed, so where is Walmart SQEP today?

That’s the focus of this week’s podcast (click the PLAY button above to listen!). We’re joined by two of our Walmart experts who help Walmart suppliers with supply chain and SQEP issues each week: Joel Graham, Director of Retail Link® & Sam’s Club Insights, and Terry Clear, Director of Replenishment & Sales Insights.

Joel and Terry host SQEP seminars each month for Walmart suppliers. These live Zoom sessions go through SQEP expectations, penalties, and how to improve your supply chain.
