Big box retailers rely heavily on vendors to help their operations run smoothly. In retail distribution, effectively managing vendor relationships is a vital component of a supply chain, and vendor compliance is a key aspect of that. Most big retailers like this have established vendor compliance policies to help reduce costs, increase the speed of order processing and improve the customer experience. If your business frequently ships to big box retailers, you need to comply with their vendor requirements to avoid facing steep penalties.
Retail vendor compliance policies usually include requirements, expectations and penalties regarding service standards, delivery dates, product quality, purchase orders, paperwork requirements, and more. In order to comply with these requirements, it is vital for you to understand these policies and what is expected of you.
Supply Chain Compliance
Supply chain compliance can be challenging in the supply chain and procurement industry. Many companies are placing high importance on compliance to avoid any supply chain fraud or brand damage.
