Some Retail Thoughts
Here are a couple of slides from a recent conference presentation I gave. I think they go some way to showing the different dynamics with retail as far as Supply Chain and Logistics are concerned:
Trade Off Examples. This shows how for most retailers there are a number of key trade offs to be considered. It’s all about total end to end cost, not unit buying costs!
Retail Supply Chain Forum. For most retailers the largest Supply Chain cost is Cost of Goods Sold (COGs). Hence the need to focus on buying ‘well’. But there are a mass of other ‘levers’ that can be pulled and pushed to improve retail supply chains.
