Warehouses & DCs Will Cost Manufacturers Up to 3% Profit Margin Loss with an Inability to Give Walmart Product On-time, In Full

On-time, in-full scores for Wal-Mart’s top 75 suppliers -- including  Unilever -- had been as low as 10 percent. Not one had reached the 95 percent long-term target, hurting the retailer's ability to improve product availability to compete with Amazon, which provides consumers with the products they want, when they want it at the price they want it. The retailer is losing an estimated $1B due to product unavailability as products are not being shipped on time, in full or products are arriving too early cluttering back rooms slowing time-to-shelf.
