Optimizing your GNFR Supply Chain
The goals of optimizing the Goods-Not-for-Resale (GNFR) supply chain include:
By identifying and tracking GNFR expenses, a retail business can identify areas where cost savings can be made, such as by negotiating better prices with suppliers or standardizing purchasing processes.
By implementing an inventory management system, a retail business can track inventory levels and identify areas of overstocking or stockouts, which can lead to cost savings and improve efficiency.
Improve supplier performance
By implementing performance metrics such as On-Time-In-Full (OTIF) and implementing a continuous improvement process, a retail business can improve supplier performance, leading to more reliable delivery schedules, reducing stockouts, and increasing customer satisfaction.
By optimizing the GNFR supply chain, a retail business can increase efficiency in areas such as purchasing and transportation and logistics, which can lead to cost savings and improved performance.
By having a centralized data repository and monitoring system, the business can have a better visibility of the supply chain, which can help to make informed decisions, anticipate issues and plan ahead.
By having better visibility and control over the supply chain, a retail business can mitigate the risks associated with GNFR.
Optimizing GNFR Supply Chain to improve overall performance and profitability
In summary, the goals of optimizing the GNFR supply chain are to reduce costs, improve inventory management, improve supplier performance, increase efficiency, increase visibility and mitigate risks. By achieving these goals, a retail business can improve its overall performance and profitability.
