There is an art to ensuring you have the right level of stock to ensure consistent supply. One of the biggest costs in the industry is having too much stock, creating MLOR, write off and clearance challenges, or having too little stock driving missed sales opportunities and out of stocks. Our demand planning and inventory control function works with both local and international manufacturers to ensure there are the right insights to manage efficient supply.
A vendor replenishment planner (VRP) or Integrated Supply Planner (ISP) is an Inventory Controller that is based in a retailers head office that manages collaboration between a vendor and the retailer. The benefit in this model is that it gives the brand owner greater access to insights within the retailer to ensure there is stock in the right place at the right time.
Developed over many years in the industry, Trade Partners has a global network of manufacturers to help brand owners and retailers source products where they see a gap in the market. We help connect people and businesses through our network.
