The consumer goods to retail supply chain has clearly been the most prominent and quite arguably the most important sector of the supply chain for decades.
What is the state of retailer-manufacturer supply chain relationships today? Are they getting better or worse – and why?In pursuit of such insights, SCDigest recently conducted a survey of retailers, consumer goods manufacturers and others (academics, consultants) to benchmark where things stand in the consumer goods to retail value chain.
Importantly, we believe this survey can be repeated every other year to track progress – or backsliding – over time.
The survey was promoted to SCDigest readers, along with support from RVCF (Retail Value Chain Federation), which encouraged its members to participate.
In addition, the research was supported by Compliance Networks, a provider of retail vendor performance management solutions.
All told, SCDigest received survey responses from 50 retailers, about 200 consumer goods manufacturers, and 80 from the “other” category. That included many leading companies, a sample of which are listed below.
The following 16 pages will provide you with a detailed report of the results from the 2016 State of the Retailer-Vendor Supply Chain Relationships . Enjoy!
