Vendor compliance doesn’t have to be complicated
Every retailer has requirements in place to streamline its shipping and receiving processes. And meeting them is key to a vendor’s success. Failure to comply with assigned delivery times, labeling practices and other shipping procedures can result in financial penalties and damaged relationships. But because compliance means different things for each retailer, vendors can struggle to meet the varying conditions of when, where and how they may deliver goods. That doesn’t mean the two are working against each other, though.
