Item Stratification is the process of classifying items based on individual characteristics. The TrueCommerce VMI solution enables you to issue items with individual item stratification codes which then allows you to assign certain positions within supplier warehouses to certain products, e.g faster selling products closer to the entrance of distribution centres to optimise load times.
Item Stratification is the result of a distributor’s efforts to classify inventory into categories that enable the company to stock the right item, in the right quantity, at the right location.
By successfully stratifying stock, companies using TrueCommerce can benefit from:
- Increased fill rate
- Improved customer service levels
