Reduce returned goods by 15%

Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) ensures overstocking never occurs by monitoring distributor/retailer stock levels and sales. Subsequently, this means less pressure on warehouses and fewer goods being returned to suppliers.


“When we considered all of the functional, technical and service aspects of what we wanted in a new generation VMI platform, TrueCommerce was the simple choice. They are the clear leader in VMI, handling a number of large CPG customers, processing millions of SKUs and managing thousands of locations around the world. ”

The rise of omnichannel retail, including drop-shipping, “fast and free” shipping and other ordering options enable trading partners to easily share inventory data to create a lean, demand-driven supply chain.
