- Hear how logistics companies are having to adapt to reach these goals,
- See overall trends in the industry, as well as how companies are adapting, and
- Have a chance to get your questions answered by experts who work for suppliers, transportation, consulting firms, and more!
What is OTIF?
OTIF is a compliance program that Walmart implements to create a better supply chain. The retailer designed the program to ensure that products are on the shelf when they need to be and where they need to be.
There are two key factors that determine a Walmart Supplier OTIF Score. If the supplier was:
- Did the cases delivered arrive on time at the distribution center, or were all cases ready for pick up by the appointment time?
- Did Walmart receive all of the cases ordered?
If a supplier happens to miss either of these criteria less than 98% of the time, then they can face hefty fines.
One study found that less than 40% of Walmart suppliers made their OTIF goals in 2019, and Walmart estimates that poor In-Full performance accounted for $1.7 billion in lost sales during the 2018 fiscal year. This suggests that not hitting the OTIF goals can have major impacts for both a supplier and the end consumer.
