Retail Supply Chain Consulting

Compliance Networks excels in uncovering the hidden value that lies within your supply chain.

We apply a creative mix of technologies and services to facilitate flow in the retail supply chain.

Understanding the full scope of the retail supply chain is critical to maximizing efficiency from both the vendor's and retailer's perspective. A carefully scripted distribution plan combined with a well executed merchandising plan produces a mutually desired result - happy and satisfied customers. As former retailers, we understand the critical importance of an uninterrupted flow of merchandise in successfully executing a merchandising plan. Having worked with hundreds of vendors, we also know the importance of retailers setting and communicating proper expectations to ensure optimal performance.
