Beyond the Merchandise: Victories in Retail Indirect Procurement

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 11:00 AM EDT / 15:00 GMT

For major retailers, the procurement of not-for-resale spends is a very critical area for the business: Effective indirect procurement strategy and results directly impact sales profitability, successful store operations, merchandise availability, and supply chain efficiency.

There are many complexities involved in the strategic sourcing of facilities spends, transportation and distribution services, and corporate services. Store networks involve often hundreds, even thousands, of locations and are constantly evolving with store openings, closings, and format changes – having many regional and format preferences. Seasonality puts pressure on securing transportation service commitments from carriers and for store facilities support services. Corporate initiatives to drive greater supplier diversity, sustainability and “green” practices, and increased margins add even more challenges.
