What Is Vendor Compliance?
Retail vendor compliance means understanding exactly what each vendor requires so your product is delivered seamlessly. It also means you’re prepared to deal with and resolve issues effectively and efficiently.
Every retailer has specific, individual requirements to accept goods into their facilities. And you must be able to check all the boxes to be compliant – there’s no middle ground on compliance…it’s all or nothing.
Wholesale Compliance Can Involve:
- Pallets need to be in a specific way
- Certain labels must be on cartons
- Delivery must occur during various time windows
- Specific freight providers are used
- Packing slips look exactly as required
- Special or unique barcodes are on packages
Dropship Compliance Can Involve:
- A packing slip needs a specific logo on it
- Shipping must be done under a particular level of service – I.E., Next Day, 2-day, etc.
- Shipping must be within a given time window
