Walmart OTIF Update 4/9/2018
As Walmart continues their journey to 95% On-Time and In-Full (OTIF) performance, they are making adjustments to benefit their customers and supply chain. On April 9th, 2018, Walmart announced that in order to keep products on the shelves, they are adding a 1 day early delivery option for Dry Grocery and Consumables to be delivered without OTIF fines. This change will go into effect for purchase orders with an MABD (Must Arrive By Date) on or after March 31, 2018.
The chart outlined below reflects the updated OTIF schedule.
Does this change our MABD for POs?
- No. MABDs remain the same. Walmart is simply allowing the carrier to deliver a day earlier at RDCs.
Does this apply to Collect & Prepaid suppliers?
- Yes. It applies to both.
Does this apply to HVDCs or Perishable DCs?
- No. It applies only to deliveries into RDCs.
What DCs does this apply to?
- Only RDCs
