As much as 13% of all products are significantly or critically damaged by the time they reach the shelf. By understanding the supply chain end-to-end we can improve the situation.

Manufacturers and retailers have worked together in many areas to reduce total levels of shrinkage. However, new research suggests that so far they have been unaware of high levels of packaging damage.

Guía de Trazabilidad de Productos Envasados

La trazabilidad a lo largo de la cadena de suministros se sirve de las herramientas utilizadas en los proceso de expedición y recepción de mercancías para conservar aquellos datos necesarios para conseguir un mayor control de las mercancías. Ambas prácticas son complementarias.

La Optimización de la Expedición y Recepción de mercancías se basa en agilizar la entrada y salida de mercancías de almacenes mediante sistemas automáticos y fiables que repercuten en la operativa en toda la cadena de suministros.

Además, en la mayoría de casos, la falta de fiabilidad de la información intercambiada en las transacciones y su desconexión de los flujos físicos aumentan en gran medida dichas ineficiencias. Sumado a ello, la necesidad de garantizar la trazabilidad de productos envasados de extremo a extremo de la cadena y de forma automática, hace que los procesos de expedición, manipulación y recepción de mercancías queden íntimamente ligados a la información, pues en cada estadio de la cadena logística, los sistemas de información han de ser capaces de generar y/o gestionar toda la información de trazabilidad.

La implantación de la presente guía permite a fabricantes, distribuidores y operadores logísticos realizar los procesos expedición y recepción respectivamente utilizando los estándares GS1 de identificación de mercancías e intercambio electrónico de documentos EDI-EANCOM®, ganando en eficiencia y sentando las bases para conseguir trazabilidad de productos envasados.

The 2003 ECR Europe publication Shrinkage – A Collaborative Approach to Reducing Stock Loss in the Supply Chain stated that: ‘There is an increasing recognition of the scale and extent of the problem of shrinkage in the FMCG sector. In addition, some of the consequences of shrinkage, such as out of stocks and restricted product availability, impact directly upon shopper satisfaction. Reducing shrinkage can also increase sales’.

That report promoted the adoption of the ‘Shrinkage Road Map’ – a simple but effective methodology designed to deliver real benefits to the companies who use it to tackle their shrinkage problems. The report also set out the importance of incorporating this approach into a shrinkage reduction strategy that is itself fully integrated into the overall corporate policy of the company; thus giving shrinkage management the same weight and importance as other functions within the business such as sales, distribution and marketing....

The UK has been one of the countries at the forefront of developing new secondary packaging solutions to improve in-store efficiency. Sometimes this is called Shelf Ready Packaging although SRP is a subset of the full range of possible solutions known as Retail Ready Packaging or RRP.

A definition of the different classes of RRP is available here: Retail Ready Packaging Defined

From 2006 to 2008 ECR UK produced a series of guidelines and interactive tools to help promote end to end supply chain efficiency by finding the right solution for each product and considering both cost and environmental impact.

There are ten guides in total and all can be downloaded for free from the ECR UK section of the IGD website.

Cette enquête a été réalisée dans le cadre d'un groupe de travail réunissant des adhérents d'ECR France ainsi que des transporteurs. 63 questionnaires ont été exploités : 25 provenant de l'industrie, 27 du secteur du transport et 11 de la distribution. Son objectif est d'identifier, auprès des trois types d'acteurs, les pratiques concernant :
- le transport (les modes, les difficultés, le remplissage des camions, …) ;
- les unités d'expédition (palettes hétérogènes, palettes sandwichs, …) ;
- les supports de palettisation (mode de gestion, échange de palettes, …) ;
- les emballages secondaires (standards européens, emballages et déchets d'emballage,
RTI, …) ;
- le marquage.
