Supply Management Tesco- Case study Replenishment- using the same suppliers along with DCs and vehicles supplying to all stores, hence smaller inventory (?). The items in Tesco are procured from the same suppliers and bulk supplies result in higher discounts Milk runs- one truck collecting stock from different suppliers and whilst delivering to the big stores also supply the little ones to make them also be profitable. Tracing back by the group its supply journey of a coca cola can realising that there is far too much handling time involved in producing the coca can/bottle and by reducing this it can save costs. Tesco managed to reduce their touch pointes for drinks from 170 to 20. After this discovery Tesco started studying ways in which ‘muda’ (unnecessary waste that can be easily removed) can be removed from the company. CR- continuous replenishment system- products replaced immediately triggered by selling data. Usage of dollies to reduce the handling of goods and streamlining their flow.
