Tackling Shrinkage in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods Supply Chain: Developing a Methodology.

By Adrian Beck, Charlotte Bilby and Paul Chapman


Shrinkage for retailers and suppliers of Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) continues to be a significant problem, one that seems resilient to ameliorative actions. In an effort to respond to the apparent failure of existing approaches to loss prevention, this chapter introduces a ‘process-orientated’ approach to tackling shrinkage. The approach consists of a prescriptive series of seven steps that form a stock loss reduction ‘road map’, together with associated techniques and tools for undertaking each step
