What is VMI?2021-02-25T15:11:47+00:00

Vendor managed inventory (VMI) is a system where manufacturers outsource inventory management to a third party.

The third-party vendor takes full responsibility for the optimisation and management of the customer’s inventory. The vendor ensures that the right parts, fixings, consumables, material, and other products are delivered to the right locations at the right time, providing timely stock replenishment in-line with the predefined delivery schedule.

What should I consider when setting up a VMI system?2021-02-25T15:08:32+00:00

Look for a VMI partner that takes the time to understand your unique requirements, including material flow and the type and number of parts needed. A VMI system tailored to the exact requirements of your business will produce the best results.

When adopting a VMI system, remember that the service may need to evolve as the company grows. Choosing a VMI supplier that provides flexible VMI systems, good lines of communication, and access to a global market means that the partner can scale its service based on your needs, driving continuous improvement.

What are the benefits of using VMI?2021-02-25T15:08:59+00:00

Vendor consolidation can significantly simplify inventory management. With TFC VMI, manufacturers will have a dedicated account manager, but will also benefit from the knowledge and expertise of a multi-disciplinary team.

TFC VMI allows manufacturers to:

  • Streamline their supply chain through vendor rationalisation
  • Continually monitor stock usage, allowing for adjustments as necessary
  • Ensure continuity of supply, mitigating risk to the business
  • Purchase parts for lower prices from the VMI provider due to its industry relations
  • Reduce direct and indirect costs through process improvements and product standardisation
  • Free up valuable warehouse & storage space & reallocate a workforce
  • Manufacture quality assured products with full batch traceability knowing TFC have quality approved your requirements before supplying them
  • Ensure end to end supply chain management
  • Benefit from a VMI solution that is tailored to their specific needs
