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

Beck, Adrian, Bilby, Charlotte and Chapman, Paul (2003) Tackling Shrinkage in the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods Supply Chain: Developing a Methodology. Security Journal, 16 (2). pp. 61-75.

Abstract

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.
