Results of the Annual Distribution Centre Survey – revealed!: Steve Teatum – Group Head of Loss Prevention, Next

PRESENTATION

Make sure not to miss out on some of the most important benchmarking data you will ever see to help manage risk in your Distribution Centres (DCs). Following Steve’s presentation at Retail Risk – Leicester of the interim results (based on retailer participation with more than £70 Billion in annual sales), the final results of this ground-breaking Survey will be available to participants at Retail Risk – London 2020.

The results of this Survey are the culmination of one of the most important piece of research in recent times – one that was recognised at this year’s Fraud Awards by the independent panel of retailer judges. The scope and nature of the Survey was agreed by the Steering Committee, made up of six retailers/logistics specialists including Steve Teatum of Next, Tim Edwards from JD Sports Fashion, Bruce Duncan from Matalan, John Ferguson from Hermes, Jo Day from Amazon and Mark Crowley from John Lewis. The purpose of the Survey is to provide every retailer that takes part with a suite of information against which to benchmark their DC performance in key risk management areas. The Survey answers key questions such as:

  1. What is the average level of shrink on online businesses?
  2. Which post code areas suffer the most DC crime?
  3. How big a problem is organised crime in DCs?
  4. What are the most cost effective entry and exit procedures?
