When does demand dictate it is time for a spot buy versus standard replenishment?

April 4th, 2014

Weather and other natural disasters can dictate that the opportunity is right for a spot buy even when you already have a contract in place?

Believe it or not I recently visited a store of a major retailer whose shelves looked just like this (not this picture) but unfortunately looked much the same. To me that equals a broken procurement department, a broken supply chain and maybe even a broken company as well as  a huge opportunity for a huge spot buy with local suppliers if they want to resolve the issue quickly. The actual name and location are being omitted here to protect the guilty.
