How C-Stores Can Improve Operations With Data Sharing

The webinar will discuss how retailers and suppliers can use joint planning and data sharing to improve certain logistics.

August 25, 2022

ALEXANDRIA, Va.—C-store operators are facing many challenges. The pandemic, e-commerce growth and the war in Ukraine have caused broad disruptions across the supply chain. Price inflation has been a key impact for c-stores and suppliers, and out-of-stocks represent a major challenge as well, with an impact on sales, satisfaction and loyalty.

To address these challenges, NACS worked with Coresight Research on a survey of large fast-moving consumer goods retailers and suppliers. Key findings of the survey include: 

  • 41% of suppliers and retailers reported that out-of-stocks/low on-self availability is a challenge and a major driver of customer dissatisfaction and lost sales.
  • 46% say lack of centralized data collaboration platform is a limitation.
  • 51% of suppliers plan to buy data from retailers to improve supply chain management. 

NACS will host a free webinar on how c-stores and suppliers use joint planning and data sharing to address out-of-stocks, improve supply chains and gain competitive advantage.

The webinar, “How Data Sharing Addresses C-Store Out-of-Stocks and Supply Chain Issues,” takes places Tuesday, September 13 at 2 p.m. EDT.
