Direct Store Deliveries

Looking at store deliveries sent directly from your supplier.

Direct Store Deliveries

Orridge offers a service whereby these supplier-to-store deliveries can be audited on a routine basis. Introduce this, eliminate the delivery checking in-store and instead accept them on a 'good faith' basis.

Not only will this release labour in your stores to focus on core activities, it will also drive supplier performance as the audits are completed on an entirely random basis, providing authenticity and impartiality.

Our mobile team of auditors will arrive at the store within the given supplier's delivery window. They will be fully equipped with the technology required to instantly feedback the audit results to both you and your supplier. 

In Summary:

  • A random, independent audit sample conducted across your estate.
  • Frees store time to concentrate on other tasks.
  • Provides real-time data to drive supplier performance.
  • Provides a mechanism to extrapolate results and commute claims to suppliers for inaccurate deliveries.
Pick Accuracy

'Customer Availability', 'Sales', 'Shrinkage'. At Orridge, we know that these performance measures matter to you. We offer cost-effective solutions which will support you in improving these performance measures across your entire business. 

Load Adherence

The final hurdle in the logistics operation can often have the most impact. Loading a vehicle for despatch is straightforward, but mistakes can impact store shrinkage and stock availability.

Good Faith Receiving

Good Faith Receiving (GFR) is an audit process which is helping to challenge the convention of retail supply chain management.

Origin Checks

Orridge believes that to provide a full service to our customers, we need to start at the beginning. Our origin checks do precisely that.

Warehouse & Distribution

Orridge understands that warehousing and distribution centres are a different proposition to counting in stores, which is why we provide specialist teams to facilitate timely and complete audits; be it a full warehouse count or perpetual inventory counting.


Orridge is firmly established as a leading stocktaking service provider on a pan-European basis
