Shippers Still Falling Short of Walmart's Relaxed OTIF Targets

Walmart wants suppliers to deliver shipments on time 90% of the time and in full 95% of the time, down from a 98% benchmark set in 2020.

But CPG shippers are not making it — Boston Consulting Group and the Food Marketing Institute study:
  • Q1 2020 (Pre pandemic)  OTIF was  85%
  • Q4 2020 (COVID)  OTIF was  77%  (I thought it was worse than 77%).
In 2023, FourKites says  84% of orders are on time.


Recall that LevelLoad and our sister company, AutoScheduler, can improve OTIF.
