stores each week.

Weekly Vendor Forecast
 Sales forecast available to all vendors; order forecast
available for product flowing through RDC’s
 Allows vendors to pull sales, purchase order and shipment
forecasts on a weekly basis by RDC
 Updated every week
 There is a 26 week and 52 week view of the forecast that you
can access on Lowes Link.
 Full Webcast Training that all vendors should go thru.

Replenishment
Channel
Flow and Inventory
FTL vs LTL
Based on the volume we will purchase from you weekly drives whether we should order
as FTL or LTL. The initial forecast is what drives if we order as FTL or LTL. After 2 to 3
months we will review the business again using the actual’s to ensure the right decision
was made.
Channel
• 1XD = cross dock. This means that you will receive one PO per week with a ship too
location of our Milton DC #1469.
• OXD = Stocked at DC. This means that you will receive one PO per week with a ship
too location of our Milton DC #1469. We will hold a limited amount of stock in the DC
to handle store demand.
• With both the OXD or 1XD channels we would order in pallets but we may ship out to
store in cases.
Inventory
We will not be holding more than 4 to 6 weeks of supply in our network. Due to the
unknown sales potential of these new programs our expectation is that the vendor
holds 12 weeks of forecast in their facility to react to demand.
