Supply Chain Services

Providing answers to modern-day retail questions.

Orridge Supply Chain Services offers stock counting & stock accuracy audits at every link of the supply chain

A Common Theme

In the modern world, retailing is no longer about bricks and mortar. There are more retail channels than ever before. We at Orridge hear a lot about how small things in the end-to-end stock management process have a knock-on effect further down the supply chain. To analyse a complex supply chain’s efficiency, it’s helpful to start at a point that all concerned agree as accurate.

Supply Chain Services is a variety of targeted audit solutions by Orridge. We have the expertise to ensure stock delivery accuracy is improved throughout your unique supply chain.


We’ll start by gaining an understanding of the components that drive your stock from supplier through to the sales floor. We can then talk about the challenges.

Identify Areas of Concern

You’ll probably have an idea of where your weak supply chain links are, but no hard evidence to validate this. Often there are various issues that contribute to a larger problem. Once the most likely areas of concern have been identified the next step is to find a solution which will mitigate them.


You’ll reasonably expect investment in Orridge to lead to positive change. With this in mind, an inexpensive start to the process can begin with a data collection exercise at strategic points in the supply chain; we can then assess where more concentrated activity is worthwhile.

Our consultative approach means that our fully flexible audits are carried out in the right place and at the right time from the outset.

Being independent of your business adds credibility to the results and we will work with you and your distribution teams in fixing systemic issues in your receipt and delivery operation.


We aim to be of strategic value to you. One of the advantages of using Orridge is our flexibility, particularly in our reporting methodology. Reporting can be provided to you in a variety of ways, but always in a timely and easy-to-understand way.

Our Services

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.


Perpetual Inventory Checks

Orridge understands that warehouse stocktakes are not always possible due to the size, scale and complexity of your warehouse. This is why we provide a Perpetual Inventory Audit service.


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.


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.


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
