What is stock management?

Inventory management is a key function in the supply chain and corporate logistics. It involves planning, organising and controlling product flows to ensure that stock levels are sufficient to meet customer needs, while minimising the costs associated with holding stock.

This involves monitoring inventory levels, forecasting future demand, placing orders with suppliers, receiving products and storing them properly. Inventory management is essential to avoid overstocking, stock-outs and the costs associated with holding unnecessary stock.

Stock clearance management

Stock clearance management is the process of planning and executing the sale of products in stock at reduced prices. This involves determining which products need to be de-stocked, setting selling prices, planning sales channels and monitoring remaining stock levels.

Managing destocking is important for freeing up storage space, avoiding the costs associated with holding unnecessary inventory, and generating cash for the company. It can also be used to stimulate sales by offering attractive prices to customers.

The impact of destocking on the environment

Destocking can have a positive impact on the environment by avoiding the destruction of unsold stock, which can generate waste and contribute to pollution.

By selling unsold products at reduced prices, companies can also encourage customers to buy existing products rather than produce new items, which can reduce demand for the raw materials and energy needed to manufacture them.

Inventory management can be very complex for companies, and if destocking does not clear all unsold inventory, it may be discarded or destroyed. This practice can have negative consequences for the environment and society, generating waste and contributing to the waste of resources.

The AGEC law and destocking

The AGEC law or anti-waste law for a Circular Economy is a French law adopted in 2020 that aims to reduce waste and encourage thecircular economy in France.

The AGEC Act contains a number of measures, including theban on the destruction of unsold non-food items,these include the introduction of a deposit system for plastic bottles and cans, a reduction in the use of single-use plastics, the promotion of eco-design and product repair, and the fight against programmed obsolescence. The AGEC law aims to promote a more sustainable economy and reduce the environmental impact of production and consumption.

The AGEC law has an impact on stock clearance management, as it prohibits the destruction of unsold non-food items. This means that companies are obliged to find alternative ways of managing their unsold stock, rather than throwing it away or destroying it. Companies can choose to donate or gift their unsold products to local charities or associations, or sell them to wholesalers or retailers at reduced prices. This can encourage companies to adopt more sustainable inventory management practices and reduce their environmental impact.
