Fresh produce shippers are used to dealing with unique retailer demands getting their product to market. One such challenge, first introduced by Walmart U.S. in 2017, is the retail giant’s on-time in-full (OTIF) policy. As the name indicates, this logistics compliance program requires product to arrive at Walmart’s distribution centers on time and in full. Shipments that arrive early, late, short, or not otherwise as specified in the Purchase Order, are all subject to fines.
