Best Buy is consistently improving and streamlining processes within our supply chain. We have engaged an initiative aimed at improving the accuracy and integrity of the item data collected in our systems. As a part of this focus, we accept new item data from Vendors using one of two standard methods - Via the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) or via a web-based Product Information Management (PIM) system.

Getting Started

As a condition to accepting a Best Buy purchase order, you as a vendor agree to the terms of the Ship It Right logistics and shipping compliance program. The terms of the program may be updated by Best Buy from time to time as posted on www.extendingthereach.com

Ship It Right Summary:

The Ship It Right program is a logistics and shipping program that measures inbound shipping at points where vendors can make improvements to performance based on the supply chain points within vendor control. This means that Best Buy vendor partners can directly impact performance whether through management of carriers (prepaid) or by having product ready upon carrier pickup (collect). The program goal is to provide actionable information to vendors to help improve on-time and product availability, reducing customer disappoints.

The Ship It Right program has four key metrics:

  • Late/Early %
  • PO Modify %
  • Auto Cancel %
  • Unscheduled PO Count
