The aim of the renewal is to separate the management of product’s life cycle and logistic life cycle.
Supplier will delist the product in the Partner Network `Product change´ -> `Delisting of the product´ (in the end of the sheet). Supplier chooses the reason for delisting from the menu. If proper reason can't be found from the menu, `other reason´ can be chosen and additional information (maximum 100 marks) can be written to the field.
Please note that delisting the product in Partner Network is irreversible and comes into effect immediately.
1. Products distributed through a warehouse hotel
The product is always delisted through the Partner Network, even if there is stock left in the warehouse. Products can be distributed as long as there is stock in the warehouse. When all the stock is distributed from the warehouse, the warehouse hotel will send an e-mail to the Material flow control center (MOK) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Headline of the email needs to include following information: product number, product name and word ‘termination’. Based on the email from the warehouse hotel, the Material flow control center will end the logistical lifecycle of the product.
2. Alko's import service products and products stored in Alko's central warehouse
The product is always delisted through the Partner Network. Alko will end product’s logistical life cycle when all the stock is distributed from the warehouse.
3. Sale-to-order selection products delivered either directly to the shops or through Alko's central warehouse
Products that are delivered to Alko's central warehouse or directly from the supplier’s stock to the shop, the logistical lifecycle of the product will immediately end when the supplier makes the delisting in the Partner Network.
4. Seasonal selection products and specialties
If the stock is distributed from the supplier’s warehouse before the seasonal product’s period or specialty period is over, the lifecycle of the product will be ended as described above. In other cases, Alko will delist the seasonal or specialty product after the season or specialty period is over unless the product is not transferring to the other selection according to Listing instructions.
