Dead stock

Supply chain flashcard on Dead stock. Dead stock is a type of inventory that, for various reasons, can't be sold at a base price to regular customers. 'The old collection is now dead stock. Tell them to liquidate it!' Is is a situation when stock becomes a financial burden rather than an opportunity. 'The carrying cost of this dead stock are insane! Write it off now!' An image depicts two warehouse clerks in yellow jackets. They are standing on a landfill polygon watching how an excavator is pushing a pallet with goods into a pit. The clerks are with naked heads holding their safety helmets in their hands behind them. At the bottom there is a call to action: The financial risks of dead stock should be part of your inventory policy.
