“Walmart is one of the multinational retailing corporation located in the United States. The corporation functions as a chain of grocery store, hypermarket and discount department store. The firm was founded in 1962 by Sam Walton and officially incorporated in October 1969. Moreover, the firm engages in the operation of retail, wholesale and other sections all over the world. It’s the largest world organization by revenue whereby it approximately generated four hundred and eighty billion dollars in 2016. The corporation has eleven thousand six hundred and ninety-five stores all over the world. The main products sold by the corporation include electronics, home and furniture, music, clothing, foot wear, toys, jewelry, sporting goods and fitness, health and beauty, grocery, photo finishing and craft supply”
“Additionally, the firm has the following division. Walmart U.S, Walmart international and Sam’s cub global e-commerce. The firm investment outside North America has met mixed reaction. It has highly succeeded in some parts especially in the United Kingdom, china, and South America though it has failed in Germany and South Korea. Furthermore, the firm operates in major cities over the world, and it has established subsidiaries in the following countries Canada, Mexico, Chiles, Central America and many others.”
“The firm mostly operates online where the customer purchases Walmart products through the online platform. The corporation, therefore, has so many computers that are located in every department. The wife routers also help to connect to the internet easily and therefore the wifi connection equipment are provided in most departments.
Walmart is a corporation that is licensed by the government and operates legally, and thus it has policies and guidelines, which ensure the firm operates ethically and does not violate the rule of law. The firm also protects the customers from harmful products and other living organisms. Sam’s club and Walmart are committed to ensuring they provide the customers with affordable, safe and sustainable food products and promoting human treatment of animals. The firm has improved tracking and audit program for pork chain supply, and the suppliers must meet the program requirements. The firm has developed mineral conflict program that guides on how the firm will operate in mineral product business and the products without violating the human rights especially to Democratic Republic of Congo citizens. The program will guide the electronic suppliers so as to avoid illegal business and thus maintain the corporation image.”
“Walmart is a very prominent firm in the world, which distributes different products to the clients in markets. The firm faces very stiff competition from other firms that are almost similar with Walmart organization. Germany grocer Lidl is one of the competitors giving Walmart challenge. Despite these stiff competitions, Walmart brand image has enabled it to perform well in the market, and many consumers still prefer products from the Walmart. Additionally, the firm is known to provide quality products that meet customers’ needs and therefore the firm has achieved to have loyal clients who they depend on and target all the time especially when they produce a new product. The best planning, financial management, marketing and customer care are some of the determinants that affect the competitive competition in the local market.
The Walmart competitive advantage depends on cost leadership. The firm is committed to ensure that the customer purchases products at the affordable prize and improve the lifestyle of the customer. The firm has also introduced business strategy in the following directions. One of the strategies is improving groceries. Walmart attempts to increase its fresh range produce and organic options. Additionally, the firm has also enhanced the flexibility of the shopping experience, which works to integrate its physical stores with the digital business.”
“Tesco Corporation is a British multinational retailer, grocery stores and general merchandise retailer. It has presence in 11 countries and records a revenue of about $67 billion annually. The grocery store is the major brand of this organization and this is why it is a threat to Walmart stores as that is the brand it is struggling to establish. It is important to note that most consumers do not shop in one store, they tend to think that this store is good for this thing and the other one is good for that other thing. In this case, shopper will shop at Walmart but when they need groceries they will go to Tesco and this has undermined the profit levels in the United Kingdom market and countries where Tesco has a strong presence.”
“Wal-Mart stores suited the context of the study as it presents a myriad of issues involving supply chain processes. The Wal-Mart stores constitute one of the major stores in the United States delivering distinct products to customers. Wal-Mart has a longstanding history of attaining the best ranking in terms of revenues. This approach aids in highlighting the major competencies and success factors that have catapulted the stores into attaining success in the highly competitive industry. Considering the chain process in Wal-Mart, comprising of the suppliers, manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers, the store stands out as a perfect example for the analysis of the supply chain process within a company. “
“Considering the above analysis, it is evident that the success of the Wal-Mart stores strongly hinges on the strong supply chain process put in place by the stores. Various elements such as leveraging of technology, training of the members, engaging intermediaries, and managing the supplier sizes ensure that the products are adequately produced and used within the process. Below are some of the impacts of the supply chain on the performance of the Wal-Mart stores.
The first benefit is the quality production. The supply chain process entails quality assessment to ascertain that the products suit the required quality threshold. In the supplier processes, quality of products is assessed vis a vis the set threshold by the quality assurance team. This ensures that only the right product quality is used.
The supply chain process has equally enhanced efficiency in the production process. Each of the processes is closely monitored to ensure that correct quality measures are adhered to. The approach aids in ensuring that consumers are given the desired product quality. The efficiency further ensures that the goods are delivered to the customers within the required timeline. This bridges any demand gap that may exist in the supply chain process leading to customer satisfaction.
Finally, the supply chain ensures proper use of resources. The Wal-Mart stores control the amount of goods produced, supplied, and delivered. Ensuring control of the process aids in proper control of resources allocated for use. This, in turn, ensures that the right amount is produced and supplied to the market in the right manner.”
Organization is key. Remove content that has been repeated as it takes away emphasis on your strong arguments. State headings.
You have a framework but it requires work.
Ensure that APA formatting is applied to all areas of the paper at all times.
