Strategic Sourcing Guide to Recreational Vehicles Procurement

Overview

A changing ecosystem within the Purchase market also affects the procurement process, cost dynamics and supplier attractiveness for the buyers of Recreational Vehicles. Regulatory changes are taking place more frequently and, in some cases, randomly. It is getting difficult to align procurement with all the new regulations, especially when category managers are responsible for multiple regions with different regulations.

Accident prevention features are more effective and cost friendly then they were even three years ago, opening opportunities to reduce Total Cost of Ownership.

Telematics has found excellent adoption rates the world over and its adoption is only expected to grow more. This is creating challenges for category managers in aligning the specifications to the use of preferred telematics solutions as well as extending procurement activities to this new but still less understood category of products and services.

Recreational Vehicles Procurement Best Practices

It has become imperative for category managers to remain as agile as possible in terms of their procurement practices. However, it is not always easy to quickly spot and implement alternative practices in a category like Recreational Vehicles. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

For example, Instead of customarily fixing the contract length to one or two years, buyers should determine the contract length based on market conditions and their likely impact on cost in future.

Buyers must accumulate essential data across their information systems and suppliers to create benchmarks for cost, quality and service levels for Recreational Vehicles suppliers.

Vehicle replacement cycles is a mechanism used to calculate maintenance and depreciation-related costs associated with a vehicle. Service providers perform such calculations on behalf of buyers. Vehicle replacement cycles enable end-users to follow safety measures and minimize operating costs. These are calculated after a certain mileage or specific years of use. Furthermore, buyers should engage with service providers that offer analysis with respect to fuel consumed as well as provide maintenance and repair services.

Risks in Recreational Vehicles procurement

Recreational Vehicles procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Recreational Vehicles procurement. Some examples include:


  • The rise in awareness about air pollution is forcing buyers to collaborate with service providers that adopt green initiatives. A few of the factors that cause pollution from fleet vehicles are the use of outdated vehicles, inferior quality fuel, and poor maintenance
  • When requirements of the buyers are not absolutely clear or usage patterns are not stable or predictable, suppliers often build in \"cost buffers\" for unforeseen risks due to a lack of complete understanding on buyer's requirements. This increases the risk of overspending on Recreational Vehicles
  • Contract-related risks where unfavorable credit terms may severly penalize buyers for delayed payments or entitle the supplier to demand pre-payments or shorten the payment terms are not very common in the category but they do exist in certain situations where buyers' liquidity or financial health is in question
