FIFO SYSTEMS: WHAT IS THE FIFO STORAGE METHOD?

Inventory management can be enhanced with a dynamic and reliable FIFO system.


Businesses that don’t have an established FIFO storage method run the risk of bleeding money and operating inefficiently. For product-oriented businesses, a reliable FIFO system is of the utmost importance.

As one of four inventory accounting practices, the FIFO storage method assumes goods your company acquired first are sold, used, or disposed of first.

Having a reliable FIFO system is critically important for companies that sell perishable goods, such as grocery distribution firms or food service companies.

There are three important reasons your company should deploy a FIFO storage system to warehousing and storage systems:

  • Proactive inventory management. Not only does a FIFO system ensure inventory you purchased first is sold first, but it improves the accuracy of future inventory orders, supports a well-organized warehouse, and helps you meet market demand quickly.
  • Improved customer service. Your frequent customers need to know that they are always receiving your merchandise on a FIFO basis. Even with durable goods, no one wants to sell dated products.
  • Reduces cost and reverse logistics. Face it: any product available on the market at some point in time will be returned for one reason or other. A good FIFO system can reduce inventory gluts, and in turn, lower the expense of reverse logistics either internally or with your supply chain management partner.
