Business - Wal-Mart to bring in-house some sourcing handled by Li & Fung


(Reuters) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc , the world`s largest retailer, said it has decided to bring in-house some of the product sourcing that has been handled by Direct Sourcing Group (DSG), a unit of Hong Kong`s Li & Fung Ltd . The move to buy more goods directly from factories comes as Wal-Mart, hampered by sluggish sales and profits, looks to squeeze costs out of its supply chain. `We have made a business decision to transfer certain sourcing functions for Wal-Mart in-house, and as such will work collaboratively with DSG to ensure a smooth transition over the next several months,` Wal-Mart said in a statement.
