Temu offers Next-Gen Manufacturing (NGM) to help retailers and marketplace sellers increase visibility of demand so that they can improve their product fit and match market conditions. By connecting sellers and buyers directly, NGM aims to shorten the supply chain and improve interactions between buyer and seller, so that upstream manufacturers can be more responsive to the changing needs of the downstream consumer.
NGM is designed to go deeper into the supply chain by getting involved before the product is manufactured. By helping manufacturers gain greater understanding and insight into what consumers need and want, NGM seeks to help producers design the right products, manufacture them in the right quantity and deliver them at the right time. This design-to-delivery optimization aims to go beyond current supply chain optimization efforts and deliver significant cost savings due to improved matching of demand and supply.
