Defective goods inventory (DGI)

DGI stands for Defective Goods Inventory and is a term used in the logistics industry. When products are received by a warehouse, they are often checked for damage or defects.

  • If any issues are found, the products are put into DGI.
  • This inventory is then tracked and monitored until the issue is resolved.
  • Products that are put into DGI may be returned to the supplier, sent to a different warehouse, or scrapped altogether.

While DGI can be an inconvenience for companies, it is important to track and monitor it closely. Damaged or defective products can cause serious problems for businesses and can even lead to financial disaster.
