fill rate


The rate at which customer orders can be filled from existing inventory within the parameters of the order request. For example, if a customer places an order for 10 units of a product, but the current inventory only allows for the immediate shipping of 7 units. The fill rate is 70%. A higher fill rate is usually equated to higher customer satisfaction.
