    ABSTRACT: This paper looks into the flow and inventory status of the supermarket chains fresh agricultural products, then analyzes the traditional method for the surplus fresh agricultural products or the shortages and its limitations. Innovatively, all the affiliated stores of supermarket chains in this paper are regarded as a system, then the transverse replenishment and deployment method is proposed, and it is applied to the solution of the surplus fresh agricultural products or the shortages of the supermarket chains. To describe transverse replenishment method in detail, two sub models: inventory-total cost model and transportation model of transverse replenishment are established. MATLAB software is used to calculate and analyze the transverse replenishment model. The inventory-total cost model of the transverse replenishment proves the conclusion that the inventory total cost of the whole system is lower compared with the traditional replenishment method. The transportation model of the transverse replenishment gives the optimal dispatching scheme between the surplus supermarket and the shortages supermarket in order to minimize the total transportation costs. The transverse replenishment method in this paper is firstly applied to the fresh agricultural products of supermarket chains, and it can provide a new method for the supermarket chains to managed the inventory of fresh agricultural products so as to reduce total inventory costs of the whole the supermarket chains system, to maximize the overall system profits, and to improve the customer service levels as much as possible.
