French term or phrase: detention numerique
Can't find this anywhere! Does anyone know what it means? This comes from a glossary for a document about large retailers.

"Chiffre d’affaires moyen hebdomadaire corrigé par le niveau de Détention Numérique ou valeur"
"Reference incontournable: DN (detention numerique" proche de 100 et écart de prix faible entre les enseignes"

detention value
Explanation:
It is a surcharge effected by the carrier in case the consignee's space or installations do not allow for the immediate discharge of the cargo. So, there is a value based on the "detention time", i.e., the time of the delay, the detained time.

inventory


Explanation:
It couldn't be inventory could it? Firms lose money when they hold inventory without selling it. It's already paid for but is bringing nothing in.

numeric distribution


Explanation:
Very late to be answering but I've just come across this in a translation and had dreadful trouble finding a translation. However, I think this is actually an error in the original document: DN is right but the term is actually "disponibilité/distribution numérique".
