French term or phrase: Nous fonctionnons en flux tendus avec nos fournisseurs ...
It appears within the French terms & conditions of a shopping website, and I think it refers to the fact that they company is only supplied with what they need rather than stocking too much, but I can't think of a concise English version.

TIA for any suggestions.
