insufficient / no sales


Explanation:
I'm sure you can figure out a better way of saying this: Ungängigkeit refers to the fact that the item in question did not sell.
"Der Artikel geht gut" means that the item sells well; "der Artikel geht schlecht" = Ungängigkeit refers to the opposite.

Check out these and more references:

... das Lifo-Verfahren angewendet, und darüber hinaus wurden Abschläge wegen Ungängigkeit und niedrigerem Marktwert vorgenommen.

... des Niederstwertprinzips durchgeführt. Dem Lagerhaltungsrisiko, insbesondere dem der Ungängigkeit, wird durch angemessene Wertabschläge Rechnung getragen ...

Unfortunately, all my dictionaries are silent on the term ungängig/Ungängigkeit, but that's what it means - slow sales [turnover] or no sales, thus the item keeps sitting in inventory.

HTH a bit.
