understock
sous-stockage / sous-stock


Explanation:
J'accorde que le mot n'est pas très joli mais il exprime l'intention.
L'on dit de certains commerçants qu'ils sous-stockent.
Ce qui, en Belgique, est interdit lorsque l'on fait une publicité pour une vente particulière et que les stocks (intentionnellement) ne répondent pas à la demande.
Ce qui est différent de la rupture de stock imprévue ou d'un stock qui peut être insuffisant, parce que non livré ou pour des raisons de difficultés de trésorerie.
