Gain accuracy, efficiency and lifetime customers.
The food and beverage sector is famous for razor-thin margins and the complexities involved in getting product from the raw material stage to the store or shelf — on time, in excellent condition. There’s no room for errors, shorts and delays where customers are concerned. Distribution operations must deliver outstanding service levels, despite extreme demands.
There are many other risk factors beyond the distributor’s control, such as changing consumer preferences and safety standards. Regulatory requirements and inclement weather must be navigated. Distribution operations managers must account for all of these factors and more, and must blend this information with internal logistics data to meet the competitive standards of this sector.
