Food logistics: Store friendly delivery with lowest cost per case
Consumers today demand fresh, high-quality products, a high service level and a wide selection of products. As a result, food retailers and manufacturers are facing significant challenges in their warehouse logistics:
- Short lead times triggered by point of sale information (Efficient Consumer Response)
- More frequent deliveries of generally smaller orders
- High delivery reliability
- The ability to handle peaks in the stores and the DCs efficiently
Low margins make it necessary to reduce cost per case handled and improve downstream efficiency. Store friendly delivery can significantly reduce supply chain costs and enhance service levels to stores.
