Food

Exceed your customers’ expectations

In today’s food retail market, consumers demand fresh, high-quality products, and excellent service. They expect their shopping experience to be stress-free with a high availability of products.

As a result of increasing consumer demands, food retailers must cope with the growing volumes of diversified stock and multiple store formats. E-commerce requirements must also be factored into distribution centre (DC) processes.

The expanding number of SKUs means that efficient space utilisation in the stores is another vital consideration. Stores have strict budgets and need their deliveries on time and full shelves in the store. With this in mind, employees are faced with added pressure in the back of the store when it comes to splitting pallets and roll containers, which leaves them little time to assist customers.

At Vanderlande, we understand the complexities of running a successful food retail business. As such, we have defined the next generation of scalable solutions – evolutions. They are designed to deliver the highest level of flexibility and scalability, and can facilitate store-friendly deliveries.

In order to meet any customer’s demands in full, Vanderlande has defined the next generation of scalable solutions – evolutions. They will allow these challenges to be met through an integrated portfolio of innovative systems, intelligent software and life-cycle services.
