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.
