Efficient Processes for Food Distribution
To control rising operational and food costs, wholesalers have incorporated technology to improve efficiency and boost margins. Distributors are using advanced software to process receivables, integrate the supply chain, and analyze and forecast demand. Distributors with truck fleets use computerized routing systems and may have onboard computer systems to monitor driver performance. Technological advancements are extending to mobile handheld devices, improving communication between a driver and the central office.
For food and beverage producers, wholesale and distribution companies, mobility solutions offer numerous ways to help move perishable goods quickly through the supply chain and keep non-perishable goods well stocked and available when the customer needs them. Bar code and RFID (radio frequency identification) technologies speed data capture, cutting crucial cycles from processing and delivery. They also help eliminate error-prone paper processes that can disrupt the accuracy and timeliness of orders.
