Food Wholesale & Distribution
Efficient logistics combined with a quick-and-easy ordering process
Customers are raising the bar, demanding more and squeezing the deadlines. In both the B2B and B2C food sectors. Irrespective of whether composite orders or personalised meals or meal boxes are at issue: they lead to more complex logistics and subsequent higher costs. In addition, an increasing number of food merchants want to save costs and raise quality by optimising both the supply chain and internal logistics (WMS roll-out).
NetSuite for food trade and distribution offers the flexibility and functionality to respond to and capitalise on these trends by offering more efficiency in the ordering process by using kit and/or matrix articles. Naturally with a broad range of price and discount options including the allocation of landed cost to a particular order. In this way, orders can be handled logistically with the help of mobile warehousing (WMS). The planners are supported by so-called supply chain snapshots and/or supply chain towers. The customer ordering process is also accessible and quick thanks to portals and an EDI module.
Food merchants with retail outlets (stores or market stalls) receive considerable sales support from NetSuite thanks to integrated Point of Sale functionality.
