How to Drive Excellence in Food Service

No tags available

Concerns over food product safety and integrity have ramped up efforts in the food supply chain to improve service, efficiency, and transparency—despite already robust regulatory oversight.

Picking up and delivering shipments on time with no claims is the expectation among food service companies. Service is for all intents and purposes "guaranteed," given the shelf life of many products. Consignees, shippers, and service providers driven to reduce inventories and operate just in time can optimize performance by closely gathering and analyzing key performance indicators and driving visibility to better match supply with demand.

At the same time, sourcing strategies may similarly impact what ports you are bringing product into. For example, pushing manufacturing further inland in China may warrant consideration of Suez Canal routings via the U.S. East Coast versus Pacific transits to the West Coast—and carriers serving those areas.

Having a firm direction of corporate growth strategies and transportation requirements will give you a better idea of what lanes you will be looking to fill.
