As a distributor you have the goal of meeting store service levels and KPIs yet still maintaining your profitability. You do not get to offset increased distribution costs against retail benefits.
Optimising your distribution operation is paramount so techniques such as the use of industrial engineered labour standards which allows you to get the best from your workforce are essential. You will also have to deal with the characteristics of the product you’re handling. Dates, weights, lots, batches, serial numbers, temperatures and country of origin are some examples. Often you’ll need to become a mini-manufacturing operation with product personalisation, relabeling and kitting. Retail compliance and returns will be a continual struggle.
