Retail

The challenge facing operators servicing stores, whether as retailers or wholesalers and distributors, is ensuring you achieve the store service level goals.

Optimising the distribution operation has to be kept in balance with store needs.  The type of product being supplied has a direct impact on how merchandise is handled; food will need to comply with farm to fork legislation, track dates, weights and temperatures; pharmaceutical products can be multi-temperature and require batch number tracking and tracing to comply with agencies such as the FDA.  Within the distribution centre you might need to deal with flow-through, cross-dock and transhipments to minimise inventory levels and maximise freshness and timeliness.

Often the centre will need to support multi-channel operations, processing orders differently dependent upon their scale. CS.nx can help you meet and overcome these challenges – just as we have been helping companies similar to yours for over 30 years.
