Quality of services, CO2 and profitability
Challenges for retailers
Control margins to ensure profitability
The average margin before taxes for the food distribution sector is only 2.3%*. Because transportation is one of your main cost items, poor management of it can directly affect your profitability. This means it is crucial to efficiently manage your transportation plans, in order to maintain your margins and ensure the future of your business.

Reduce greenhouse emissions
78% of consumers state that they are prepared to wait for a product delivery if doing so will reduce CO2 emissions. Whether transport is managed internally or is subcontracted, reducing carbon emissions and making it part of CSR policy will positively impact consumer’s buying decisions.

Enhance customer experience and anticipate shortages
As much as 68% of companies may be affected by raw materials shortages*. In this high-pressure environment, delivering the right product, at the right place and time, is a difficult task. Preparing for shortages by planning your deliveries smartly is key to ensuring an optimal experience.
