Your role as a retailer is a demanding one: you need to make sure products are available at the right time, control CO2 emissions and handle pressure on your margins. Optimize your transportation flows to achieve savings of up to 15%.

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.

*Report by the ‘Observatoire de la formation des prix et des marges des produits alimentaires’ (French food sector price and margin surveillance program), 2022

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. 

*Report by the firm AgileBuyer and the Conseil National des Achats, estimation for 2022
