A Changing Environment
Retail complexity is increasing. Grocery retailers, for example, have diversified into clothing and appliances. Ensuring product availability and quality—on the shelf and through the ordering process—is critical to enabling your company to perform at peak efficiency. Is there enough product on the shelf? Is it the right quality? Is it traceable if a recall is required?
With more products and more SKUs, on-site storage space is increasingly at a premium, so optimizing delivery volumes must be more precise than ever. This means many retailers have a pressing need for multi-temperature deliveries and solutions, such as trailers that can range from -25°C to +5°C (-13°F to +41°F) (with ambient warehousing also available).
