Mobile Solutions Drive Digital Transformation in Food Distribution

Solution Brief

New technology significantly improves logistics and competitiveness

Food manufacturing and distribution have unique challenges because products are often perishable, and producers must comply with strict food safety regulations. It’s a highly competitive industry where the number of different products manufactured goes up every year, and customer expectations are rising. Recent supply chain problems exposed how many companies still rely on analog logistics processes that are slow and inefficient. There’s a lack of automation, integration, and coordination. Most are not properly taking advantage of their data and don’t have the capabilities to implement new technology.

Mobile Devices and Actionable Data Solve Challenges

When companies transform logistics with mobile technology, they streamline operations and gain a holistic view of their supply chain:

  • Using mobile devices at every step of the supply chain—from warehouse to delivery—generates highly-accurate logistics data so that the right products go to the right places at the right time.
  • Digital technology does away with slow pen and paper record-keeping, so loading and transportation move faster.
  • IoT devices help track expiration dates and product temperatures to ensure freshness and prevent spoilage.
  • Automation and integration with customer systems automates ordering and reduces the chance of stockouts.
  • Data from mobile devices monitors deliveries. It can alert customers to pending deliveries and allows managers to see and remove route deficiencies or oversee schedules better. Everything speeds up.
