Industry Challenges

In addition to supply and logistics challenges such as labor, inefficiencies, and distribution, the food and beverages industry handles:

  • Extreme environment conditions for refrigerated and frozen foods
  • 3-tiered distribution models
  • Sequential transportation stops for customer deliveries
  • Multi-day shifts
  • Warehouse and manufacturing locations in non-populous areas
  • Product variance in weight, size, shape and delicacy – produce, dry package goods, beverages, meat products


To help determine the best approach for your specific organization, consider the following:

  • Picking variances for different retailers
  • Storage needs - temperature specifications, sizing, quantity
