ATLANTA, February 10, 2021 – The U.S. retail food sector generates eight million tons of waste annually in distribution centers and stores, or $18 billion per year in lost value because of overstocks and spoilage. Volatile supply chain conditions including seasonality, long lead times, closures and hoarding are driving stockouts through the roof.
Blue Ridge, the leader in supply chain planning and pricing solutions, today announced a webinar hosted with UniPro Foodservice to share how three food distributors are rethinking their approach to inventory planning and supply chain resiliency. The webinar is set for February 24, 2021 at 1:00 PM ET. Register here.
Attendees will learn how to:
- Consistently keep food products in stock including perishables without costly excess
- Drive huge efficiencies in order replenishment
- Free up even more efficiencies and reduce costs through smarter transfers and inventory allocation
- Improve customer service levels for increased sales, revenues and profitability
- Use newly discovered working capital toward other priorities
David Huch, executive vice president of procurement, UniPro Foodservice shared, “The importance of advanced inventory planning solutions that deliver 98% forecast accuracy are redefining the investment required to meet stringent expectations for great customer service.”
