As more quick service and casual restaurants look for ways to optimize their supply chain efficiencies and cut costs, redistribution is quickly becoming a viable and sought-after solution.
Regardless of a customer’s business size and shipment needs, redistribution can be a huge benefit to those companies who have frequent less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments of qualified goods. Using its proprietary redistribution process, KINEXO works quickly to consolidate and transport a customer’s LTL purchase volume, at the distributor-level, and across all locations and suppliers. From there, KINEXO optimizes inbound and outbound loads using strategic warehousing locations to create value for all trading partners and ensure supply reliability.
A few of the huge benefits KINEXO customers receive are a reduction in landed cost of certain products into distribution, end-to-end freight and financial visibility and traceability, resolution of supplier minimums and distributor slotting limits, an increase in efficiency with a single point of contact, and additional options for slow moving, promotional and brand essence products.
Distributors experience the ability to purchase in smaller quantities to improve inventory turns and reduction of investment, more backhaul opportunities, truckload quantities, and consolidated purchase orders and payments. Supplier advantages include more efficient path to the end user, greater production efficiencies and consolidation of sales orders and cash receipts.
KINEXO serves over 270 distribution centers from three geographic hubs in the U.S., and is easily able to provide the coverage its customers require to remain successful in the marketplace. At the end of the day, redistribution is a win-win for all parties involved.
