AGRITALIA GUARANTEES NO OUT-OF-STOCK PRODUCTS TO CUSTOMERS AMID GLOBAL SHIPPING DELAYS
The Italian 30-years old company is specializing in helping the food industry that exports Italian culinary traditions, and in private label programs, with an extensive experience with US major retailers
As congestion at U.S. ports causes delays Agritalia says communication and the company’s own data analyzing software provide for no interruptions in delivering their products.
Eighty percent of business for Agritalia is in the U.S. When the pandemic shut down much of the world, the company began to work with distributors and international shipping companies. “Our first goal was to make sure we would not have any out of stock,” says Leo Nucera, Sales and Marketing Director at Agritalia. Second, the company was working to anticipate extra demand of supplies with companies to make sure there weren’t any holes on the shelf.
Nucera describes the software as a win-win. For example, distributors reduce overstock, and retailers are given the option to place fresher products on the shelves.
