Maximux control over the logistics operations
Thanks to a synergetic cooperation with our sister company Agrilogistica, we can offer full logistics support to ship the goods from Italy and Europe to the U.S. with an innovative system called Automated Replenishment Program (ARP), that is one of the biggest innovations in the modern supply chain management. The ARP is an advanced logistics solution which allows us to optimize freight consolidation and deliver even a single pallet directly to the regional distribution centers (DCs), granting maximum flexibility also for small private label projects.
The Cloud Sourcing Intelligence (CSI) is an advanced proprietary software able to analyze sales data from shelf to estimate the exact assortment needed from the retailer week by week to meet the demand, helping managing production timelines, freight consolidation from different plants and deliveries to DCs accordingly, while cutting down third-party warehousing and unnecessary inland costs.
The combo of the Automated Replenishment Program and the Cloud Sourcing Intelligence allows the products to always be on time on shelf, eliminating any risk of out-of-stock and over-stock which negatively affect sales’ performance and profits.
