Execellence in Inventory Management Food and beverage companies face many unique supply chain challenges. These include complex inventory control and allocation issues, increasingly challenging regulatory/product recall requirements, RFID, slow growth markets that necessitate continuous cost reduction, high transportation costs, and both plant-direct and "mixing center" distribution models. In addition, many food and beverage companies are involved in direct delivery to the stores, either directly or through distribution partners, which create further logistics challenges. Made4net provides a powerful set of capabilities for food and beverage supply chains. This includes capabilities both for manufacturers, as well as a special focus on the unique requirements for beverage and food distributors. This allows the flexibility to respond in real time to ever-changing demands and achieve higher throughput in a shorter timeframe, reducing inventory, improving service levels and lowering costs.
