Anticipate Customer Requirements With DSCP for Food & Beverage
Increased internationalization, mergers, increased competition, the growth in the number of products, shortening in the lifetime of individual products, increase in the number of promotions, make accurate demand management more and more difficult. Within an industry with heavy and increasingly integrated methods of production, customer requirements are less and less anticipated and organization’s need to be more and more pro-active.
On the opposite side, keeping stock is expensive and goes against the key requirement for flexibility and freshness demanded by the market and consumers. The Food & Beverage industry is also heavily affected by seasonality and limited availability of certain products through the year. The sector is characterized by complex and intensive distribution networks, reduced margins, which puts the logistics organization and its associated costs under pressure.
