East Granby, CT, May 01, 2015 –(PR.com)– Heather Landi recently reported in Beverage World that the beverage industry today faces a number of challenges: SKU proliferation, tightening government regulations, a changing retail landscape, and greater customer service demands-that is making the job of producing, warehousing, and delivering beverages much more complex. However, for beverage companies across the supply chain it seems the overall goal is still the same as it was 50 years ago-expand their business without increasing operating costs.
Sponsored by Pcdata USA, this week’s Picking Perfection shared more of Landi’s report noting that essentially, marketers, producers, and distributors want to get more products to market better, faster and cheaper, and technology can be a key tool in this process. While the technology integration, real-time data, is useful, the reality is that when trucks are packed for route delivery a mis-pick remains one of the most costly errors.
