Purchasing habits are constantly changing. There is a demand for an increasing variety of items and an expectation that the shopping experience will be pleasant with a high availability of products. Omni-channel retailing is now a reality, and e-commerce is a channel to be taken into account in distribution centre processes.

To achieve this, it is essential for food and beverage producers and distributors to have an efficient supply chain.

The food and beverage industry works with very sensitive products, for which it must guarantee hygiene measures, optimal time management, due to expiry dates, and temperature management (dry, cool, temperature-controlled, frozen) to ensure the cold chain is not broken at any time. In this context, intralogistics flows must meet strict requirements.

In ULMA’s automated systems, all processes are controlled and managed by u·mind, our logistics software suite, maximising the efficiency of the automated installation. u·mind allows you to permanently monitor your stored products and provides an overview of your BBE and BBD data. 

Trends in the food and beverage sector:

  • Increasing demand for a variety of purchasing options
  • Rising demand for fresh produce
  • Proliferation of food and beverage of products. Demand for a wider variety of products
  • Sector with strict food safety regulations
  • Omni-channel retailing: shopping in department stores, small shops, e-commerce, etc.
  • Demand for more local and organically sourced products

Due to its nature, the food supply chain presents several challenges: the importance of not breaking the cold chain, fresh products and managing expiry dates, among others.
