Every day hundreds of shipments move from supplier plant locations to over 50 distribution centers that support our member’s 20,000-plus restaurants. The objective is flawless execution from each and every operator order, to the store. The Product Supply team assists with many aspects of the supply chain distribution. From contract negotiations to resolving quality assurance issues, this team is focused on the best distribution options for our members and distributors.
Working with suppliers and distributors the team works to prevent inbound freight-related issues from affecting product supply at distribution centers. Consistent monitoring of savings opportunities results in efficient management of freight, including redistribution, working with freight management companies and securing more competitive rates. The team’s goal is to ensure our members are paying the proper price based on negotiated supplier contracts, and negotiated distribution agreements.
