Taking a Fresh approach to your Food Supply Chain
The food and drink exports market is thriving; it continues to grow year on year. In 2016 UK exports exceeded the £20 billion mark. The USA was the largest non-EU market for branded UK food and non alcoholic drinks, up 24% in 2016 to £197.1m.
As the food export market continues to grow, WTA Food wants to make sure that you are also achieving growth in your food distribution and meeting the demands of your customers, but with significant growth comes potential issues that need to be addressed otherwise costs will escalate.
Exporting food from Europe to the US is a complex process. It is not just about offering a logistics service or freight rates from point A to point B, but your entire supply chain from rates, to customs, to warehousing, to landed costs. There are several areas of the supply chain that can be left very vulnerable if not analysed and supported, such as on-time deliveries and compliance issues. Looking at A-Z is where the value is created. Get the supply chain structure right and you will not only see efficiencies but overall Supply Chain costs significantly reduced to the tune of up to 35% on a year by year basis.
Each Food and Drink Supply Chain is Unique
There is no one solution that fits all requirements.
Flexibility and tailor made solutions allow for a supply chain to be developed to your own bespoke requirements and will certainly bring about real value added savings to your overall costs. Working side by side with you, we develop a comprehensive solution, working with an extensive base of Best in Class providers from start to finish.
