The revolution in trade is changing the role of wholesale trade. Focus on key functions and efficient control are the most important assets. Global trade, changes in supply chain and digitalisation are opening new markets for the wholesale trade.
Competition for customers is forcing all trade operators to make their supply chains more efficient and to shorten delivery times. The flows of goods are increasingly thinner, more frequent and faster. At the same time, the significance of time, location and distance is being redefined.
Traditionally, wholesale suppliers deliver goods to retail shops in large quantities in roller cages and on pallets. In the future, wholesale suppliers must be able to pick even small quantities cost-efficiently, and in addition to bulk packages they must process partial packages. The number of processed orders and lines is increasing while line-specific volumes are decreasing. The efficient management of operations, profitable service production and flexible supply chains require modern solutions.
