Containerisation in the retail trade18 August 2011
Containerisation is especially suited to the retail trade and has formed a key part in retailers’ supply chain systems for many years. Strict adherence to the stated deadlines is demanded and they need not just the products but even the packaging to arrive in the same condition it left the factory. Consequently carriers, their agents and intermediaries work hard to ensure maximum safety and to manage sophisticated routing instructions, often encompassing large numbers of senders and receivers, origin and delivery points.
This segment is also characterised by a large amount of delivery preparation being demanded by some customers prior to the delivery of their goods.
In the face of strong economic growth in Russia, retail sales, market entry and the expansion of existing networks of retailers, the constant expansion and complication of the commodity nomenclature and geography of procurement, we strive to satisfy our customers' requirements for the speedy and safe delivery of products and increase consumer satisfaction.
