How Birkby’s 3PL Services Help Food Businesses with Fulfillment

When many food and beverage businesses think about "fulfillment," they tend to think of the last steps of getting their product on a grocery store shelf or, increasingly commonly, direct to their customer's doorstep. If they're familiar with logistics and supply chain management, the term "Last Mile" may come to mind. However, fulfillment is a highly complex process that involves the entire supply chain; it's much more than simply getting your product where it needs to be. When choosing distribution or 3PL partners, many businesses tend to choose companies that can only help with a few aspects of the fulfillment process. In reality, companies planning for long-term growth need partners that can offer start-to-finish solutions to manage, scale, and optimize their entire supply chain.
