The Western Canadian market for consumables and household products is rapidly evolving. Changing consumer behaviours have forced manufacturers to rethink their selling and distribution strategies. No matter which market you bring your products to, your supply chain and distribution systems need to be able to keep up with demand and facilitate revenue and growth. If your business relies on a 3PL provider, they need to have the knowledge, experience, and tools to support your business goals.

Birkby Food Service has over a century of experience providing industry-leading food distribution for customers in Calgary and across Western Canada. Today, our turnkey 3PL solutions offer a complete, scalable logistics foundation for your business, allowing you to focus on delighting customers and fostering growth.

Inventory Management that Meets Your Needs

Warehousing solutions and capabilities can vary widely depending on your 3PL provider. For consumables, it’s vital to have the right infrastructure; inventory shrinkage, product recalls, and damage to your brand’s reputation are only a few of the consequences of inadequate storage and distribution. Your logistics partner needs to be able to preserve and protect your goods throughout the supply chain, ensuring retailers and customers receive a top-quality product every time.

With fulfillment centres across Western Canada, Birkby is ready to meet your business’ warehousing and storage needs. Our facilities can maintain ambient, refrigerated, and frozen (down to -28ºC) temperatures suitable for nearly any requirement, ensuring consistency and regulatory compliance throughout the supply chain. Combined with real-time inventory management and reporting powered by Routeique, we offer complete, scalable solutions for operations of all sizes and scopes.

Efficient Shipping and Distribution

In the ever-evolving consumables industry, each part of the supply chain matters. However, the Last Mile before your product reaches retailers and customers can dictate your ability to grow your business. Getting your products to market on-time and in good condition is non-negotiable, but high costs and inefficient practices can prevent companies from reaching their full potential.

Since 1918, Birkby Food Service has built its reputation on exceptional food distribution services in Calgary and across Western Canada. Today, we’re proud to offer cutting-edge solutions to keep our clients’ supply chains efficient down to the Last Mile.

Meanwhile, automated order technology efficiently manages your inventory for every incoming order (complete with full integration with all major eCommerce platforms). Our flexible fulfillment systems are engineered to scale to your unique needs, allowing you to focus on running your business while your products arrive where they need to be.
