As more quick-service chain brands look to redistribution to reduce costs and optimize supply chains, Consolidated Distribution Corporation LLC (CDC), announced that it has been selected to provide customized redistribution services to ARCOP Inc.
ARCOP is the national non-profit food service supply chain cooperative of Arby's Restaurant Group Inc.
According to a news release, CDC's redistribution model reduces supply chain costs by shipping truckload quantities of slower moving frozen and nonperishable food items, disposable supplies and other products to its warehouses. CDC is then able to create truckload shipments of consolidated products to the distributor, resulting in a lower landed cost.
"With more than 3,400 franchisee and company-owned restaurants in our system, we found a partner in CDC that can better optimize LTL, difficult, and time-sensitive product shipments from our suppliers to regional U.S. distributors," said Matt Cosson, vice president of distribution management, ARCOP. "CDC is able to provide us with a high level of customer service and visibility which is vital to managing our supply chain needs and demands."
