Consolidated Distribution Corporation LLC (CDC) has been selected to provide strategic foodservice redistribution services to Checkers Drive-In Restaurants Inc., parent company of Checkers and Rally's brands.
According to a 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.
"The inclusion of redistribution within our supply chain requires a successful business strategy from a seasoned supply chain expert. Redistribution is an important part of our supply chain model in getting slower moving or promotional product where it needs to be, when it needs to be there, for the lowest landed cost," said Patti DuMars, senior director of supply chain management, Checkers. "Having a redistribution provider such as CDC gives us the flexibility to make last-minute changes and still get time-sensitive deliveries on time. Seamlessly moving dry and frozen product with minimal incident and with maximum efficiency is a must for our system."
Earlier this month, Arby's co-op also selected CDC.
