Fives has experience dating back decades in the retail and Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector. Our distribution chain expertise begins with managing ultra-fresh products (e.g., meat and fish) with processing technologies and tracking systems. We also provide end-to-end distribution logistics for packaged foods.
For fresh products, we aim to maximize transit speed from distribution center to store.
The goal for longer shelf-life products is to optimize the in-store distribution process to enable rapid and punctual supply. Robotic solutions help reduce labor requirements for heavy lifting.
