Logistics Consultants

"The projects that we have worked on with Franklin-Foodservice over the past several years have enabled us to think differently about many of our customer service processes and policies.  Benchmarking and Cost-to-Serve analysis has created a baseline for measurement of improvement, as well as tracking of order and logistics related costs.  Finding industry benchmarking data for Food Service in this area has been difficult to impossible, but the work done by Franklin-Foodservice has finally brought forth some of this critical insight."
