Food and beverage logistics – Digitalizing your transportation process

Compliance, optimization, visibility and reliability in food and beverage logistics

Food and beverage supply chains are designed with little margin for error. This is partially due to the large number of parties involved, but also the perishable nature of the goods, safety regulations and cost pressures. This unique set of circumstances means successful food and beverage businesses are dependent on effective tracking, clear visibility and compliance.

At Alpega we help food and beverage companies:

  • Maintain real-time visibility over shipments and ETAs
  • Control transportation costs and track carrier performance
  • Integrate with ERP solutions
  • Ensure safe and compliant shipment execution and documentation

Our clients

By streamlining sourcing, planning, execution, settlement and analytics, Alpega delivers seamless integration and global visibility for food and beverage logistics management. Our customers include some of the biggest names in the food and beverage industry.

Food transport – Visibility and reliability

Alpega has developed a number of logistics solutions specifically for the food and beverage industry. Smart Booking, is a cutting-edge slot booking solution, devised to manage the unique complexities of the sector. It will, for example, estimate slot times by taking into consideration loading requirements (certain goods require specific equipment) and paperwork (typically for export goods).

Alpega’s Live Tracking solution gives shippers full visibility of goods and a dynamic ETA. In an industry characterized by tight deadlines, lean supply chains and advanced planning, this proves invaluable and greatly increases customer satisfaction rates.

Transwide significantly reduces discretions and the mistakes […] to a minimum. Thanks to Transwide, we now not only have quicker invoicing, we have better accruals and a more accurate view on the cost-to-serve of our customers.

Transportation of food products – the right carrier for your needs

Given the perishable nature of goods in the food and beverage supply chain, keeping them fresh and adhering to safety regulations is a key concern. Transport storage methods play a vital role here and timings, temperature control, humidity, floor contact, ventilation and pest control are just some of the risks that need to be managed.

In this context, it’s always a good idea to work with carriers that have the expertise and equipment to provide the perfect service, at an optimal cost. The Alpega Hub provides access to 80,000+, pre-vetted carriers, each with their own capacity and expertise. Carrier score cards let you know exactly what to expect from each carrier and rest in the knowledge your products are in safe hands.
