Food logistics

What is food logistics?

Food logistics focuses on logistics in the food market - an industry that is one of the most important economic sectors in Germany. A growing range of products, fluctuating demand, limited logistics and retail space and the perishable nature of goods are all challenges facing food logistics.

As foodstuffs are very sensitive goods, reliability and speed are of paramount importance in food logistics. Cold chains must be strictly adhered to and interim storage also requires highly sensitive, hygienic handling of the products. Modern warehouse management can help to increase transparency for consumers. Warehouse management software can be used, for example, to track product batches and monitor best-before dates, ensuring greater safety in the food warehouse.

Food can be classified according to the following aspects, for example:

  • Origin of the raw materials
  • Ingredients
  • Origin
  • Manufacturing process
  • Consumption occasion
  • Cooling requirement

Overall, digitalization continues to advance and is changing the development of e-commerce in the entire food industry and in stationary food retail. Many retailers already recognize this today and offer customers various delivery options.
