Simpler and more efficient flow of goods

Grupo Bimbo decides to realign its distribution logistics. It should become simpler and more efficient for all flows of goods. This includes raw materials, finished products and empty containers between the production plants, distribution and distribution centers and the customers in the market. Grupo Bimbo is implementing its realignment with the construction and commissioning of the new central, highly automated distribution center.
