Managing the complex maze of mass retailer logistics
Whatever product you sell, if you need to manage mass retailer logistics in Canada, you need to make sure that you are working with a logistics provider who can navigate your products through the maze of compliance standards.
Every major retailer, from Canadian Tire to WalMart, has special requirements, or compliance standards, for how shipments must be packaged and shipped in order to be received by their stores. To make matters more complicated, each retailer has its own set of standards, so you may need to ship similar orders in somewhat unique combinations of packaging.
Some examples of these regulations include the following;
- CHEP pallets may be specifically required
- Pallet size designations are usually dictated, including height restrictions
- No overhang of products or boxes off the edges of pallets
Your success in maneuvering through this complex landscape of mass retailer logistics is monitored by the retailers, and you must maintain a high level in your compliance scores in order to continue working with these key players in your supply chain. You invest time and money in getting on their shelves – let us help you stay there and ensure your products don’t get delisted.
As your logistics provider, McKenna knows each of these sets of standards and consistently navigates them successfully. Even better news for you and your company is that the mass retailers realize that McKenna gets it. We have mass retailer compliance scores in excess of 99.9% for order accuracy, so put our track record and reputation to work for you.
