Since the COVID-19 pandemic gripped the world earlier this year and countries went into nationwide lockdowns, businesses (where possible) have had to quickly adapt their operations in order to accommodate employees and service customers. Different segments of the Distribution industry saw varying disruptions to their supply and demand due to lockdown restrictions.
Due to COVID-19 cases reported at the Distribution Centers (DCs) in the state of California, the client needed to divert the demand forecasts from these DCs to other DCs with no impact on product supply levels to avoid any loss of sales. The forecast was to be moved to the DC which was in close proximity to the customers being serviced.
Our client was looking for a partner who understands the business and nuances of the beverage/bottling industry including DSD, FSV, merchandising planning, route planning and will be able to collaborate with business teams and the other vendors while ensuring proper governance.
Quinnox had an already well-established relationship with the world’s largest beverage company since 2007, supporting a pre-and post-divestiture project, and emerging as their subject matter expert and “go-to” resource for their SAP technology landscape efforts. With Quinnox’s in-depth knowledge in the bottling & distribution industry business processes and association with the client since 2014, Quinnox was chosen as the partner to help the client manage the diversion of their sales and distribution operations.
