Benefits of DSD

There you have it:

  • Better sales numbers because knowledgeable supplier representatives of DSD products are in the stores multiple times per week merchandising their products. Out of stocks for DSD items are reported as being 2 - 4% less than products distributed through retail distribution centers.

  • 1000s of retailer hours saved due to a reduction in shelf-tag & scan errors because DSD item data is managed by vendors and communicated to retailers through data synchronization.

  • Reduced labor expense for reordering and merchandising products since this is taken care of by the supplier at no extra cost to the retailer. Merchandising time spent handling item data is reduced by five to ten percent.

  • DSD products bypass the retail distribution center which takes out 0.5 - 1.0% inventory out of the retail distributor’s inventory assets.

  • 1000s of hours of retail warehouse labor hours saved because DSD products are delivered directly to the stores. Logistics costs savings to the retailer are estimated at a 1.0%+ reduction.

  • Speed to market for new items is improved by 2 weeks because products bypass retail distribution centers in the supply chain.

-5 - 10% reduction in finance time and audit fees spent reconciling invoices.

We're just going CAO at Walmart.That's all.Rally meeting said that we have nothing to worry about. Frito and some other vendors are already CAO. It's what Walmart wants. We'll be fine. We'll still merchandise and tweak orders. Elves are spreading rumors

Hiring alot of pt merchandisers mostly!

Hmmm wonder why

by | Post ID:

You do realize lower prices don’t translate into profit dollars right? Kellogg's abandoned their employees.

Nabisco is hiring. Come be on the winning team.

Higher margin but factor in waste and labor costs- Nabisco wins again. Go back under your bridge you troll.

Elf isn't butt hurt! Elf is right!

Keebler has better prices now.

Also product is forced out and stores have to take it now.

So they're putting more displays out and keeping the prices marked down to get rid of inventory.

Store push back on DSD.

They refuse my orders.

Especially when prd's and blind nos orders are attached!

Your facts are incorrect! DSD comes at a cost to retailers, built into product cost. This is how Keebler cut their costs!

Like the person said on another thread mail it in boys and girls time to hit send on your resume I couldn’t agree more

by | Post ID:

Sounds like somebody is butt hurt because the Nabisco folks used kick his a-- when he was an Elf. Go back under your bridge troll. Nabisco wins again.

Keebler is beating u guys on retail prices when the last time u seen club crackers at 1.98 at everyday at Walmart only when dsd went away because Keebler can afford to do so because there overhead is low compared to dsd and there still bringing in decent margins on there products without huge expenses

by | Post ID:

But nabisco bottom line is better by getting out of dsd sales may drop for them but the profitability will go threw the roof and that what matters to co and investors. Just look at all the overhead nabisco out from under by getting rid of dsd
