Direct Store Delivery (DSD)

The retail industry has become more complex. With increased competition, more government regulations, rising fuel costs and increased customer demand, it’s never been more imperative for suppliers and retailers to work more collaboratively.

DSD (Direct Store Delivery) is particularly appealing for companies that require tight delivery windows for their products, and for smaller retail outlets (gas stations, convenience stores, drugstores, etc.) that need frequent replenishment. It has also become the favored distribution method in markets where freshness is important or product is produced locally — like beer, soft drinks, baked goods, and snacks.

DSD benefits everybody in the supply chain: manufacturers, retailers, and customers.

  • Retailers are able to reduce both capital investment and operating expenses
  • Manufacturers are able to increase their visibility into consumer behavior, sales volume, patterns, and etc.
  • Customers have the products they need when they need them
