According to Baltussen, a 2021 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know winner, “In today’s volatile market, what matters most is achieving service levels. From supply shortages to higher competition, the need to adapt new models of selling is required to accommodate new buying preferences and practices. Driven by a rapidly changing market leading with ecommerce growth and pandemic buying, there are trends worth examining as Europe grows in managing logistics and a fluctuating supply chain.” 

Baltussen added, “Only when European food companies accurately measure the cost of a great customer experience can success be determined. There is science behind inventory planning, and it is demonstrated by taking advantage of the opportunities to ramp up or down supply to minimize bottom-line costs. When food businesses can efficiently see what people are buying, when, how and how much they are willing to pay for it, they can eliminate the unprofitable “gut check” style of pricing.
