Over the past decade, retailers have been facing a number of trends and economic factors that have created more challenges within the distribution industry. Private labeling is one of the more significant trends within the distribution sector that is significantly impacting daily operations for industry participants. Retailers, particularly in the Food & Beverage subsector, are progressively changing the dynamics of the operational supply chain. This includes product differentiation, competitive pricing, and technological development.
Our specialists Don Wiggins and Alex Kellison analyze the distribution sector in four different subgroups (healthcare, consumer goods, industrial and capital goods, food and beverage). We also turn a spotlight on US Foods, the second largest food service distributor in the United States; and look into their performance and M&A strategy.
