Dot Foods—Your Sourcing Solution for Domestic and Imported Products
Redistribution makes a difference to every link in the supply chain, allowing products to move more efficiently and cost-effectively from the manufacturer to end-user.
In the United States, many distributors are not large enough to regularly order from manufacturers in large enough quantities to make sense for all parties involved, or those distributors can’t store large amounts of products for long periods of time.
The Dot Foods Difference
But Dot Foods' size and scale allow them to buy full truckloads of products from manufacturers and consolidate those items in 12 distribution centers across the country.
Dot then sells these products in less-than-truckload (LTL) quantities to distributors weekly. Dot is unique in the sense that it can consolidate dry, frozen, and refrigerated products on one truck, allowing customers to access a larger assortment of items from a variety of temperatures.
This allows distributors and national account operators to get the exact products in the quantities they need and in a shorter window than going direct to the manufacturer. It also improves inventory turns, space utilization, and cash flow.
