Food

The Food Distribution Industry has been Applied Logistics’ playground for the last fifty years.

Our engineers, who have an average hands-on experience of twenty years in this business, have successfully installed our Productivity Improvement Program in hundreds of distribution centers worldwide, including the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia (please click on “CLIENTS” in this website for detailed information.)
We focus primarily on the labor measurement and human relations aspects of the business to ensure that the end-results are not only as accurate, fair, cost-effective, and arbitration-proof as possible, but also meet employees’ expectations.
Our ultimate objective is to provide the absolute best work methods and engineered labor standards at the lowest price.
Today, we can state with total confidence that our Preferred Work Methods and Engineered Labor Standards, combined with a custom designed Incentive Program, have produced the best productivity gains ever experienced by any client anywhere in the world: a true “win-win” solution.
Incidentally, we have just completed the installation of Engineered Labor Standards for the order selection, letdown, and putaway operations in every department of the biggest under-one-roof food distribution center in the United States (2.5 million square feet). Additionally, our client has won the best productivity improvement award for two years in a row.
