Multi-Unit Accounts

Efficiently moving product through the supply chain

As the nation's largest food redistributor, Dot helps manufacturers and distributors improve efficiencies in serving multi-unit accounts. Dot offers multi-unit operators tremendous selection, weekly deliveries to approved distributors and national coverage.

Improved Product Sourcing

Multi-unit operators can shop Dot's selection of more than 112,000 SKUs to source new products, increasing sales for all stakeholders. Dot's volume and reach are unparalleled in the industry. Because Dot already sells to more than 4,000 distributors on a weekly basis, we give multi-unit operators access to over 830 manufacturers and 112,000 items that are available - with no individual product line minimum to their distributors.  By keeping a consistent flow of products to the distributors, multi-unit operators can be assured access to the products they need, when they need them.

Limited Time Offer Management

Promotions and LTOs are challenging for everyone in the supply chain. Demand is unpredictable. Timeliness -- getting product into the right hands at the right time -- is critical. Dot helps supply chain partners manage LTOs efficiently by creating a central location for initial product roll-out, providing one control point for communication, simplifying replenishment to the redistributor and reducing expenses through consolidation. Dot's weekly deliveries allow responsiveness to changes in demand and assume products make it to market quickly when needed. Plus, Dot reduces the need for distributors to buy in bulk, improving service and minimizing obsolete risk.

Increased Compliance and Standardization

Multi-unit operators rely on distributors to stock the products they need to provide a consistent experience and control costs. Through weekly Dot deliveries, distributors have greater control over their inventory, so they're more likely to have a steady supply of the products operators need. This increases compliance throughout the supply chain and allows for standardization of additional products in the future.

Improved Service

Dot's program helps distributors improve service levels to multi-unit operators.  Through Dot, distributors place orders with short two to four day lead-times and get weekly deliveries on a Dot truck.  We schedule all deliveries and take pride in our 97% on-time track record.
