Problem

As a distributor, they have to constantly grapple with the problems of last minute orders and uncertainty in their supply chain to be able to fulfill seasonal demands.

They were looking for a solution which can completely automate their distribution link with customers and enable them to forecast the demand so that it can be fulfilled in time.​

Once this system was in place, it became easy to monitor all the containers remotely. The F&B distribution company installed a set of such containers in a kitchens of a few of their restaurant partners.
