FMCG Logistics

FMCG Logistics Process

Real-Time Market Data For FMCG Businesses

FMCG logistics or perishable logistics is the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) that need transporting quickly. They are products that sell quickly and cost-effectively. These goods are also called consumer packaged goods. FMCG products have a short shelf life because of high consumer demand (e.g., fruit and vegetables, soft drinks, and confections) or because they are perishable (e.g., meat, dairy products, and baked goods).

FLS creates a one-stop-shop cold-chain logistics services for FMCG industry manufacturers, wholesalers, F&B service providers, supermarkets and more who need to deliver perishable items in the quickest possible timescale to satisfy high levels of consumer demand.
