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.
At the moment, the global FMCG industry has a value of over £570 billion. Until now 2015 was said to have been one of the best for the industry. In the UK, the government has invested over £11 million worth of funding into food technology. This has ensured that the UK becomes a secure leader, in the food technology market throughout the world. This new funding helps guarantee that new technologies and processes are developed to heighten efficiency and also reduce waste.
