ARCOP Uses CDC for Redistribution Services

More fast food chain brands in the U.S. look to redistribution to reduce costs and optimize supply chains

Lemont, Ill.June 11, 2013—ARCOP Inc. (ARCOP), the national non-profit food service supply chain cooperative of Arby’s Restaurant Group Inc., selected Consolidated Distribution Corporation LLC (CDC), for its customized redistribution services needs.

“With more than 3,400 franchisee and company-owned restaurants in our system, we found a partner in CDC that can better optimize LTL, difficult and time-sensitive product shipments from our suppliers to regional U.S. distributors,” said Matt Cosson, Vice President of Distribution Management, ARCOP.CDC is able to provide us with a high level of customer service and visibility which is vital to managing our supply chain needs and demands.”

A fast casual and casual dining supply chain solutions company, CDC’s redistribution model reduces supply chain costs by shipping truckload quantities of slower moving frozen and nonperishable food items, disposable supplies and other products to its warehouses. CDC is then able to create truckload shipments of consolidated products to the distributor, resulting in a lower landed cost. ARCOP selected CDC as its redistribution provider because of the company’s best-in-class reputation; commitment to meeting customer needs; and supply chain visibility.

“We’re pleased to be working with ARCOP to better serve Arby’s restaurants,” said Bryan Gaines, Director of Sales, CDC. “Our unique redistribution model will give them customized consolidation services, while delivering important efficiency gains and further optimized cost savings.”
