Productivity Benchmarking Industry Report

In partnership with the Retailer Owned Food Distributors & Associates (ROFDA), FMI launched a productivity benchmarking survey. The  survey results are complied in the Productivity Benchmarking Industry Report, which provides key benchmarks, metrics and insights, enabling companies to compare their performance with that of other wholesalers and self-distributing retail chains. 201 facilities in 25 states participated in the initial survey resulting in one of the largest and diverse warehouse productivity studies in North America. Each survey participant also received a complimentary Confidential Personalized Productivity Report. Full Report
