Distribution

The distribution industry is facing a host of challenges, some new and some accelerated by the pandemic. While spending is expected to rise, manufacturers are embracing digital transformation, and direct-to-consumer trends threaten many segments of wholesale distribution. Labor shortages and supply-chain issues persist, eroding both service levels and margins.

CR3 possesses extensive distribution experience. Our experts are positioned to work closely with management to address both industry-wide challenges such as margin pressures from both suppliers and customers, as well as specific performance objectives such as improving case-fill rates and on-time performance. Our sophisticated turnaround and financial restructuring services can assist distressed and healthy companies alike, helping any management team benefit from CR3’s strategic and operational-improvement capabilities.
