Supply chain management: Food service shippers partner like never before


An economic free fall is ushering in a new era of collaboration between manufacturers and distributors, said leading business leaders at the Intlernational Foodservice Manufacturers Association’s annual Chain Operator’s Exchange (COEX) meeting this week.

“We have dealt with a slump in consumer spending before,” said Tad Wampfler, senior vice president of supply chain management for Wendy’s International, Inc. “But couple that with the rise of petroleum and grain, and you reach a real crisis.”


For Wampfler and other Fortune 500 executives attending the meeting, that means finding new ways of doing business.
