Last Mile Solutions for Food Service
End-to-end visibility, so your products stay fresh and safe. Win your final mile.
When it comes to food safety, freshness is essential. It’s important to have visibility and efficiency throughout your delivery process to stay ahead of all your deliveries. Only Appian FinalMile from TMW can provide the long-term, efficient solution you need to win your last mile operations.
As the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) comes into full force, food suppliers in the USA are more aware than ever of the need to be proactive, rather than reactive, when it comes to dealing with food contamination. Transporting food, and all the trucks, drivers, planning, and preparation it requires plays a vital role in ensuring that the food supply is safe.
