Managing the complexity of bringing food from Dock to Stock
The processes and associated costs of each link in the supply and logistics chain is laden with risk and reward. What goes on behind the kitchen is not confined to the back office. Rather it’s the window to our cold chain management network of quality checks and measured calculations at multiple checkpoints, managed by experienced logistics specialists focused on the precise needs of each restaurant.
  • What goes on behind restaurant back offices is a stunning choreography of precise movements and measurements all designed to deliver a predictable, highly secure outcome to each customer. That means restaurant managers receive their precise orders at exactly the right time and restaurant-ready so they can focus on the customer experience.

  • With advanced technology and tools at my fingertips I can strengthen the personal connection I have with restaurant managers, providing up-to-date answers to their questions and always learning more about how we can help them run great restaurants.

Inbound Logistics

From supplier docks into our warehouse stock, Martin Brower is the last line of defense in ensuring the food products we handle are fresh and meet the highest consumer and industry standards. Our logistics specialists ensure the most efficient freight solutions are utilized through carriers who adhere to the same high standards to guarantee food safety and quality, ensuring that our cold chain is never compromised.

Inbound Freight Management

A highly-integrated suite of tools and processes, customized by Martin Brower logistics specialists for each customer, to create the most robust, flexible and efficient solution for managing the changing needs of complex restaurant operations.

Cold Chain (Three temperatures)

If the integrity of food is compromised, nothing else matters. On pallets, by the case and individual ingredients, our food supply chain experts monitor and document temperatures and non-conformities from supplier docks to our distribution centers and right through to restaurant delivery … we ensure quality at every step in the journey.

Warehousing

Warehousing the Martin Brower way is not a simple storage solution. Food quality and safety depends on proper caregiving to ensure the product integrity is intact, the life cycle of the ingredients is tracked and the environment is consistently and constantly safe – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – without fail and with a traceable, verified record.

Warehouse Management System (WMS)

The backbone of Martin Brower’s warehousing solutions, this system delivers robust data to reveal efficiencies, warehouse performance, interactions and labor planning insights. Each product is visible and automatically tracked from receipt to shipping and all points in between and is coordinated with voice-directed selection.

Voice-Directed Selection

A hands-free, paper-free and error-free tool which integrates with the WMS to support our warehousing experts with accurate product selection for each order.

Contingency Planning

Inherent to the food industry is exposure to a variety of potentially devastating risks. We can’t control weather, power outages or other unpredictable threats that may affect food security, but Martin Brower’s global network of logistics specialists have the proven experience to plan, manage and minimize the negative impact of these risks.

Outbound

Our drivers and supply chain specialists continually listen and provide counsel to our restaurants, ensuring their needs are met and exceeded. We continuously innovate and improve, offering more efficient and effective solutions to help them run great restaurants.

Advanced Routing Software

As part of our commitment to best practices in both environmental responsibility and cost reduction, our proprietary advanced routing software ensures miles, costs and carbon footprints are reduced and deliveries optimized.

Driver PDA (Personal Digital Assistant)

Simply put, this handheld PDA takes the paperwork and the guesswork out of the delivery transaction, improving the driver and customer experience while ensuring accurate and traceable product deliveries.

Continuous Temperature Monitoring (CTM)

A simple but vital solution using complex algorithmic calculations to ensure the ideal temperature is achieved across the continuum of food logistics. Real-time alerts and monitoring ensure brands are protected.
