Key Performance Indicators for Food Supply Chain

The objectives of the research were to: (i) compare the relative perfomances of companies in the food distribution industry using existing KPI's (ii) collect the data necessary to calculate these indicators with a degree of statistical robustness, and (iv) provide the industry with information about its performance that it can use to use to improve the efficiency of its logistics.

This data would: (a) inform policy makers as to the effectiveness of the logistics system in this market sector, (b) allow inter-company comparison using data collected by common methods, and (c) enable contributors to quantify the impact of any interim operational changes made on their relative rankings.

This project was designed to follow up results of previous work, having used KPIs already proposed in other reports and projects to compare the performances of several food distribution operations.
