Temperature - Controlled Logistics

Whether you are a food service provider, a retailer or a supplier to these industries, we can provide cost effective logistics solutions suited to your specific needs – without compromising on food quality. JIFPL coordinates and communicates with suppliers and retailers across the country to ensure the smooth flow of temperature controlled products (frozen, chilled & ambient) in a timely and reliable manner. This involves both Primary/Inbound and Secondary/Last Mile/Tertiary logistics operations.

We store over 1000 products in all temperature ranges – ambient, chilled and frozen – in our strategically located multi-temperature warehouses. Our fleet of multi-temperature, multi-size vehicles ensure that these products are shipped in the most suitable temperature conditions. And our information network uses GPS technology to keep track of all our vehicles to provide up to the minute information about all our shipments as they are delivered to 400+ stores in 100+ cities across the country. We are well-known as food service distributors, delivering food products from source to store.

Primary/ Inbound Logistics

Our fleet of refrigerated vehicles operates across the country to transport products from the supplier/manufacturer production plants to its strategically located Distribution Centers. Using demand and supply forecasting tools we can predict the inventory requirements for all our clients and this allows the company to manage its inventory at all the Distribution Centers and develop a fully optimized pick up schedule from the suppliers/manufacturers production units.

Secondary/ Tertiary/ Outbound/ Last Mile Logistics

Our Secondary fleet of multi-size, multi-temperature refrigerated vehicles operates from our Distribution Centers covering the last mile operations, delivering products in a temperature-controlled environment across 100+ cities. When clients need to restock, they simply place an order for all their requirements using our online ordering system. The nearest Distribution Center then prepares a consolidated shipment of products in the required quantities, which is then transported via refrigerated vehicles as per the delivery schedule.

In addition to our comprehensive end-to-end cold supply chain services, we also provide transport services to cater to different cargo loads, different time and temperature needs and different segments of the cold supply chain. Our services include:

  • Dedicated End-to-end logistics services - Full Truck Load or Part Load transportation from source to stores.
  • Primary/ Inbound services - transportation of products from source to warehouses- our own or client owned.
  • Secondary/ Outbound/ Last Mile services - transportation of products from warehouses to restaurants/ retail stores
  • Milk run delivery services - Door Pick-up, Door Delivery
  • Load Consolidation - Consolidation of your products with similar products from other clients to provide cost effective transportation.
  • Multi-modal transport.

Efficiencies and cost savings

Single interface

JIFPL acts as the single interface that the suppliers/manufacturers and the retailers have to interact for all their business requirements. This lean setup ensures faster query resolution and business transactions. Retailers get to order different products from different origins in a single consolidated shipment from a single source, thus ensuring less operational complexity and huge savings on the logistics costs. The supplier too benefits from - a single truckload (TL) shipment to a single destination instead of multiple less than truckload (LTL) shipments to multiple restaurants and yields massive cost savings for them as well.

Management of Lead-time requirements

(Lead Time is the period between a customer's order and the delivery of the product- the more urgent and variable your supply needs, the less lead time you prefer).

Suppliers need a longer lead-time as they have to source and process goods. They benefit from the advance schedules JI provides. Restaurants need a short lead-time as they do not have the space to hold large inventories and their requirements change frequently in response to frequently changing market demands. They benefit from the reliability of our demand forecasting tools and accurate inventory management.

Volume discounts

Combining the inventory requirements of multiple restaurants creates synergies and the accompanying discounts that can be passed onto its clients.
