Emerging trends to disrupt European food distribution

Materials handling and logistics automation company Dematic says a number of emerging trends in the European food and grocery markets could soon ‘distrupt the food distribution chain’.

In a white paper it identified the rise of e-retailing, in both home delivery and ‘click and collect’ models; a shift by consumers from weekly or monthly ‘big shops’ at out of town megastores to smaller but more frequent use of local ‘convenience’ stores, and in the UK the rise of ‘discounters’ such as Aldi and Lidl, as trends set to distrupt the market.
