Nisa-Today’s is set to trial tri-temperature deliveries to retailers.
Stephen Hunter, MD of the buying group’s logistics department, said the project was at a very early stage but added: “We are gauging interest from our members and are asking selected members to volunteer for potential distribution trials for ambient, frozen and chilled in a single drop.”
The move comes after Costcutter unveiled plans to trial tri-temperature distribution for its retail members with the aid of Nisa (‘One-stop drop trials’, The Grocer, May 28, p6). Costcutter sales and development director David Thompson said it was an attempt to match the multiples’ capacity for one-stop drops.
Separately, Nisa-Today’s has launched a waste collection service for members in partnership with Biffa, offering reductions of up to 30% and saving retailers time. And it has introduced a pest control service in partnership with EcoLab.
