Do you believe shelf service and shelf optimization no longer play a role now that e-commerce is taking control? We believe that it is far from reality. It is more important than ever to optimize your brand’s image at the POS. Shelf layout, product quantity, shelf size, category of products and floor space are only some of the factors to consider. With TMS you can be reassured that your products will be presented perfectly, no matter where and when. We work with a vast network of shelf personnel, POS managers and merchandisers with retail experience and relevant training.
First in, first out
Restocking according to the FiFo method
We make sure that your products are exactly where your shoppers expect them: on shops’ shelves. Our personnel takes care of restocking and checking for freshness by using the first-in, first-out method. Our quality of service combined with skilled work forces helps you to increase your brand recognition and loyalty.
Checking best before dates
No customer likes buying a product that has expired. But it can happen easily – and have a negative effect on your brand image and loyalty. For this reason, it is becoming more and more important that employees with a love for detail regularly check the best-before date. Our personnel are trained to pay attention to aspects such as these.
Order management and merchandise planning
Thorough planning is the first step towards increasing your brand’s success – but actually making it happen is key. Merchandisers take care of the order management whereas our back office makes sure that everything is planned through.
Streamline your return management by working with professional staff who know the ins and outs of returns processing and preparation.
