Companies don't always have relevant data on best practices and performance levels for their logistical processes. But factors such as reduced delivery times and logistical operations costs can have a huge impact on their bottom lines, particularly at consumer goods companies due to the high volumes they handle as well as the demanding service standards they require.

The "Distribution logistics benchmark and best practices in Mexico" study offers, for the first time in Mexico, an outlook of the logistics processes at the consumer companies operating in the country.

The research led by EGADE Business School Santa Fe Campus professor/researcher and MBA director Eric Porras, PhD., is the result of a collaboration between leading multinational companies in the food, beverage, and consumer goods industries members of ConMéxico, and the Tecnológico de Monterrey's Logistics and Trade Innovation Center headed by Miguel Martínez-Núñez, which is part of a strategic alliance between the Tecnológico de Monterrey and the Georgia Institute of Technology.

This research has allowed leading consumer goods companies to draw up a road map to achieve greater performance levels, by identifying and prioritizing areas for improvement in their primary distribution operations. The study's conclusions and main findings were published in T21 magazine (specializing in shipping, logistics, and cargo) in 2014, with the title "Best practices in distribution logistics in Mexico".
