MonarchFx, a business unit of Tompkins International, announced the launch of its customer-centric fulfillment systems for the food and beverage sector.
“Few industries are experiencing more disruption than grocers and food producers. MonarchFx is perfectly positioned to help this sector build customer-centric fulfillment systems. Winners in the world of the new grocery have recognized it is not about online versus traditional stores, but rather the emergence of an entirely new shopping experience that leverages both,” MonarchFx CEO Jim Tompkins said in a statement.
This unichannel concept has grocery stores evolving into places to dine, taste and explore new products combined with an online presence to continue to drive brand loyalty, research, and ordering myriad delivery and pickup options, according to the Raleigh, N.C.-based company.
Also, Keith Goldsmith was appointed senior vice president. Most recently, he was chief commercial officer for Americold Logistics, one of the food industry’s largest logistics providers.
“Goldsmith has his fingerprint on some of the world’s leading supply chains and, combined with his expertise in food and beverage fulfillment, he is the perfect addition to our business model,” MonarchFx President Gene Tyndall said.
MonarchFx is an alliance of logistics service providers, supply chain technology providers and partners that provide logistics and fulfillment solutions. It serves retailers, brands and other sellers with multiple fulfillment channels, providing speed, quality, and efficiency and operating with distributed logistics centers for nationwide coverage, allowing for same-day delivery.
