Sherwood Foods Case Study

Sherwood Foods Case Study

In the demanding food distribution industry, few companies have succeeded and grown like Sherwood Food Distributors. Founded in Detroit in 1969 by Alex Karp and Earl Ishbia, the company is now one of the largest independent distributors of meat products in the U.S. 

CHALLENGE

Shipping 16 million pounds of food products weekly – many of which are highly perishable – in perfect condition and on-time is key to Sherwood serving its 5,000 customers. Missing one tight delivery window can significantly impact customer satisfaction and business operations.
