K has a really good organization of transportation and storage of materials and finished products to have to minimize costs. To do that K uses partners; it’s more efficient andcost-effective.

These supermarkets are efficient. And k has good relationships with its partners. To the distribution, K helps retailers. To drive sales, K isinvolved in initiatives that help add value for retailers. So K keeps a control on the distribution.
Just-in-time system: K can provide an efficient stock inventory system. Just-in-time meansthat just enough product is made to fulfill orders and limited stock is kept. It’s a technique which allows products to arrive on the site exactly as they are necessary, what allows to reduce the levelsof stock and by there even the investments and freshly which are connected with it.
