Monitor Shipping and Receiving

It is important to monitor the shipment and delivery so that there are no issues of overstocking and understocking products. Inventory needs should be monitored, especially for products that have short expiration dates. Moreover, the manager should keep a tab on the expected delivery dates.

Online delivery services

Many supermarkets have started offering online deliveries primarily to customers that live within a designated distance from the store. Most of the time, products are offered at reduced prices to encourage online deliveries.

Parking and Security
