Kraft Foods Indonesia was changing its distribution model from single distributors to many distributors. Previously, goods move from factory to one single national distributors warehouse before they distribute all goods to their several branches all around Indonesia. Since we will have many distributors, our drop points will increase from one to hundreds. Therefore, one of my project was to create one big National Distribution Center (NDC) in Cikarang to received all goods from factories. This NDC implementation was proven successfully to maintain buffer stock and reduce bullwhip effect from supply chain planning. This is my photo with team who implemented Kraft’s NDC. Big guy in the middle is Jim Brown, Logistic Specialist from Kraft US.
