Cruise Lines


A cruise ship’s supply chain is the most complex and unforgiving in the food business. The challenge is to effectively manage demand planning, logistical support, and coordination of suppliers and warehouses world-wide, while tracking thousands of products from the time they are ordered until they are consumed on the vessel- in any number of currencies and units of measure! High rates of staff turnover are also common, so applications must have simple interfaces and intuitive functionality.
