Benchmark Metrics & Definitions 

Understanding how your business is performing compared to similar businesses can help identify areas or improvement and opportunities to grow. In an industry with very slim profit margins, it's especially critical to manage costs in transportation and warehousing.

IFDA engaged a committee of foodservice distribution executives to identify commonly used performance metrics and develop consensus on common definitions. While companies use various KPIs for internal purposes, IFDA's business research and benchmarking surveys use these industry metrics.
