Zucchetti Spain, the leading software manufacturer for businesses, addresses the main challenges of wholesale distribution in a new didactic guide. Supply chain management processes have evolved. It is essential to ensure effective communication and transparent information in all phases of the production cycle. Proper stock forecasting and planning are necessary.
The goal? Reduce delivery times, improve productivity, and optimize costs. Ultimately, enhance the brand and improve customer service.

We are in the era of Logistics 4.0, where everything must be interconnected. New B2B selling methods have also changed. Companies need to adapt to a new omnichannel 360º management scenario, with traditional and online sales, where demand forecasting is crucial for intelligent decision-making.

In this scenario, ERP software has become the essential solution to enhance efficiency and control in all phases of the process.

ERP Software, Key in Logistic Transformation
Zucchetti Spain highlights in this guide the importance of ERP for logistics transformation in the distribution sector. This enterprise resource planning software integrates all processes of the supply chain.

It is the backbone of the business, the solution that ensures everything is connected and enables automation at all levels: production, warehouse, sales, transportation, and communication.

"With the implementation of a Distribution ERP that connects all essential software solutions for the company, a 360º management is achieved, ensuring comprehensive control of all areas."

On one hand, ERP allows the company to connect with the warehouse management solution (WMS). This facilitates operational efficiency in stock and inventory management, shipment tracking, and improvement of transportation routes to optimize costs.

On the other hand, it is a decisive solution for decision-making. ERPs equipped with Business Intelligence tools allow the analysis of historical data to make predictions about demand evolution. This helps in production decisions and defining the B2B sales strategy.

New Technologies Play a Crucial Role in Distribution 4.0
The key for wholesalers and distributors to optimize costs lies in digital transformation. It is necessary to use an advanced ERP that incorporates tools to facilitate process automation.

New technologies such as AI, Big Data, or IoT play a crucial role in facilitating this change. As outlined in the new guide, available for free at, not all ERP systems are suitable for distribution companies.

The key is to choose a flexible and customizable solution, based on 8 fundamental axes:
B2B sales and digital catalog, warehouse management, traceability management, Business Intelligence, logistics management, rebates and discounts, transportation route management, and customer relationship management.

In this line, the guide emphasizes the importance of having a technological partner that maintains constant technological surveillance and provides the necessary solutions and functionalities at all times. The distribution sector is constantly changing.

Technologies are changing the rules of the game.
Scalability is crucial for the software to adapt to the future logistical needs of the company
