Direct Market is the first marketplace dedicated to short distribution channels for retailers, with an integrated logistic service.
1.Consumers are more involved in how they consume: they want to purchase local farm fresh products and to know where their come from. 2.Retailers would like quality products and positive brand recognition from their customers. They also need their supply chain to be a secured one and they need to have sustainable performance and maintain their profitability. 3.Producers expect a more equitable remuneration for their work. They also want to focus their attention on the quality of the products and secure their activity. Direct Market offers the only solution to manage the supply of local products in a massive way via an online secured shop for retailers where producers and products are referenced. Once retailer has placed an order, we take care of picking up the production, order preparation and delivery to retailers. We provide the traceability of logistic flows and monitoring of the health aspects of products by using the blockchain.
We also manage secure billing and payment through the ACPR certification delivered by French Central bank on behalf of all.
We do not negotiate producer prices. We do not receive 1 euro returning to the producer because payments are deposited in escrow accounts.
We have developed an automated pricing system that allows for full transparency covering the whole distribution chain.
Direct Market is a flexible and adaptable solution. A retailer who connects Direct Market to his existing flows, without using integrated Direct Market logistics, will be able to certify the share he gives to each producer.
Our offer is complete until the shelving: products are sold in specific corners. If a store chooses to use our solution, we provide it with a signage kit and other accessories to catch the attention of the consumer. Final consumers can find local products which are not more expensive in their usual store.
