About the M&S Food Supplier Portal

Logistics Reply has worked with M&S to create an online supplier portal for its food suppliers, which will allow all incoming supplier product to become instantly visible to M&S as soon as it is despatched from each supplier despatch location.

The M&S portal was created and developed by Logistics Reply using the latest version of SideUp Reply™, Reply’s cloud-based supply chain and logistics suite, and has been specifically designed for ease-of-use, quick setup and will eradicate manual data input from suppliers to minimise potential human error for M&S.

Suppliers will use mobile scanners to scan product data into the cloud-based online portal and instantly create M&S-compliant ASN’s, SSCC’s and Transport Manifests in both electronic and print versions.

Logistics Reply will contract individually with each supplier to use the M&S supplier portal, and Reply will install / train on-site at each despatch location.
