Fayetteville-based CaseStack announced Wednesday (March 12) that its Atlanta, Ga., facility has expanded its Wal-Mart consolidation program in the southeast region to include all 42 of the retail giant’s regional distribution centers.
This expansion allows the Atlanta facility to be a nationwide single point consolidation center out of the Southeast providing manufacturers and importers in the region an opportunity to lower distribution costs as well as improve on-time performance to Wal-Mart, the logistics company notes in the release.
CaseStack said it continues to create collaborative consolidation programs with top retailers and grocery chains (Wal-Mart, Kroger, Whole Foods) which include inbound and outbound transportation, warehousing, pick and pack as well as order fulfillment. The company said these consolidation programs are tailored to meet each supplier’s unique distribution needs.
"Each new consolidation program gives us another solution providing our clients a cost and service competitive advantage. When our clients grow, we grow. We'll continue bringing the family of people, processes and technology together in new collaborative ways," said Dan Sanker, CEO of CaseStack.
The expansion of the southeast Wal-Mart consolidation program is just one example of how CaseStack Inc. continues to grow and expand their logistic services to ensure CPG suppliers receive the most cost effective and efficient means of distribution nationwide. Consolidation of less-than-truckload orders into full truckloads enables CaseStack to lower distribution costs, reduce damage claims and reduce out of stocks and shortages, resulting in a significantly improved supplier's scorecard, he said.
CaseStack Inc. operates consolidation centers in six regions throughout North America. Facility locations include Buena Park, Calif.; Atlanta, Ga.; Naperville, Ill.; Dallas; Scranton, Pa.; Kent, Wash.; and Toronto, Canada.
