Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and University of Arkansas representatives welcomed CaseStack Inc. employees to Northwest Arkansas with an informational luncheon at the World Trade Center in Rogers Jan. 16.
Santa Monica, Calif.,-based CaseStack is a third party logistics company that is on the forefront of developing sustainable and cost-effective logistics solutions.
In October CaseStack opened its first regional sales office in Fayetteville.
Dan Sanker, CaseStack’s CEO, said he chose to bring his business to Northwest Arkansas because of the area’s sustainability push and Wal-Mart’s efforts to make its business practices more efficient and environmentally friendly.
“It’s a no-brainer for us to be here,” Sanker said. “There is an expertise and culture here that is fostering sustainability growth. The part that is so inviting to me is that there are a lot of questions and we want to be part of the solution.”
David Free, director of Wal-Mart’s third party LTL consolidation program, spoke about Wal-Mart’s push for efficient, sustainable, cost-effective measures, and CaseStack’s role in helping vendors find logistics solutions that help both the environment and the company’s bottom line.
Jon Johnson, professor of management at the University of Arkansas’ Walton College of Business, spoke about the proven benefits of finding sustainable, eco-friendly logistics solutions.
