Penske Logistics helps deliver freshness to growing convenience store chain

Challenge: A leading retail convenience store chain desired major improvements in replenishing its stores with fresh food items. The solution needed to facilitate daily collection, staging and delivery of fresh-baked goods and refrigerated foods by truck to every store across a wide geographic area.

Solution: Penske Logistics implemented a dedicated contract carriage solution using the latest supply chain technology. Order information now flows to Penske via EDI into its logistics management system where it is assembled by route and generates a store-specific manifest.

Results: On-time delivery and fresh food replenishment has improved significantly along with customer satisfaction. Consolidation of vendor deliveries has created cost-reducing economies of scale. Store operation processes are now simplified with fewer deliveries made and remaining deliveries are scheduled on a more opportune basis.
