Associated Food Stores is replacing two legacy warehouse management systems in Montana with the TRICEPS solution from Retalix, and is expanding its use of the system at its headquarters distribution center in Salt Lake City.
Associated Food Stores is a cooperatively owned wholesale distributor delivering more than 750 truckloads of groceries each week to nearly 600 supermarkets in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming.
"We've had tremendous success with Retalix TRICEPS and have developed a deep appreciation of its capabilities at our headquarters facility," says Craig McPhee, executive director of distribution at Associated Food Stores. "We are optimistic about leveraging the technology across our other distribution centers."
Associated Food Stores is adding new automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) equipment-and integrating them with the previously installed TRICEPS WMS-at the headquarters location. It has also expanded this distribution center to more than a million square feet.
With the addition of the Montana sites, Retalix TRICEPS will help Associated Food Stores plan, coordinate and manage more than 1.7 million square feet of warehouse operations.
