Subway, the world’s largest submarine sandwich franchise, has named C.H. Robinson Worldwide its Supply Chain Partner of the Year. Selected from 115 supply chain providers in North America, C.H. Robinson was recognized for its outstanding support in supply chain management.
Jan Risi, president of Subway’s Independent Purchasing Cooperative, said, "In 2004, Subway franchise and C.H. Robinson formed a strategic alliance that has produced benefits far greater than initially anticipated. C.H. Robinson assisted us with the development and implementation of our two-phase managed freight solution, our transportation center, and our portfolio freight bidding. This has resulted in the identification and realization of millions of dollars in documented savings and cost avoidance for Subway franchisees."
C.H. Robinson’s Transportation Management Center (TMC), which provides a transparent and neutral approach to transportation management, helps Subway franchise to better manage its freight costs through greater visibility into Subway’s franchise supply chain. TMC’s systems give Subway franchises visibility by identifying the origin, size of order, and rates, helping to spot supply chain inefficiencies.
With more than 29,500 locations in 87 nations, the Subway restaurant chain is headquartered in Milford CT.
