to streamline operations

Convenience store chain Sheetz has selected the HighJump Software’s warehouse management system (WMS) to streamline its supply chain operations for replenishment of retail locations. Sheetz is a family-owned convenience store chain operating more than 370 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, and North Carolina.
Sheetz began the search for a new WMS as part of an initiative to lower IT costs and reduce business risk associated with their previous warehouse management system.
“Our previous system was expensive to maintain, and performing system upgrades was cost-prohibitive,” said Eric Foose, Software Services Manager from Sheetz. “By not staying current on the most recent version we introduced unnecessary risk to business operations.”
With the HighJump WMS, Sheetz can replicate many of its current best-practice business processes and have a simplified upgrade process that reduces total cost of ownership. The system will manage replenishment to all retail locations from Sheetz’s distribution center, which includes product storage at frozen, refrigerated, and ambient temperatures. Additionally, the warehouse management system will manage Sheetz’s food production facility, which creates ready-to-eat food products including sandwiches, wraps, subrolls, burger buns, doughnuts, and baked sweet goods.
