Kroger to expand use of logistics platform companywide
Mar 17, 2003 12:00 PM, staff and wire reportsThe Kroger Co has signed a multi-year, enterprise-wide agreement to expand its use of the Elogex OneNetwork. The Cincinnati OH-based retail grocery giant has been using the system for the past year across select distribution centers and will now extend the system to support the entire company.
Kroger went live with the Elogex OneNetwork in less than 90 days and quickly generated process improvements and bottom-line results that encouraged the company to implement across its enterprise. The company is also implementing automated on-line appointment scheduling in order to reduce time and costs associated with the order shipment life cycle.
A web-based platform to manage logistics planning and execution, the Elogex OneNetwork enables increased visibility to reduce supply chain costs and increase service levels. Companies can inter-network between shipping and receiving departments; customer sales representatives can confirm orders with merchandising; and retailers, manufacturers, and carriers can streamline processes across one common platform.
