Warehousing and transportation company CaseStack expanded its retailer consolidation program to Chicago.
In cooperation with retailers and manufacturers, the third party logistics provider is making its Chicago area warehouse available to combine multiple less-than-truckload shipments headed to the same retailer distribution center onto one truck. When a customer joins the program, CaseStack determines where to warehouse their goods based upon the location of other products retailers order at the same time. Retailers then submit “master puchase orders” listing those multiple products. Using a Web-based program, CaseStack consolidates the LTL requests into full truckloads headed directly to the retailer.
“CaseStack’s consolidation model has proven cost effective to suppliers and retailers because the entire supply chain becomes more efficient,” said Dan Sanker, CEO and president of the company.
CaseStack has warehousing operations in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Portland, Ore., Scranton, Pa., and Toronto, Canada.
