Associated Food Stores Expanding Warehouse Management System to 2 More DCs

09/04/2008
Associated Food Stores is replacing two legacy warehouse management systems (WMS) in Montana with a system is successfully deployed at its headquarters distribution center in Salt Lake City.

The wholesaler is installing Retalix's Triceps system, a real-time WMS designed to boost supply chain productivity by driving more accurate tracking of inventory levels, reduced handling and inventory charges, increased labor efficiency, and better management of store orders.

Associated has used the system since 2000. "We've had tremendous success with Triceps and have developed a deep appreciation of its capabilities at our headquarters facility," said Craig McPhee, executive director of distribution at Associated. "We are optimistic about leveraging the technology across our other distribution centers."

Associated is also adding new automated storage and retrieval systems equipment and integrating it with the previously installed Triceps WMS at headquarters, and has also expanded this distribution center to more than 1 million square feet. With the addition of the Montana sites, the wholesaler will use the system to plan, coordinate and manage more than 1.7 million square feet of warehouse operations.

Salt Lake City-based Associated is a cooperatively owned wholesale distributor that serves approximately 600 supermarkets in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Wyoming.
