Hannaford Goes Live With Outbound Logistics System

SCARBOROUGH, Maine - Hannaford Bros., a subsidiary of Delhaize America and an operator of 122 supermarkets and food and drug combination stores in the Northeast, announced it has successfully deployed a logistics solution from Cary, N.C.-based Supply Chain Intelligence.

The solution, called the Outbound Shipment Intelligence System, was implemented across Hannaford's enterprise to improve its transportation function. The system was deployed on a central server at Hannaford's corporate headquarters but is being operated by Hannaford Trucking Co. representatives at distribution centers using standard web browsers, giving users at Delhaize's Kash n' Karry facility in Plant City, Fla. the same access to the system as users at the South Portland, Maine facility.

Hannaford chose Supply Chain Intelligence's solution after an extensive review process, in part because of the ease of use, flexibility to address different processes at each distribution center, and the ability to reduce overall transportation costs.

"We've been looking for a new system for several years to replace our aging system, but hadn't found one that matched our needs until we scrutinized Supply Chain Intelligence's system," says Pam Goode, manager, transportation support systems for Hannaford. "With the 'what-if' capabilities resident in the system, we can model and refine our delivery mechanism to reduce transportation costs, and also improve our service to the stores."
