Reston, VA, (April 7, 2014) – Softeon, provider of the industry’s most functionally-rich supply chain software, announced this week that Casey’s General Stores, a leading convenience store with over 1,780 locations in 14 Midwestern states, has selected Softeon’s Warehouse Management System (WMS), Load Planning, Yard Management, and Labor Management to improve efficiency and accuracy of its DC operations and drive additional throughput from existing DCs to enable them to support addition of new retail stores in the same physical footprint.
“The Softeon WMS solution will streamline the entire supply chain from receipt of product at the distribution center through delivery to the stores. Increasing visibility into real-time inventory will allow us to better plan picking of store orders from a range of food, beverages, tobacco products, health and beauty aids, automotive products, and other nonfood items,” said Bill Walljasper, Senior VP & CFO, Casey’s. “In addition, the solution will automate processes to improve truck load planning for weekly store replenishments that are currently in excess of 350 stores on an average of 47 routes per day.”
