CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Publix Super Markets has singed a multi-year agreement with Elogex, Inc., a network-based logistics solutions provider, to use the Elogex OneNetwork across its distribution network to link its operations with carriers and manufacturers on a unified platform.
The move will support the Lakeland, Fla.-based chain's execution requirements, including load tendering, on-line appointment scheduling, freight procurement and payment, and more strategic opportunities around continuous moves and inbound visibility, according to company officials.
"In order to be competitive in retail, transportation efficiency is a must," said Publix spokesman Lee Brunson. "This requires us to shorten lead times, increase service levels, and reduce out of stocks. We expect Elogex to help us reach increasing levels of supply chain performance and cost competitiveness."
Says Travis Parsons, president and c.e.o. of Elogex: "We have an established traction as a provider that can support both inbound and outbound processes, and are well-positioned to demonstrate the benefits to shippers, receivers and service providers that can only be achieved with a network-based solution."
