Grocery and foodservice supplier McLane Company Inc has renewed its service agreement with Whitehouse Station NJ-based QuickChek Corporation.
The extended agreement, which continues a 28-year relationship, was developed to stimulate a partnership for long-term growth. It will include a complete supply chain solution for products to QuickChek’s 154 fresh convenience market locations in New Jersey, New York’s Hudson Valley and Long Island.
During the renewed agreement, QuickChek plans to test the Premium Order Management Suite Reclamation application. This app streamlines the reclamation process by identifying items that can be returned for credit and sending a detailed report of scanned reclamations digitally.
Named the 2016 National Convenience Store Chain of the Year, QuickChek already takes advantage of various solutions offered by McLane. These include the McLane Link customer portal that allows customers to access key information such as order activity and operational metric data from their computer or tablet and McLane’s Center for Category Innovation that combines the knowledge of McLane experienced category managers and supplier partners with McLane’s extensive data warehouse to provide customers with objective sales data down to the zip code level. The resulting market insights determine the best product mix scenarios and key selling opportunities for the stores.
McLane buys, sells and delivers more than 50,000 different consumer products to nearly 110,000 locations across the United States. It is a wholly owned unit of Berkshire Hathaway Inc (NYSE: BRK) and employs more than 20,000 teammates.
