Elogex announced that Shaw's Supermarkets Inc. has selected the Elogex solution to dynamically optimize and execute Shaw's transportation operations. Shaw's manages 185 Shaw's Supermarkets and Star Market store locations and two distribution centers throughout New England.

Shaw's said it selected Elogex due to its unmatched capabilities for collaborating on shared logistics processes like appointment scheduling and continuous moves. With the Elogex solution, Shaw's will automate the entire process of managing logistics across their extensive supplier base.

"Elogex was a perfect match due to their extensive experience with leading grocers and large consumer goods suppliers," said Mike Powell, senior vp of supply chain at Shaw's Supermarkets. "We needed a complete platform for collaborative logistics that included inbound, outbound, monitoring and multi-enterprise asset sharing and Elogex was the only vendor that fit the bill."

Shaw's expects significant efficiencies by vendor compliance to Shaw's inbound routing guide and streamlining the appointment scheduling process. Once the inbound loads are tendered, Shaw's dispatchers will have full visibility of logistics events via proactive alerts to a browser, PDA or mobile phone.
