Mt. Sterling distribution center will use solution to help process over 80,000 products

RedPrairie Corporation, a productivity solutions provider, announced today that its Warehouse Management solution has gone live in Dot Foods’ Mt. Sterling, Ill. distribution center. The largest food redistributor in the United States, Dot will use the system at their highest volume facility to help process over 80,000 products for grocers and food retailers of all sizes.

“To maintain and sustain continued growth at Dot Foods, we needed a system that would perform at a high enough level of efficiency to provide the kind of service our customers demand without any disruption,” says John Long, Dot Foods VP of Operations. “RedPrairie’s Warehouse Management solution is up to that task.”

Dot’s Mt. Sterling distribution center handles more than 60 percent of the $4 billion company’s order volume, and has cool, dry and frozen storage facilities. The company is currently running Warehouse Management with its cooler operations, with plans to implement alongside dry and frozen operations within the next year. The solution right now is assisting the organization with pallet building, list picking, and more efficient travel and directed work operations.

“Our solutions have always been built to help high-volume, rapid-growth companies like Dot Foods achieve their goals,” says RedPrairie CEO Mike Mayoras. “We are proud to support progressive distributors like Dot around the world, every day.”
