Vendor Consolidation Initiative
The typical convenience store receives merchandise from not only a traditional wholesaler but also a wide variety of Direct Store Delivery (DSD) vehicles. This DSD-focused model requires that convenience store operators spend a significant amount of resources checking in vendors and processing invoices - both of which increase cost.
Core-Mark's Vendor Consolidation Initiative (VCI), unifies this fragmented process via our multi-temperature platform, which includes refrigerated docks and tri-temperature trailers. This platform, coupled with our high frequency delivery model, enables Core-Mark to deliver a full array of products - including and most importantly Fresh items - that enable operators to stay competitive and relevant in today's ever-changing c-store retail space.
