Kroger EDI Requirements

Kroger uses distribution centers that accelerate the supply chain for the retail stores. Suppliers send product to the distribution centers. Trucks from the suppliers pull up on one side of the building and unload palletized products. Automated conveyer belts and machines break out the product from the pallets into trays for temporary storage. Based on specific retail store demand, the product trays are then re-assembled into multi-product pallets. The resulting pallets are loaded onto trucks going out to the stores docked on the other side of the building.
