Schnuck Markets Pairs with Penske Logistics

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

As the retailer looks to a new milestone on the path towards a stronger supply chain network, Schnuck Markets has announced Penske Logistics as the new operator of Schnucks’ St. Louis NorthPark (SLNP) distribution center.

Todd Schnuck, Chief Executive & Chairman, Schnuck Markets“We are excited to have Penske Logistics managing our newest warehouse facility, and look forward to their ideas for providing exceptional service to our customers,” shared Todd Schnuck, Chairman and CEO, in a company release. Todd also noted that Penske is a great cultural fit, and has an entire team dedicated solely to managing and operating the SLNP warehouse efficiently to support and supply the 100 Schnucks locations in five states.

Penske, a warehouse management and transportation logistics organization employing more than 14,000 people, has conducted site tours of the SLNP warehouse; praising its design and technologies. Penske is currently preparing to begin managing supply and distribution operations at the SLNP facility, starting this spring, in alignment with Schnucks’ commitment to customers for quality and service.

“We share Schnucks strong commitment to customer service, running safe, efficient operations, and to supporting our associates. We are striving to ensure a seamless transition of the SLNP operation,” said Marc Althen, President of Penske Logistics in a statement. “We know thriving businesses depend on smooth warehousing operations, and from what we’ve observed, Schnucks’ SLNP facility is extremely well designed for streamlining and boosting the effectiveness of their delivery network. We appreciate Schnucks giving us the opportunity to take their ongoing customer commitment to deliver quality products at affordable prices to a whole new level with our supply chain solutions and supporting their plans for growth.”

This news comes on the heels of a series of clashes between Schnuck Markets and local unions. According to a report by the St. Louis Business Journal, Teamsters Local 688 voted Monday, 79 to 16, in favor of the new contract covering 102 Schnucks employees in the company’s Brighton warehouse.
