Walmart Canada Extends Contract with SCM until 2013

From exel.com: “Supply Chain Management (SCM), Canada’s largest retail logistics services organization and an Exel company, has signed a five-year contract extension for its business with Walmart Canada. SCM provides dedicated transportation, logistics and value-added services to Walmart’s 312 stores and supercentres nationwide.”

As part of its 15-year relationship with Walmart Canada, SCM supports the company’s ambient supply chain by operating five distribution centers totaling five million square feet. The facilities handle products including general merchandise, dry grocery and imports. SCM also coordinates all outbound transportation activities and directs a regionally dedicated fleet of 150 tractors and 350 drivers delivering products from distribution centers to Walmart stores.

“Walmart Canada’s commitment to customers is to provide unbeatable prices, one-stop shopping and friendly service, and our team operates the company’s ambient logistics network with this in mind,” said Dan Gabbard, president of SCM. “We strive to identify efficiencies that contribute to Walmart’s bottom line, so it can continue to serve millions of Canadians and grow its business.”
SCM was acquired by Exel in 2004 and operates multiple distribution centers in Mississauga and Cornwall, Ontario, and Calgary, Alberta.
