Operating Sustainably

Our operational footprint spans more than 190 locations throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland and the Bahamas. We purchase and deliver food and nonfood products and other supplies to our more than 425,000 customers through a fleet of approximately 7,500 delivery trucks.

Improving the environmental impact of our operations is important to us – it benefits both the environment and our bottom line. We use proven technologies to continuously improve resource efficiencies in our logistics chain and in our warehouses. As we continue to refine our strategy, we will explore opportunities to set operational efficiency targets.
