CaseStack Success Story
SituationCaseStack was founded in Santa Monica, California, in 1999 by Dan Sanker, a former executive with Nabisco, Kashi, and Procter & Gamble. CaseStack is a provider of supply chain management services including warehousing, transportation, and supply chain management software. The company collaborates with retailers to provide sustainable logistics solutions.
Dan Sanker, CEO of CaseStack, noticed that larger suppliers had an advantage over their midsize counterparts when it came to warehousing and distribution. In an effort to level the playing field, Sanker sought to offer consolidated programs, efficient warehousing systems and streamlined transportation management to midsize suppliers. This would allow the suppliers to increase efficiency and cost savings.
