CaseStack Expands In Chicago

Santa Monica-based CaseStack, a provider of outsourced warehousing and logistics for the grocery store market, announced today that the firm has expanded its Retailer Consolidation Program into Chicago. According to the firm, its program combines multiple shipments from different suppliers, to the same retailer distribution center, onto the same truck, reducing costs and increasing efficiency to all of the parties. The firm said it has been operating a warehouse in Chicago for a number of years, but the program specifically helps regional manufacturers improve their efficency in delivery to such retailers as Walmart Stores. CaseStack is venture backed by Clarity Partners, Kline Hawkes, Blumberg Capital, and Garage Technology Ventures.
