Meet Kroger’s EDI Requirements to Become an Approved Vendor

Kroger is the largest supermarket chain by revenue in the United States with just over $109 billion in sales more than 2,700 locations. In addition to their grocery stores, Kroger operates 37 manufacturing facilities, around 1,300 fuel centers, and over 2,000 pharmacies.

Additional Kroger Compliance Information:

Kroger uses distribution centers spread throughout the country to keep their retail stores steadily supplied with fresh inventory. Most of the time, pallets enter one end of the distribution center for storage in temporary trays before loading onto a truck on the other end of the building and heading to the retail store. This keeps the supply chain moving smoothly.
