Burris Logistics Renews Supply Pact With The Fresh Market


Last updated on June 13th, 2024 at 05:26 pm

Burris Logistics, a Milford, Delaware-based provider of customized retail distribution services specializing in temperature controlled supply chain solutions, has renewed a supply agreement with The Fresh Market, a North Carolina-based specialty grocery retailer with revenues of more than $1.7 billion and stores in 27 states across the U.S.

“When we began to redesign the supply chain process for The Fresh Market in 2007, we operated from one distribution center and handled approximately 1,800 different products,” said Donnie Burris, CEO of Burris Logistics. “Today, through custom retail distribution, we manage the procurement, inbound logistics, warehousing and transportation services for more than 5,000 products. This includes The Fresh Market’s signature perishable offerings, as well as health and beauty items.”

Since establishing a partnership with Burris, The Fresh Market has added more than 100 stores. In turn, Burris Logistics says it has maintained a reliable and highly efficient supply chain in the midst of this rapid growth by adding a second distribution center, expanding its dedicated fleet and enhancing all aspects of technology to make the supply chain seamless and simpler for both retailer and distributor.

Donnie Burris added, “Our custom distribution solution—unlike the traditional wholesaler model—provides a transparent procurement service. The Fresh Market has full control of the buying process and an understanding of the exact cost of goods. This allows the Fresh Market team to focus on selecting healthy choices and unique offerings that inspire and engage the consumer.”

Marc Jones, chief merchandising and supply chain officer for The Fresh Market, said, “As we have grown, Burris Logistics has grown with us—providing extraordinary service every day, while continually lowering our cost of distribution—supporting our goal to become the customer’s favorite place to shop.”
