The Wegmans Data Sync and Accuracy team is committed to using Internet technology to provide value to Wegmans, our customers, and trading partners. Our goal is to continuously improve our supply chain process to connect, communicate, and collaborate with the global commerce community. Integration of these processes will allow us to serve our customers better while improving our competitive position and profitability.
The Wegmans Logistics team uses a global network of transportation partners to ensure delivery of both perishable and non-perishable goods from our vendor partners to our various locations. Utilizing rail, road, and sea, we can manage the transportation of goods from across the country and around the world. It is our goal to ensure simplified and prompt delivery of our goods throughout our network.
One way that Wegmans remains efficient is by utilizing the capacity of our Wegmans Fleet. Our presence in six states allows for the opportunity to pick up and backhaul our own inbound freight upon completion of a delivery to one of our stores. This system maximizes the efficient use of our equipment and drivers to prevent or reduce empty miles.
The following initiatives were identified with the help of our internal cross-functional grocery team as a way to integrate best practices into our order procurement and logistic processes. We are asking our VMI vendors to once again help in continuing to provide incredible customer service by supporting the following initiatives:
Purchase Order Cut-Off Time
Grocery WMI orders need to be transmitted to Wegmans by 11:00 a.m. EST, 72 hours prior to the expected delivery date of the load, in order to be processed the same day. If the order is transmitted after 11:00 a.m. EST, please add an additional day to lead time for processing.
Product Weight Requirements
Wegmans Arranged and Wegmans Backhaul Pickups have a weight restriction of 42,000 pounds including pallets weight. This limit ensures the safety of our carriers, drivers, and product as well as compliance with DOT regulations.
