FuelQuest to integrate systems

HOUSTON -- Brookshire Grocery Co. has selected FuelQuest's Fuel Management System (FMS) to automate its fuel operations. FuelQuest will deliver an end-to-end solution for Brookshire's expanding gasoline-center business. A key factor in Brookshire's selection was FuelQuest's experience in integration.

By selecting FuelQuest's FMS, we now have the flexibility to effectively manage numerous supply choices and transportation options, said Greg Nordyke, vice president, Transportation and Fuel Services. Through strategic sourcing, we plan to drive down [image-nocss] our inventory, procurement and transportation costs while increasing our flexibility and scalability. We believe FuelQuest has the state-of-the-art technology and industry expertise to drive value throughout our entire fuel supply chain.

Doug Haugh, FuelQuest COO said, We are proud to have such a progressive and forward-thinking customer as Brookshire Grocery Co. Our goal is to provide the same level of exceptional customer service to Brookshire's as they have been providing their customers for the past 77 years.

FMS begins with remote tank monitoring of inventory levels, proceeds through demand forecasting, auto replenishment, dispatch, delivery and finishes with back-office reconciliation and taxes.

Brookshire Grocery Co. currently has 77 gasoline centers in operation at Brookshire's and Super 1 Foods stores located throughout Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi. Based in Tyler, Texas, Brookshire has been serving grocery customers since 1928.
