History

CaseStack was founded in 1999 by former Procter & Gamble executive, Dan Sanker. Besides the Santa Monica, CA office the Company also has a regional office in Fayetteville, Arkansas near Walmart’s headquarters, offsite locations in Manila and India, and American Institute of Baking food certified warehouses in Portland, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta and Scranton. There is also a warehouse in Toronto, Canada which aggregates to over 3,000,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space for the company.

Sustainability

CaseStack’s collaborative business practices aim to lower unnecessary costs and reduce negative environmental impact across all modes; less-than-truckload, truckload, air, ocean, intermodal, expedited and parcel. Sanker, also the founder and managing director of Green Valley Network, initiated the industry’s first biodiesel program and has been recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine as a "Green Supply Chain Professional to Know”.[4] Utilizing consolidation programs, offered by companies, including CaseStack, Hanson Logistics and Millard, is a way for mid-sized businesses to achieve a critical mass in transportation, so they can more easily compete with the largest consumer packaged goods companies. Retailer-driven consolidation programs combine various products headed to the same retailer on one purchase order, shortening delivery times and reducing costs and damages. Consolidation programs are sustainable by design; they reduce the frequency of less-than-truckload orders, thereby reducing carbon emissions. For suppliers, the conservation is most evident in transportation costs.[5]

Technology

CaseStack offers three distinct technology editions, a Transportation Edition for clients who outsource only transportation services, a Logistics Edition that includes warehousing, and an Enterprise Edition for clients who integrate with their enterprise-wide systems.
