Our Proven Success Stories Speak for Themselves

David Flitman, CEO, US Foods

“We launched a Descartes routing pilot in our first market. We continue to learn from this pilot and intend to pilot a second location before year-end with national implementation planned for 2024. Our routing improvement initiative, combined with our move to Descartes, will enable us to improve service levels to our customers, while also reducing miles driven and fuel consumption as highlighted by our third-quarter performance where we delivered the best cases per mile in our company's history.

"In addition, our flexible scheduling initiative is making solid progress as we have moved from the pilot phase to broader deployment across our network and it is now live in 16 locations. We continue to see significant improvements across our network and especially in our pilots, including a year-over-year reduction in turnover that is approximately twice the rate of improvement versus our other locations, a 30% improvement in safety, and continued improvement in productivity."
