In 1883, the year Barney Kroger opened his first grocery store, he didn’t need a distribution center. Fast forward 130 years, not only has that changed, The Kroger Company has quite literally reinvented the food distribution game this year with the completion of a highly automated and fully integrated 1.3 million square foot Kroger Distribution Center at Gillem Logistics Center in Forest Park, Georgia.
Join us on March 9th at 10:30AM for a overview and tour of the Kroger Distribution Center. We will start with an overview of the facility, a safety briefing, and then a tour of the The state-of-the-art distribution center in Forest Park, Georgia. Lunch will be provided along with ample opportunity to network with your peers and Kroger executives. As this is a business hours tour of a live distribution center, proper attire required including closed toe shoes and no high heels please. Tour limited to 50 guests.
