DALLAS -- Costco Wholesale Corp. installed the chain's 200th fuel site with the Retalix StoreLine Fuel Solution. Costco operates an international chain of 433 membership warehouses and 200 fuel sites, installed in the warehouse parking lots, with annual sales in excess of $40 billion.
Costco selected Retalix as the preferred fuel application provider after extensive comparison and performance testing. Costco is currently operating with the Retalix StoreLine solution in all of its North American fuel stations. StoreLine fuel provides high throughput and reliability in an unattended environment that includes some of the busiest fuel sites in the country (measured on a "per dispenser" basis). The application ensures that only Costco members can purchase gasoline, and accepts debit, credit and cash cards for payment.
"For our station size, Costco has some of the busiest gasoline sites in the country. As such, our primary focus is on throughput and reliability. The Retalix Fuel solution excels in both of these critical areas," said Paul Latham, Costco's vice president of gasoline. "Our partnership with Retalix, both as a vendor and a technology partner, has provided us with improved functionality and the flexibility to adjust to an ever-evolving model."
