WAWA, Pa. -- Mid-Atlantic c-store retailer Wawa Inc. has selected SolArc Inc., a provider of enterprise supply and trade management solutions for the global energy industry, to manage the chain's fuel supply and trading operations.
The agreement marks SolArc's first deal with a major customer in the downstream retail industry, including c-stores, truck stops and gasoline retailers.
With more than 540 stores (157 sell gasoline), Wawa is a privately held company with stores located in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
“At Wawa, our core purpose is to simplify our customers' daily lives,” said Jim Bluebello, vice president of procurement and logistics for Wawa. “Part of that commitment includes maintaining stock levels on the products they are looking for, and that includes making sure we maintain proper fuel supplies as well. SolArc RightAngle gives us the tools to do that.”
The program will enable the Wawa to manage its fuel supply-chain more profitably and effectively, Bluebello said.
Launched in 1994, SolArc RightAngle offers enterprise integration between traders, schedulers and accountants, providing each with the best available, up-to-date information needed to manage complex trading activities.
