The Northeast Redistribution Center is expected to be operational in the summer of 2004 and will receive and redistribute food and food-related products to 14 Sysco operating companies in that region. It is the first center in a National Supply Chain project.
Recently, Sysco announced the appointment of William B. Day to the newly created position of vice president, supply chain management, to head the supply chain and redistribution initiatives. (ID Web news, 5/14/03).
