CUB Works with Capstone Logistics on Last Mile Grocery Delivery

PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga. -- CUB and Capstone Logistics are collaborating to bring grocery and liquor deliveries to Minnesota residents. Capstone is currently deploying 300 independent contractors to 80 grocery stores and 27 wine and liquor stores.

CUB selected Capstone because of its cost-saving delivery model, powered by its proprietary MileZero platform. The technology optimizes route planning and synchronizes deliveries to multiple store customers, creating efficiencies and reducing costs. Delivery information is shared in real-time with the consumer and CUB through a white-labeled app.

"Today's consumer is busier than ever, and they shouldn't be treated differently if they can't find time to purchase their groceries physically in one of our stores. Our new online grocery pickup and delivery experience allows us to better deliver on our My CUB, My Way promise, giving customers who shop at CUB access to the same benefits and experience whether they prefer shopping in our stores or online through curbside pickup or home delivery," said Chad Bersie, director of e-commerce at CUB.

"Our grocery delivery solution provides the technology and logistics execution retailers need to offer omnichannel fulfillment," said Jon Rydel, EVP of Capstone's Last Mile division. "As online grocery sales continue to skyrocket, improving service needs to be a priority; and with Capstone Last Mile, retailers can offer their own branded solution that improves the total customer experience."

Priority Express Rebrands as Capstone Logistics to Meet Last Mile Demand During Pandemic

PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga. -- Priority Express, a logistics company in the courier and last mile delivery industry, announced today that it is rebranding following its acquisition by Capstone Logistics. The company will now operate as Capstone Logistics' last mile fulfillment solution.

Founded in 1994, Priority Express has long-standing relationships with partners in the North-East and Mid-Atlantic regions. In 2019, Capstone acquired the company to expand upon its existing last mile capabilities. As COVID-19 continues to impact consumer behavior, Capstone's now fully integrated solution aims to help partners meet their customers' evolving expectations and increased demand.

"Integration with Capstone's warehousing and transportation divisions enables us to rapidly expand our services and geographic footprint," said Jon Rydel, President of Capstone's last mile division. "Looking ahead, our focus is on leveraging this interconnected entity and our operational expertise to accelerate growth within the last mile sector."

Capstone's last mile services include:

* Expedited freight/distribution and reverse logistics at cross-docking facilities for pick-up and delivery of shipments requiring consolidation, repackaging, and/or sorting

* Scheduled, same-day, and next-day delivery for partners requiring fast, secure, and time critical shipments of highly sensitive items

* On-demand or STAT medical delivery which ensures dependable delivery service 24/7/365, exceeding competitor's on-time performance

Capstone has the ability to plug into and automate any segment of customers' networks. A proprietary logistics platform and mobile tracking app provide data-driven visibility, control, and workforce management for all parties within a network. Additionally, strategically placed cross dock facilities and an operational management system create cost efficiencies and reduce transit times.

"Having a reliable, direct-to-customer delivery solution has never been more critical," said Steve Taylor, CEO of Capstone Logistics. "Especially given recent challenges in the supply chain, our partners must navigate heightened customer expectations. They need to know that their products will reach the destination on time, every time. Our last mile solution gives customers complete visibility and control, providing them the assurance they need during these challenging times."
