Ahold Delhaize to Open Additional Self-Managed Distribution Centers

Specialty Food Association

ADUSA Supply Chain, a chain of companies that serves the East Coast brands of Ahold Delhaize, will convert five additional distribution centers to the retailer’s self-managed network in 2022. This brings the total number of network facilities to 24, up from 17 at the outset of Ahold Delhaize’s three-year transformation plan.

The facilities that will transition into the ADUSA Supply Chain network in 2022 include distribution centers in Bethlehem and York, Pennsylvania; Chester, New York; and two fully automated frozen facilities in Mountville, Pennsylvania and Plainville, Connecticut, opening in partnership with Americold.

In 2021, the ADUSA Supply Chain network has converted procurement services for two facilities in Freetown, Massachusetts into the self-managed network and will round out the year by opening two new distribution centers in Mauldin, South Carolina and Manchester, Connecticut, as well as converting procurement services at facilities in Jessup, Maryland, and Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

“This is one of the largest supply chain transformations ever undertaken in our industry,” said Chris Lewis, president of ADUSA Supply Chain, in a statement. “Because of the commitment of our teams and a strong ecosystem of partners, we are on track to create not only one of the biggest supply chains on the East Coast, but the most efficient and effective.”
