Iowa-headquartered convenience store chain integrates Gravitate’s solutions for optimizing fuel management, dispatching its 100-plus trucks

Casey’s General Stores recently went live with Gravitate’s artificial intelligence-powered Best Buy & Dispatch solution.

The software will help Casey’s, a convenience store chain headquartered in Iowa with more than 2,400 stores across the Midwest, optimize fuel supply for all its locations, dispatch its 100-plus trucks, and manage outside carriers.

“We went through a thorough market assessment to find an integrated supply optimization and dispatch solution,” said Nathaniel Doddridge, Casey’s vice president of fuel. “Gravitate provided the most extensive solution and, by far, the most sophisticated. From Supply Management to Best Buy, Dispatch, and In-cab, their software is smart, effective, and easy to use.”

Gravitate’s Best Buy & Dispatch solution enhances productivity and utilization, the company said. Through automated order creation and route optimization, it can increase dispatcher productivity by up to 40%. It also leverages supply optimization technology that helps improve fuel supply decisions and minimize the laid-in cost of fuel across a complex network.

“Our teams worked closely together during the implementation, with the Casey’s fuel and logistics teams providing detailed feedback on features and the user experience,” said Tom Hunt, Gravitate account executive. “As such, the In-cab application and dispatch board sets their drivers and dispatchers up for success.”

The solution will play a key role in helping the convenience store achieve its strategic goals, enabling Casey’s to improve customer care by keeping fuel available.

“Gravitate is driver tested and driver approved,” Hunt said.
