Kroger is the second-largest brick-and-mortar retailer in the U.S. The nationwide chain is a favorite of consumers, known for its low prices and wide variety of products. Kroger has 2757 stores across the country, making this retailer an important partner for any vendor. Creating and maintaining a strong relationship with this chain means understanding and following Kroger’s pallet requirements.
Kroger’s pallet, packaging, and shipping requirements center on optimizing the grocery supply chain to get high-quality products to customers faster. Like many retailers, Kroger will reject any pallets that do not meet their standards and may charge a fee if they have to transfer products from an unacceptable pallet to an acceptable one.
