California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010

The California legislature enacted the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010, which became effective January 1, 2012. The purpose of the Act is to ensure that retailers disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chain. The Stater Bros. Markets Family of Employees continues to strive for the highest level of honesty, integrity and ethics in its business practices and, to further this goal, has implemented policies and procedures aimed to prevent slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain.

EDI NEX/DEX Standards

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the exchange of business documents through electronic transmission of one computer system to another computer system using a standard format. These standards define the way businesses communicate documents between each other on a daily basis.

Direct Store Delivery (DSD) is when vendors deliver their products directly to the stores bypassing the warehouse. There are various ways of receiving the vendors' items through electronic communications: NEX (Network Exchange) and DEX (Direct Exchange).

NEX (Network Exchange) is a type of DSD receiving that uses an electronic invoice, or EDI 894, transmitted directly to Stater Bros. Corporate office where it is forwarded to the appropriate stores. The invoice will appear in the back receiving system, just as DEX invoices are received after the driver has completed the DEX procedure with its DEX equipment.

DEX (Direct Exchange) is the process between the driver using the DEX handheld unit and connecting directly to the stores PC by means of a direct wiring connecting to the RCA jack and exchanging information with the store PC software directly at that point creating an invoice.
