ABSTRACT
The article reports that Winn-Dixie will outsource its distribution services to C&S Wholesale Grocers. The deal will cause integration of 480 Winn-Dixie's stores into 1 common allocation platform similar to their sister stores in the Bi-Lo chain. The deal will also convert all workers at Winn-Dixie distribution facilities into C&S workers, with less changes on their wages and benefits.
