About: Kwik Trip is the one of the largest convenience store chains in the upper Midwest. Headquartered in La Crosse, WI it operates in excess of 400 stores in three states — Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. The first convenience store opened in 1965 in Eau Claire, WI, but the chain did not begin to sell fuel until 1970. From there, Kwik Trip focused on vertical integration creating separation from its competitors both in quality and value. Kwik Trip continues to grow through new initiatives like a strong focus on food and value priced commodities, as well as, its newest endeavor –Natural Gas and other alternate fuels. The transportation department is a subsidiary of Kwik Trip Stores, Inc., known as Convenience Transportation, LLC. The creation of Convenience Transportation was a result of the petroleum and grocery departments’ merger that took place January 1, 1999. This subsidiary includes Petroleum Transportation, Grocery Transportation and Fleet Maintenance. Convenience Transportation has approximately 350 co-workers working towards making Transportation better than the best. Transportation is made up of 1 Director, 3 Grocery Supervisors, 3 Petroleum Supervisors, 150 out based drivers in three states, 12 shuttles, 7 Petroleum dispatchers, 8 Grocery dispatchers, 29 co-workers in the fleet maintenance department and 3 Administrative Assistants. As a department we will travel over 17 million miles with the goal to make each mile a safe mile driven. With the use of the latest technology and the focus and commitment of our skilled co-workers we welcome the challenges tomorrow brings. Wisconsin Smart Fleet has given Kwik Trip the opportunity to hear an outside perspective on the management of our fleet vehicles. With this, we were offered new suggestions that will help guide not only those of us who work closely with our fleet, but also others in our company as well. The report is a great guide for future planning as we continue with the conversion of our fleet over to natural gas. Additionally, the benefit of the different events put on by Wisconsin Smart Fleet brings a sense of community to the fleets of Wisconsin, as we all work towards the common goal of reducing the petroleum consumption in our state.
