Global Food Company Sizzles with Digital Supply Chain Visibility
As one of the world’s largest pork producers operating in five countries, supply chain complexity was the organisation’s biggest challenge. In the US alone, it manages six distribution centres and exports products to 40 countries.
Across its supply chain, there were differences in business practices and IT systems. This led to unnecessary complexities and inefficiencies that made it hard for the organisation to keep growing. The time had come for the business to redesign and optimise its supply chain, and it needed a digital supply chain platform to support with that.
The AI-based Logility platform helped the company rethink and remodel its supply chain network. By introducing a single solution for integrated business planning, it reduced complexity within the supply chain, while increasing visibility and accountability.
Logility allows the company to automate and accelerate planning by recommending optimal locations for manufacturing and distribution, as well as determining the best place to produce its SKUs.
With Logility, everyone involved in the supply chain has visibility and everyone has access to information they can trust.
Since the introduction of the Logility digital supply chain platform, the organisation is more responsive to its customers. It’s anticipated this will help reduce supply chain and transportation costs by $40 million.
The platform has not only transformed the company’s manufacturing and supply chain network, but it’s transformed its entire approach to supply chain management and dramatically improved the sales and operations planning (S&OP) process.
Stripping complexity out of the supply chain and increasing visibility is helping support the company’s continued global growth.
