Grupo Herdez Transforms Supply Chain Planning
Global prepared foods company Grupo Herdez manages 15 plants, 24 distribution centres and 486 stores. Its customers span major retail chains through to local neighbourhood grocery stores.
The complexity of its supply chain demanded improved planning efficiency to ensure the organisation could retain its position as a market leader. Grupo Herdez needed to reduce the complexity in its supply chain to deliver the right inventory and maintain high service levels, while also meeting strategic financial goals.
Grupo Herdez implemented the digital platform Logility to gain efficiencies and remove complexity from its supply chain, as part of an integrated business planning approach.
The platform combines demand, inventory and supply optimisation to improve the organisation’s operational and financial performance.
By automating planning and unlocking business intelligence, the platform has enabled faster planning and better decision making – it has reduced planning days by 60%.
In removing complexity from its supply chain, the organisation is also benefitting from improved customer service levels.
With Logility, Grupo Herdez now has a scalable, future-proof sales and operations planning process that will enable it to preserve its position as the market leader.
