Jumbo Selects Quintiq To Optimise Its Complex Supply Chain
Quintiq, a Dassault Systèmes company and global leader in supply chain planning and optimisation, announces that it has been selected to further optimise Jumbo Supermarkten’s supply chain.
As the fastest-growing supermarket chain in the Netherlands, Jumbo is on a mission to provide outstanding service and products at the lowest prices, exceeding customer expectations every day.
This mission is well supported by Quintiq’s optimisation technology. The Quintiq solution will efficiently plan Jumbo’s transport and warehouse capacities.
Jumbo's supply chain involves 10 distribution centres, almost 600 stores and about 500 owned and chartered trucks. The scope covers store distribution, home deliveries, inbound operations, backhauls for all channels, and logistics between distribution centres.
With a planning solution that integrates with existing systems, Jumbo will gain full transparency of its supply chain.
“We’ve found the right technology partner to help us plan and control our supply chain,” said Karel de Jong, director of supply chain at Jumbo. “Quintiq provides us with integrated supply chain management, an approach that is demand-driven and optimised based on Jumbo’s business goals and constraints.”
Supply Chain Planning
There’s a wide range of other requirements and constraints that come with supply chain planning. The Quintiq solution is intelligent enough to take them into account, while improving Jumbo’s delivery performance, cost savings and planning flexibility.
Jumbo’s constraints include store opening times, specific timeframes for deliveries, amount of employees and shifts and different temperature compartments in vehicles.
The solution will also take into account regulatory constraints such as restrictions when transporting fresh produce, as well as legal rules in terms of truck drivers’ working hours.
“Jumbo has a large, complex supply chain that's rapidly growing. Optimised planning is key to reaching its full potential,” said Rob van Egmond, CEO at Quintiq.
“This is where Quintiq comes in. We’re able to provide real-time insights that help Jumbo make the right logistics decisions swiftly. This enables Jumbo to improve on-shelf availability and increase customer satisfaction."
