Retailer/Supermarket Company Optimizes Operations via Holistic Approach

Challenge: Integrated optimisation of primary and secondary distribution networks for major retailers and supermarkets represents a very complex supply chain planning problem. Our client has a complex network of distribution centres, consolidation centres and suppliers which delivers a multi-temperature product range to a demanding nationwide customer base. Challenges include tight delivery constraints, complex trunking and consolidation operations, temperature constraints, thousands of vehicle movements and a dynamic ordering profile with variable demands. Before MJC ²'s software was introduced the operation was partitioned into smaller more manageable sections for planning purposes. This led to significant inefficiencies, with poor utilisation of resources and unnecessary empty running.

Solution & Results: The MJC² automated scheduling solution enabled the operation to be planned as a whole, saving several million pounds per year through more efficient use of vehicles and drivers. MJC²'s planning system optimises the operation dynamically, rescheduling movements in response to variable demands and resource availability across the network.

About the Solution Provider: MJC² focuses on scheduling and optimisation of the Supply Chain in areas such as: strategic logistics, network optimisation, real-time distribution scheduling, advanced manufacturing planning, real-time stock control, intelligent business analysis and real-time mobile workforce management.
