About the Customer
Foodstuffs North Island Limited, together with its subsidiaries, engages in the retail and distribution of groceries in New Zealand. It operates approximately 700 owner-operated full-service supermarkets, retail food warehouses, grocery and small convenience stores, large and small format liquor stores, and fuel sites.
Foodstuffs North Island Limited was founded in 1922 and is based in Auckland, New Zealand.
Scope and Challenges
Ensuring that their millions of customers can get what they want is critical to Foodstuffs North Island, and equally important is the ability to transport products efficiently and economically.
To achieve this, in 2018 Foodstuffs decided to undergo a digital transformation.
Outcome and Implications
Foodstuffs have partnered with JDA Software, Inc. to deploy JDA Transportation Management across its transportation business. The solution provides a single platform to plan transportation and provide visibility across Foodstuffs’ network.
Foodstuffs immediately reaped benefits by having a common system and standard processes across their transportation business. Over time, JDA will help Foodstuffs optimize costs via route consolidation, load optimization, and by adopting leading practices in logistics management.
“JDA is a valuable partner in our supply chain transformation journey. With over 4,000 deliveries per week, the JDA platform will enable us to improve efficiency and utilization of time and space to deliver on our customer promise,” said Gareth McFarlane, acting supply chain general manager for Foodstuffs North Island.
