JDA®Software Group, Inc., today announced that Grup Bon Preu, a leading grocery retailer in Cataluña, Spain, selected the JDA® Transportation Manager and JDA® Transportation Planner solutions from the JDA Distribution-Centric Supply Chain Suite to enable continued process efficiencies and improve supermarket and hypermarket customer service. Grup Bon Preu expects the JDA solutions to help them reduce their transportation costs by increasing truck load utilization and optimizing routings with respect to logistics constraints while balancing warehouse dock utilization.
Based in Cataluña, Spain, Grup Bon Preu runs 117 supermarkets, 41 hypermarkets and 27 petrol stations through their three banners: Bonpreu supermarkets, Esclat hypermarkets and EsclatOil petrol stations, supported by more than 4,000 associates.
Having successfully implemented several JDA Solutions to optimize inventory, increase service levels, improve demand forecast accuracy to drive optimized distribution planning and generate more accurate replenishment orders, improving Grup Bon Preu’s transportation processes was the logical next step in their supply chain transformation. The JDA transportation and logistics management solutions will now help Grup Bon Preu reduce their transportation costs through more efficient route planning and improved asset utilization.
“Bon Preu has placed great importance on strategic thinking and constant innovation that can bring value to our customers in a sustainable way. Supply chain process innovation has always been a key element for us in balancing excellence in customer service and business efficiency,” said Joan Sabartés, chief operation officer, Grup Bon Preu. “We have a very successful history with JDA, whose solutions for pricing, advanced warehouse management and advanced store replenishment have been in use for some years now at our company. When we decided to rethink and innovate our transportation processes, adopting the JDA Transportation Management solutions was a natural step for us. We consider JDA a strategic partner and look forward to having them support our supply chain transformation as we work to gain a more holistic view of our business from warehouse to transportation to store.”
Grup Bon Preu will deploy the JDA Transportation Management solution to help them implement transportation plans driven by consumer demand and replenishment policies, control costs, streamline productivity and leverage their transportation efficiencies to support profitable growth in keeping with their corporate goals and values of delighting their customers through constant innovation and maintaining market leadership in Cataluña.
“Grup Bon Preu’s selection of JDA’s transportation and logistics management solutions is further proof that more and more leading retailers like Grup Bon Preu are recognizing how creating transportation efficiencies as part of their overall supply chain transformation can be a competitive differentiator,” said Mark Morgan, regional vice president, EMEA, JDA Software.
