Nestlé has chosen Barloworld Supply Chain Software for supply chain modelling, network design and optimisation.
It will use the CAST software globally to evaluate and identify different supply chain strategies.
Barloworld reckons that businesses using CAST typically achieve a ten – 15 per cent saving on their supply chain costs through network optimisation.
Robert Vallender, head of physical logistics corporate operations, supply chain, at Nestec, Nestlé’s corporate operations in the supply chain, said: “We have a highly complex supply chain network. And it is critical that we employ a strategy which is both lean for the business and delivers for our customers. We have been impressed with the benefits of CAST and have taken the decision to implement on a global scale.”
