Brewing giant picks 3M software system

Brewer InBev has chosen the HighJump Supply Chain Advantage suite from 3M for its warehouse operations.

The first implementation of the HighJump solutions will be in the UK later this year.

InBev will use the systems as part of a comprehensive IT strategy, designed to link disparate production facilities, strengthen process execution and improve management visibility with consolidated, real-time information.

InBev’s portfolio includes Stella Artois, Beck’s, Leffe and Brahma.

“We wanted to work with a multi-national company that not only understands the complexity of our supply chain operations, but also knows first-hand the importance of standardising the underlying technologies to effectively support growth,” said Koen Goossens, logistics director Western Europe.

Hugh Murphy UK business manager of 3M’s Supply Chain Solutions Division said: “The HighJump system will enable InBev to strengthen its supply-chain visibility, enhance operational efficiency, heighten productivity and boost customer service levels.”
