New agreement to drive global supply chain modeling at Nestlé

12 January 2010 - Nestlé has selected Barloworld Supply Chain Software for supply chain modelling, network design and optimisation.

Barloworld Supply Chain Software will implement its CAST software on a global scale - a powerful, desktop based application to evaluate and identify different supply chain strategies, leading to cost savings and service improvements. Businesses using CAST typically achieve a 10-15% saving on their supply chain costs through the application of network optimisation.

In addition, Barloworld Supply Chain Software will be providing ongoing support and training for the application.

Robert Vallender, Head of Physical Logistics Corporate Operations, Supply Chain, at Nestec(1) comments, “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.”

Ewan French, Chief Operating Officer at Barloworld Supply Chain Software, adds, “Barloworld has been working with Nestlé in the Philippines since July 2005, where we implemented CAST to help optimise supply chain operations in Asia. It was this success that was the basis for us working with Nestlé on a global scale. CAST is now the network modelling software of choice to be used globally across all product streams.”
