In this partnership, Glanbia will license LLamasoft’s strategic planning software, Supply Chain Guru®, and will contract LLamasoft’s consulting services to assist with the initial network design initiative.
John Mee, Glanbia Supply Chain Manager commented, “We selected Llamasoft for a combination of both their deep level of engagement at the tendering stage, and because their technology can both model and simulate our end-to-end supply chain operation. It was also a significant feature that Supply Chain Guru can also model and simulate inventory operations within the one single system.” In Ireland, Glanbia consumer food products reach nearly every citizen every day. The initial project will focus on leveraging Glanbia’s production and distribution infrastructure to optimize the flow of chilled goods throughout the country. Glanbia will then use Supply Chain Guru® strategic planning software for continuous improvement initiatives within Ireland and throughout their international operations.
“Glanbia has an opportunity to use their supply chain as a strategic competitive advantage,” stated LLamasoft Executive Vice President, Toby Brzoznowski. “We are excited to have been selected as Glanbia’s strategic partner, helping them model and optimize their supply chain network operations. LLamasoft is continuing our strategy of aggressively investing in both the development of our technology and our operational infrastructure throughout the world; and this new partnership with Glanbia helps confirm our position as a global leader in Supply Chain Strategic Planning.”
