In an effort to give global customers an end-to-end view of all variables in the supply chain, TNT Logistics, an Amsterdam-based supply chain services provider, announced it will use Optiant's PowerChain suite software. TNT, which services the industrial manufacturing, automotive, consumer goods and other markets, will use the software to assist customers in reducing inventory costs by providing guidance in making early stage decisions on raw material sources, production and storage.
"Today's supply chains are as much about right-sizing inventory levels and the logical positioning of products throughout the network, as they are about the ability to move materials effectively between multiple trading partners," said Keith Goldsmith, vice president of technology for TNT Logistics. "Optiant's PowerChain suite enhances our ability to help customers further reduce their costs by modeling product flows from raw material states all the way through the final points of consumption. This will help our customers eliminate waste from their operations, a major leap forward in the quest for operational excellence."
