Blue Yonder Agrees Deal to Acquire One Network Enterprises

Blue Yonder, a leader in the field of digital supply chain transformation, looks set to acquire One Network Enterprises for a sum exceeding US$800m

In a move which looks set to shake up the supply chain software market, Blue Yonder has reached an agreement to buy One Network Enterprises for more than US$800m. 

The digital supply chain transformation leader looks set to acquire One Network for a sum of around US$839m, maintaining its impressive recent momentum.

Upon completion, Blue Yonder, which is continuing its quest to revolutionise the industry, will be well positioned to serve customers’ needs across planning, execution, commerce and networks.

“Supply chains have become more complex and, as more and more companies reduce risk by diversifying sourcing of products globally, there is an increased demand for the sharing of information and resources across the whole value chain,” comments Duncan Angove, CEO at Blue Yonder. “This, along with increased disruptions and geopolitical risks, have put the pressure on organisations to build more resilient and robust supply chains.

“Combined with One Network’s capabilities, Blue Yonder will establish itself as a leading supply chain solutions company that can offer a unified, end-to-end supply chain ecosystem that is resilient enough to withstand today’s challenges, synthesised with innovative, future-focused technologies.” 

One Network acquisition to create robust ecosystem

One Network, provider of the Digital Supply Chain Network, is known for its autonomous and resilience services and is a leading global provider of intelligent control towers. 

Combining the Digital Supply Chain Network and Blue Yonder’s supply chain capabilities is set to create an ecosystem that: 

  • Offers real-time, multi-enterprise optimisation, orchestration and collaboration both inside and outside an organisation across multiple tiers, from customers and carriers to suppliers and suppliers’ suppliers.
  • Allows customers to move from the order planning phase to the fulfilment phase instantly, eliminating the time gap that normally occurs from entering the order to beginning the physical fulfilment. Customers can also tap into a more complete and actionable data set across the multi-enterprise ecosystem by setting up alerts, benefitting from automation, and leveraging Gen AI
  • Provides real-time visibility across the supply chain, allowing customers to take immediate action via upstream and downstream collaboration.
  • Unifies disparate data silos, enabling a holistic, executive-level view into the entire supply chain – resulting in the ability to automatically optimise and execute through prescriptive, real-time decision-making technology.

A ‘resilient and collaborative supply chain’ 

As a result of Blue Yonder’s acquisition of One Network, carriers and suppliers will be in a position to leverage a range of services designed specifically for their needs.

These include: advanced shipment scheduling management; telematics tracking and predictive insights; real-time visibility to on-time delivery trends (by site, lane, carrier or distribution centre); and the ability to manage by exception. 

“Supply chains continue to be fragmented and overwhelmed with disruptions,” adds Greg Brady, Founder and Chairman at One Network. “What’s needed is a unified platform that enables multi-tier orchestration, planning and collaboration, accelerating processes with autonomous and semi-autonomous decision-making and execution across trading partners. This is the next step to creating a resilient and collaborative supply chain. 

“Blue Yonder offers the most complete portfolio in the industry, spanning from planning to execution. Coupled with our network and multi-enterprise, multi-tier platform, we’re poised to form the backbone of this new supply chain of the future.”
