Foodstuffs has partnered with JDA Software, Inc. to deploy JDA Transportation Management across its transportation business. 

The firm has grown to become New Zealand's biggest grocery distributor, and is one of the country's largest organisations, 100% Kiwi owned and operated.

Foodstuffs North Island Limited has a growing network of almost 350 PAK’nSAVE, New World, Four Square, Fresh Collective and Gilmours stores.

JDA Transportation Management provides a single platform to plan transportation and provide visibility across Foodstuffs’ network. Foodstuffs is already reaping benefits by having a common system and standard processes across their transportation business.

Over time, JDA will help Foodstuffs optimise costs via route consolidation, load optimization, and by adopting leading practices in logistics management.

“JDA is a valuable partner in our supply chain transformation journey,” said Gareth McFarlane, acting supply chain general manager for Foodstuffs North Island.

“With over 4,000 deliveries per week, the JDA platform will enable us to improve efficiency and utilisation of time and space to deliver on our customer promise.”

With JDA Transportation Management, Foodstuffs expects to see an increase in transit visibility for freight movements, route and load optimisation, carrier metrics and support data to aid in carrier management discussions, reduction in manual processes and improved team productivity, among other benefits.

The ability to make real-time decisions enables the teams to drive greater agility and responsiveness in meeting customer needs.

“We are very pleased to see the results delivered by JDA’s experts in technology, education, cloud and other areas together with Foodstuffs,” said Stuart Rees, vice president, sales, Australia and New Zealand, at JDA. “We look forward to being part of Foodstuffs’ supply chain journey.”
