Supply Chain Digital takes a closer look at the services JDA Software will provide Scania to power its supply chain strategy.

Who are Scania? 

Scania is a leading Swedish provider of transportation solutions, particularly for buses, trucks and heavy transport applications. The company strives to shift the transport industry towards sustainability to create better mobility for businesses, society and the environment.

As part of its strategy, Scania’s transportation management processes need a revamp to be more agile, with smarter strategies, to reduce waste and resource consumption. JDA Software was selected by Scania due to the company’s commitments to driving sustainable supply chain practices.

“We selected JDA as a partner to support Scania Logistics in optimizing our flows by merging production planning and outbound processes.” said Hans Ekman, Manager Outbound development, Scania Logistics.
