JDA Software: powering supply chains in transportation
Who are Scania?
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.
What will Scania gain from JDA’s transport management solution?
JDA Software’s SaaS based solution aims to drive sustainable value by synchronising critical transportation processes, delivering optimal cost control and excellent service. With JDA Software's solution, Scania will be able to manage all global outbound transports from production units and body shops, in addition to managing end-to-end outbound logistics process.
“We will support Scania with critical real-time visibility to adjust truck routes and schedules to accommodate customers while ensuring those routes are sustainable. This will enable short lead times and predictable deliveries. We’re happy to support their broad scale JDA deployment and look forward to seeing the results of this effort, from a supply chain and sustainability perspective.” said Johan Reventberg, president, EMEA, JDA.

How to Attend
In a COVID-disrupted era, we know that the majority of people would rather avoid travelling for events─why take the risk, right? In response to the continued disruption, BizClik Media Group has decided that Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will offer the best of both worlds through hybrid accessibility.
That means you and your peers can attend the event in person or virtually ─ with no disadvantages for people who choose not to make the trip to the Tobacco Dock venue.
Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will be held at the Tobacco Dock in London, an industry-leading venue that is renowned for delivering world-class events. For attendees’ peace of mind, the venue is working to the government-endorsed AEV All Secure Framework, alongside mia’s AIM Secure and ‘Good to Go’ accreditation, they will ensure that we achieve a COVID-secure environment to facilitate all of your networking needs.
Our physical venue is both historic and stunning, but it has no bearing on the information that you and your peers can gain from the event. You can still absorb it all, interact with other attendees, and enjoy the conference experience on your alternative, virtual platform.
The platform will feature live feeds from all of the stages, as well as virtual networking areas. So, if you want to avoid travel, it’s not a problem! You can still get involved and enjoy the entire experience from the comfort of your own home.
