Maersk partners with JDA Software to accelerate digitisation
Maersk will be supported by JDA in its ambition to provide visibility throughout the supply chain in order to improve on-time performance, adapt to real-world disruptions and simplify its customer’s supply chains.
As a leading integrated container logistics company with operations in 130 countries, Maersk collaborates with customers with a simple offering of products and services, seamless customer engagement and a superior end-to-end delivery network, which takes the complexity out of global supply chains.
The shipping firm will initially roll out cloud-based JDA Warehouse Management at one of its Europe sites, Gothenburg, and the US, Newark and Santa Fe, with it set to develop the template for the global implementation across Maersk warehouse facilities later this year.
“‘Digital’ is no longer just a buzzword, today it is unlocking tremendous value for our logistics and warehouse customers in terms of simplification and better performance,” said Henning Goldman, Global Head of Warehousing and Distribution, Maersk. “JDA’s deep expertise and leading innovation are already creating competitive advantages for its customers. The addition of these exciting solutions to our portfolio is going to help Maersk continue offering our customers truly unique, end-to-end solutions.”
Maersk is set to drive improved performance and maintain a competitive edge through JDA Warehouse Management. Through leveraging JDA Connect powered by MuleSoft, Maersk can now push new capabilities to customers easily without disruption and connect to all of its services.
“Maersk is taking a leadership stance in the logistics industry, positioning themselves on a strategic path towards digital transformation,” added Johan Reventberg, President, EMEA, JDA. “Deploying JDA Warehouse Management will unlock complete, end-to-end visibility so Maersk can easily manage complex warehouse operations across myriad customer environments.”
Maersk employs approximately 76,000 people worldwide.
