Nedcargo

Wasteless supply chain


Background

Nedcargo (formerly known as Van Uden) provides sustainable solutions in a changing logistical world. Three specialised divisions work closely together, committed to create the most sustainable and cost efficient supply chain for customers in the food, beverage and retail markets:

  • Nedcargo Logistics warehousing and distribution by road in the Benelux for food and non-food products, wines and beverages
  • Nedcargo Forwarding import and export for food, beverage and retail products, including all related activities like customs activities and temporary storage
  • Nedcargo Multimodal various options for container transport in the Benelux countries, using inland shipping and road transport

Solutions

Quintiq and Van Uden worked together to develop a real-time multi-user planning system based on the Quintiq supply chain planning and optimization platform. The system calculates the effectiveness and consequences of every planning action, then gives each planner a complete overview of all relevant processes.

Everyone involved in the planning process is informed of those consequences in real time. The costs, advantages, distances and load distribution per planning modification are visible to each planner. A central planning system optimizes and adjusts the handling of cargo.

The system empowers Van Uden to achieve its primary objective of using its Dutch warehouses as effectively as possible.


One of the deciding factors that led us to choose Quintiq was the fact that Quintiqs technology is well able to handle our multi-warehousing situation. In addition, it's the flexibility of the software that enables us to develop a solution that meets all our specific requirements.
