Operating 10 DCs, almost 600 stores and 500 owned and chartered trucks
Quintiq has been selected to further optimise Jumbo Supermarkten’s supply chain in The Netherlands. The Quintiq solution will efficiently plan Jumbo’s transport and warehouse capacities. Jumbo’s supply chain involves 10 distribution centres, almost 600 stores and about 500 owned and chartered trucks. The scope covers the planning of store distribution, home deliveries, inbound operations, backhauls for all channels and logistics between distribution centres. With a planning solution that integrates with existing systems, Jumbo will gain full transparency of its supply chain.
There’s a wide range of other requirements and constraints that comes with supply chain planning. The Quintiq solution is intelligent enough to take them into account while improving Jumbo’s delivery performance, cost savings and planning flexibility.
Jumbo’s constraints include store opening times, specific timeframes for deliveries, amount of employees and shifts and different temperature compartments in vehicles. The solution will also take into account regulatory constraints such as restrictions when transporting fresh produce, as well as legal rules in terms of truck drivers’ working hours. With Quintiq’s optimised planning, Jumbo will be able to achieve more sustainable operations through reducing their carbon footprint.
The solution will be used for Jumbo’s logistics planning on tactical, operational and day-of-execution levels. Using scenario-based tactical planning, Jumbo will be able to evaluate all possible options against specific KPIs. For operational planning, Quintiq takes into account the latest order volume and resource capacity for optimised plans up to one week ahead. On the day of execution, the solution ensures smooth-running movements based on confirmed orders and supports planners in managing disruptions effectively. The latter is enabled by real-time monitoring of execution, which provides visibility of both resources and charter resources in terms of trip progress, traffic and disruptions.
Jumbo currently has over 580 shops, of which three are food markets. Additionally, the supermarket chain has 390 pick-up points for online orders and a home delivery service. After taking over Super de Boer in 2009 and C1000 in 2012, Jumbo became the second largest grocery chain in the country. Additionally, Jumbo took over the La Place restaurant chain in 2016.
