JDA Software Group, Inc. has announced that Anheuser-Busch InBev, a global brewer and one of the world's top five consumer product companies, selected JDA Transportation Manager, JDA Transportation Modeler, JDA Transportation Planner, and JDA Agile Business Process Platform (ABPP) in the first quarter of 2012.
Based in Leuven, Belgium, Anheuser-Busch InBev manages a portfolio of well over 200 beer brands that includes global flagship brands Budweiser, Stella Artois and Beck's, fast growing multi-country brands like Leffe and Hoegaarden, and strong 'local champions' such as Bud Light, Skol, Brahma, Quilmes, Michelob, Harbin, Sedrin, Klinskoye, Sibirskaya Korona, Chernigivske, and Jupiler, among others. In addition, the company owns a 50 percent equity interest in the operating subsidiary of Grupo Modelo, Mexico's leading brewer and owner of the global Corona brand.
Successful implementations of JDA Transportation and Logistics Management solutions in its Argentina, Brazil, Russia and U.S. operations have led to greater efficiencies, improved customer service, and a reduction of the company's carbon footprint. As a result, Anheuser-Busch InBev has now chosen to roll out the solutions to its Benelux, Germany and United Kingdom operations.
"Anheuser-Busch InBev's selection of JDA's transportation and logistics management solutions is further proof that more and more leading businesses like AB InBev are recognising how creating transportation efficiencies can be a competitive differentiator in their business," said Razat Gaurav, senior vice president, Europe, Middle East, Africa, JDA Software. "By having all logistics-related activities on a common platform, the JDA solutions can help decision makers with an improved holistic view of their operating environment to improve decision making, reduce their environmental impact, improve profitability and increase service levels."
