Barloworld SCS demonstrates how to optimise the supply chain at Multimodal 2012

Visitors to Multimodal 2012 will discover the latest supply chain optimisation solutions at stand 232, where Barloworld Supply Chain Software consultants will offer advice and showcase the company's latest software.

Global supply chain planning company, Barloworld Supply Chain Software (SCS) is exhibiting its range of supply chain modelling and inventory optimising software solutions at Multimodal 2012 at Birmingham's NEC from 1-3 May.

"Multimodal provides the opportunity to meet with existing and potential customers and to discuss current supply chain requirements" says Kevin Boake, Managing Director of Barloworld SCS. "Specialists will be on the stand to offer advice about supply chain modelling, inventory optimisation strategy, demand planning and various topics surrounding supply chain optimisation."

Multimodal 2012 will also see Barloworld SCS launch the latest version of CINO a multi-echelon inventory strategy optimisation application that enables a step change in the way inventory is managed across the network.

"In the current economic climate many businesses face the challenge of how to deliver the level of service that customers require in order to compete effectively" says Nick Newby-Ricci, Business Development Manager for Barloworld SCS. "Traditional approaches to inventory management are not capable of calculating inventory policies that enable the service level customers demand with an acceptable level of working capital." 

Multi-echelon inventory strategy optimisation applications such as Barloworld SCS's CINO software helps businesses to achieve greater transparency and the ability to model end to end inventory flows, so they are able to reduce working capital and consistently achieve targeted service performance levels.

Barloworld SCS offers a suite of software solutions to help companies enhance their entire supply chains, through the application of warehouse location planning, service lead-time analysis, stock profiling and classification, inventory forecasting, demand planning and excess stock management.

Barloworld SCS's software range includes the CAST Aurora Supply Chain Strategy tool and Optimiza Inventory Planner, which helps drive down inventory and improve service levels.

Multimodal is the UK and Ireland's leading freight transport and logistics exhibition.  Now entering its fifth year, the event has evolved into an annual one stop shop for shippers who need to find ways of optimising their supply chain and transportation flows and suppliers of transportation services. Attending Multimodal provides the opportunity to compare suppliers, strategies and modes and network with cargo owners.

Barloworld Supply Chain Software is a leading global supply chain planning company, providing expertise, tools and solutions to help companies optimise their supply chain networks, inventory and transportation.
