“We have been using INFORM’s transport optimization software for over 25 years in our aggregates business,” says Kevin Perrault, head of supply chain projects at Lafarge France. “We pride ourselves in delivering the best possible service to our customers and upgrading our operations to the latest version is a key element to help us achieve our goals and to remain competitive in the industry.”
“The release also comes with a new interface technology, which makes it easier to embed our system into a wider corporate supply chain environment and to connect it to other third-party systems,” explains Dr. Flachskampf, head of road transport at INFORM’s logistics division. “We have also taken this opportunity to review all key optimization parameters of our implementation at Lafarge France Aggregates, which will lead to further savings down the road.”
- The aggregates business of Lafarge France includes 160 locations and operates a fleet of 700-900 trucks. INFORM’s solution is powered by algorithms that analyze a virtually endless number of scheduling decisions in real-time and identify those that are ideal for minimizing costs and maximizing service level and on-time performance.
- The new version (V10) features an overhauled user interface (UI) and is powered by the latest aggregates optimizer.
