Nestle takes logistics operations online

Must Read

j_urban.jpgGT Nexus Urban has been selected by Nestlé to provide a central online hub to streamline ocean freight procurement negotiation and contracting processes.

“This is a major win for our operations,” said John Urban, President of GT Nexus Urban.
“Nestlé is one of several large enterprises that are using the GT Nexus Portal to improve global supply chain performance.”


The existing network data connections on GT Nexus will provide a capability to collect and normalize electronic invoices and shipment status messages directly from the carriers and audit performance against the contracts. Nestlé will add this capability in the next phase of their roll out. Other capabilities that can be quickly activated on the portal include logistics visibility, standardized data feeds into other systems, and performance analytics.

The capabilities provided by GT Nexus give Nestlé the ability to easily compare multiple bids in a variety of different ways and then make allocation decisions based on the ideal service-price combinations. The system enforces standardization into the negotiation interactions, which frees users to focus on value-added tasks related to the contracting process.

Nestle has operations in 87 countries on 5 continents. The transportation network that supports the company’s global operations moves more than 300 000 containers per year and requires services from most of the world’s ocean carriers.
