JDA Chosen by Penske

December 3, 2013

Penske Logistics has selected JDA Software Group Inc.’s Warehouse Management and Warehouse Labor Management solutions for use on a global basis.

The decision is one in a series of recent moves by Penske Logistics to further modernize and upgrade its supply chain and logistics technology capabilities. The announcement was made during JDA FocusConnect 2013, JDA’s annual conference, at the Sofitel London Heathrow Hotel in the United Kingdom.

“We’ve invested more than $20 million in a variety of technology improvements to help fortify our existing infrastructure and keep our company on the leading-edge of supply chain technology,” said Marc Althen, president, Penske Logistics. “We’re pleased to be working with JDA in a new way and we have a history with them as a valued technology partner.”

“We are delighted to help Penske Logisticsintegrate and optimize its distribution logistics operations,” said Hamish Brewer, chief executive officer, JDA Software. “The selection of JDA Warehouse Management provides Penske Logistics with a market-leading global execution platform to support complex order fulfillment requirements. Coupled with their JDA Transportation Management solutions, it enhances their position as the dominant provider in the crucial customer-facing last mile with world-class functionality that creates a competitive advantage for their blue-chip customer base.”

Penske Logistics currently operates more than 19 million square feet of warehouse space on behalf of its customers that range from leading automotive and appliance manufacturers to industrial, grocery, retail, healthcare products, and cosmetics makers.

“Having successfully piloted JDA solutions, we’re planning to begin a first quarter 2014 roll-out,” said Eric Hepburn, Vice President-Distribution Center Management. “This will commence a wider global deployment schedule over the next several years.”

“By tightly integrating JDA Warehouse Management with its previously deployed JDA Transportation solutions, Penske Logistics can execute on advanced upstream transportation plans with visibility into warehouse constraints such as dock profiles, and labor and warehouse capacity,” said David Johnston, senior vice president, supply chain, JDA Software. “This gives them the ability to create more realistic and optimal loads that can be executed by the warehouse for a strategic advantage in a highly competitive market.”
