Quintiq Planning Software Selected by Van den Bosch

Quintiq Planning Software Selected by Van den Bosch
Van den Bosch Transporten has selected the Quintiq planning and optimization software platform to optimize its logistics operations.

Van den Bosch transports liquid and dry bulk for food and non-food industries. It offers its customers intermodal cargo transport, and operates worldwide with a fleet of 350 trucks, 1,000 trailers and chassis, and over 4,000 containers.

The company says its planning puzzle is one of the most complex in the intermodal bulk container business. Planners need to manage product contamination, meet equipment cleaning requirements, match requirements to equipment, balance resource stock and decide on optimal modes of transport. The company previously relied on a transport management system (TMS) as well as several other systems to address requests and calculate routes. It needed an integrated solution that could take into account the complexities of its business to optimize operations, improve delivery performance and increase customer satisfaction levels.

The Quintiq planning and optimization software platform was implemented at Van den Bosch Transporten’s liquid chemical road unit, and is set to expand to other business units worldwide. The single, integrated platform replaces Van den Bosch Transporten’s multiple planning systems and the company says it covers every planning horizon, offering the company end-to-end transparency in operations and visualization of the impact of decisions on business goals. “It incorporates all rules specific to the company so that the right equipment can be assigned to the right customer orders. It ensures optimal allocation of orders to containers and containers to trucks and trailers, and defines optimal paths for load units in the intermodal networks. Freed from manual planning, Van den Bosch Transporten planners can now focus on higher-value activities,” said a spokesperson.
