ORTEC And Walmart Host Webinar: Learn How Walmart Saves By Optimizing Its Supply Chain

ATLANTA, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world's leading retailer with $466 billion in 2012 sales and ORTEC, provider of innovative logistics optimization software announced they will share their story and results in a webinar on March 27, 2013, 11:00 am ET.  After implementing a route scheduling solution in 2009, ORTEC was asked in 2011 to implement a second solution to further optimize the grocery fleet domestically by optimizing pallet and loads, while building optimized delivery routes.

Solving the Puzzle: Walmart Leads the Way Integrating Loading and Routing Walmart Transportation Technology Senior Manager, Steve Simpson , will describe how Walmart redeveloped its supply chain processes by globally implementing an integrated load design and routing solution. Dr. Goos Kant, ORTEC's Chief Retail & Transportation Strategist will also discuss how 7 out of 10 ten of the world's largest retail grocers have been innovating their supply chains with the same technology and how ORTEC optimization solutions have revolutionized complex retail supply chains globally. Learn how the growth of e-commerce and increasing fuel costs are driving a desperate desire for companies to increase efficiency and productivity as well as improve customer service.  Click here to register: http://campaigns.ortec.com/walmartwebinarmarch27.

"When developing your supply chain strategy, it is critical to take a step back and consider all pieces of the puzzle," commented Corne Aantjes, ORTEC's CEO of the Americas.  "We are excited that we have been able to deliver superior results in our partnership with a visionary company like Walmart.  Our worldwide leading solutions for vehicle routing, dispatch and load building are fully deployed across the network to support Walmart's goals of doubling fleet efficiency by October 2015 against the 2005 baseline.  Imagine the impact this has on the environment we live in and the competitive prices Walmart passes on to their customers."

Walmart does more with LessWalmart's "Doing More With Less" initiative, supported by ORTEC, resulted in deploying innovative technology worldwide that is filling the trailer, improving routing and reducing empty mileage.  With approximately 7,500 drivers, the Walmart fleet drives more than 700 million miles annually.  This equates to about 30,000 times around the earth each year.
