Penske upgrades supply chain, logistics systems

Penske Logistics has selected the JDA Warehouse Management and JDA Warehouse Labor Management systems 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.
“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 of 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 Logistics integrate and optimize its distribution logistics operations,” said Hamish Brewer, chief executive officer of JDA Software. “The selection of JDA Warehouse Management provides Penske Logistics with a market-leading global execution platform to support complex order fulfillment requirements.“
Penske Logistics operates more than 19 million square feet of warehouse space for its customers that range from 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.
