European retailers select GT Nexus for transportation control

Oakland, Calif. - The Society for Research of Synergies (SRS) and its company members will place their supply network onto the GT Nexus platform to optimize global transportation costs representing $247.7 million per year. SRS is a global synergy organization representing the interests of 20 European retailer groups, including Groupe Auchan, Groupe ADEO, Pimkie, Orsay, Kiabi, Happychic, H.T.M., Mobivia, Ephigea and Tapis Saint Maclou.

SRS will migrate from an outdated home grown transportation sourcing solution to an automated and integrated environment that provides visibility into a single set of transportation data. Collaborative processes using GT Nexus enable SRS and its trading partners to seamlessly submit orders, monitor carrier responses, view analytics and optimize spend. Contract rates, service levels, carrier awards and amendments are managed in a shared electronic network to deliver visibility into transportation execution data. SRS will also be able to conduct its transportation negotiations based on real and actual data to further improve cost savings.

“We operate SRS as a centralized organization designed to optimize processes and leverage synergies for transport activities among more than 30 affiliates,” said Olivier Richard, transport manager of SRS. “GT Nexus enables us to consolidate complex demands from numerous organizations and handle multi-brand transportation forecasts, while delivering and servicing various product categories. Our vision is multi-modal transport visibility across all brands and product lines that will allow us to optimize our transport spend while operating a smarter, more agile supply network.”
