GT Nexus recently signed an agreement with Stora Enso for a multi-enterprise cloud technology platform, helping Stora optimize its ocean logistics operations. GT Nexus will also integrate to the Stora Enso ERP system, effectively extending the reach of the software system across the entire supply chain and partner ecosystem.
"After an extensive selection process, we chose GT Nexus because they blended deep domain experience with the right technology model to help us achieve our goals," said Berit Hagerstrand Avall, vice president of Sea Transportation at Stora Enso Logistics. "To be successful, we need to connect our partners and create a single view into our global logistics operations. GT Nexus comes with a pre-connected community of industry providers who are already active on the platform supporting other large shippers. That is a significant advantage."
The platform from GT Nexus will connect Stora Enso and its global logistics partners to a single source of operational data. The platform will also provide Stora Enso better business process automation capabilities, enabling the company to leverage advanced logistics control, which will drive better customer service and on-time delivery.
The platform will support things like allocation tracking and compliance, spend analysis, visibility into key performance metrics and service level agreements.
"Large multi-national corporations are coming together in the cloud and tackling common supply chain challenges," said Greg Johnsen, chief marketing officer at GT Nexus. "We welcome Stora Enso to the community of customers that are collaborating with each other and key partners on the GT Nexus platform."
"We ship over 200,000 containers each year," added Berit Hagerstrand Avall. "The scope and complexity of our network demanded we take a highly innovative technology approach.”
“The GT Nexus cloud platform proved to be the ideal solution to meet our requirements."
