• Jumbo Supermarkten

Jumbo Supermarkten is the 2nd largest supermarket chain in the Netherlands. It currently has over 580 shops, of which three are food markets. Additionally, it has 390 pick-up points for online orders and a home delivery service. The unique Jumbo formula (best service with largest assortment at lowest prices) applies to all of its shops and online store. By putting the customer at the heart of its business, the family-owned company has become one of the fastest growing supermarkets in the Netherlands. Jumbo took over Super de Boer in 2009 and C1000 in 2012 and the La Place restaurant chain in 2016.

The Quintiq solution will efficiently plan Jumbo’s transport and warehouse capacities. Jumbo’s supply chain involves 10 distribution centers, almost 600 stores and about 500 owned and chartered trucks. The scope covers the planning of store distribution, home deliveries, inbound operations, backhauls for all channels and logistics between distribution centers. With a planning solution that integrates with existing systems, Jumbo will gain full transparency of its supply chain.

“We’ve found the right technology partner to help us plan and control our supply chain,” said Karel de Jong, director of supply chain at Jumbo. “Quintiq provides us with integrated supply chain management, an approach that is demand-driven and optimized based on Jumbo’s business goals and constraints.”
