3PL. Gefco Dives Into Digital Transformation with Blue Yonder


European leader in automotive logistics and global integrated logistics expert, Gefco, part of the Russian Railways group, has selected Blue Yonder’s cloud-based TMS and WMS to “revolutionize its customer service and accelerate growth”. By implementing and integrating Blue Yonder’s Microsoft Azure-based TMS and WMS, Gefco will be able to transform its transportation operations by managing quickly and efficiently end-to-end business processes from modeling to planning and execution. The TMS will help Gefco unlock visibility into inbound and outbound transportation operations along with supplier and carrier collaboration tools while the WMS will increase flexibility, real-time responsiveness, on-time & in-full performance, and the ability to manage complex warehouse operations. “To accompany our digital transformation, we needed transportation and warehouse management solutions that could help us meet the needs of our customers who face complex, global logistics challenges. By selecting Blue Yonder, not only will we be able to service our existing customers to address these challenges but we will also be able to accelerate and grow our business through existing and new verticals, thereby diversifying our offerings and reaching new markets,” said Sophie Baudoux, Executive Vice President of Information Systems at Gefco.
