JDA will create a Cloud-based, end-to-end parts logistics process to provide Sandvik with improved access to mines, and sites for construction and rock excavation.

Under the contract, Cloud-based solutions will be used from JDA Intelligent Fulfillment, including management of transportation, warehouses and labour.

In addition, Sandvik is expected to leverage JDA Consulting Services and be deployed in the JDA Cloud.

Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology logistics transformation manager Juha Virtanen said: “Parts logistics is a highly critical aspect of our business in getting spare parts to mining and construction sites quickly.

“Beyond needing to streamline and gain visibility into logistics flow, we needed to ensure we could deliver parts at the right time.

“We’ll create a complete platform for Sandvik that will not only optimise their business, but yield increased visibility and traceability, as well as drive down losses in warehousing.”
