Accenture Helps Efes Rus Improve Transportation Efficiency Through New Technology Solution
MOSCOW --(Business Wire)--
Accenture (News - Alert) (NYSE:ACN) has successfully implemented a new transportation
management system at Efes Rus that is helping one of Russia's largest
brewers to improve the effectiveness of its transportation network and
more efficiently deliver its products into the hands of consumers.
The new IT system delivered by Accenture provides Efes Rus with a
streamlined and standardized transportation platform, including an
automated planning process, tracking data, and improved visibility into
transportation costs. The system also allows third party carriers to
directly input the details for individual deliveries, allowing for
efficient cost calculation and billing for each delivery agreed and
fulfilled, helping to reduce errors and free up Efes Rus employees to
focus on other tasks. The solution will also help Efes Rus to verify
compliance with its own corporate standards and legal requirements.
Accenture worked with Efes Rus to identify the right technology solution
and to implement and roll out a single system to manage every stage of
its transportation process more effectively, including communications
with third party carriers. The solution, which is an implementation of
the SAP (News - Alert)® Transportation Management application, helps Efes Rus to plan
the 700-1,000 deliveries that it makes each day.
"This program is a key component of our drive to provide a quality
experience to our commercial partners and our customers," said Hakan
Basar, Planning & Logistics Director at Efes Rus. "This collaboration
with Accenture is helping us to reduce transportation costs, reduce
errors, and continually improve our supply chain operations."
Marco Spaziani Testa, who leads Accenture's Products operating group in
Russia, said, "This new solution is crucial to Efes Rus's ability to
cost-effectively manage its transport flow while also fully
collaborating with retailers and delivering on its customers'
expectations. It will also help to provide Efes Rus with clear insights
into its transportation processes and where further improvements can be
