Huhtamaki Improves Demand Management

Huhtamaki, Inc. has deployed Logility Voyager Solutions to transform the company's forecasting, inventory management and supply chain processes across North American retail, foodservice and consumer goods operations.

Huhtamaki is a global consumer and specialty packaging company with a good position in smooth and rough molded fiber products, release films, flexible packaging, foodservice paper cups and other products based on paper forming technology. In these operations they have a strong know how, technology platforms and business concepts that allow continued competitive advantage.

Huhtamaki manages a complex supply chain of several brands across multiple vertical industries each with distinct processes and requirements. In its search for a new solution, Huhtamaki focused on improving its ability to easily and systematically identify out-of-tolerance forecasts.

The company also looked to deploy advanced inventory planning tools that set time-phased safety stock levels and inventory targets, allowing them to profitably match inventory investments with projected customer demand.

“Since 1920, Huhtamaki has been a part of everyday life and our customers expect the highest quality products,” said Shawn Reckrodt, director of supply chain planning, Huhtamaki. “Logility Voyager Solutions enables us to more accurately predict demand and strategically plan inventory investments, production and product life cycles to achieve our corporate objectives for driving down supply chain costs and more profitably aligning inventory with customer demand.”
