British American Tobacco will continue to use GT Nexus for its cloud supply chain.
GT Nexus has announced that British American Tobacco has extended its commitment to the GT Nexus cloud supply chain platform.
The function of the platform is to automate and standardise commercial engagements between BAT and its network of ocean carriers.
Alan Richards, Global Procurement, Category Manager Logistics at BAT, said: "GT Nexus provides us with a greater handle on our global transportation spend and sourcing strategy."
"Technology enabled excellence in the way we run our annual ocean freight tender is critical because it encompasses a sizeable annual investment for BAT."
"We see GT Nexus as an outstanding partner in this area not only from a technology perspective, but also with regards to strong professional services and consultative insights."
"Being able to simulate spend scenarios as part of the carrier bid analysis is of great value for an optimised freight allocation to ocean carriers."
BAT has been using SAP solutions for its supply chain needs for a number of years and has operated on the GT Nexus platform since 2009.
Sean Feeney, CEO of GT Nexus, said: "BAT understands the value of strategic spend management towards services that are core drivers in the performance of their global supply chain."
"Logistics spend, managed strategically, improves the bottom line but it also directly impacts revenue performance and the customer experience overall."
"BAT’s ability to manage freight spend by connecting key parties in a cloud network enhances their ability to make better decisions and execute to meet demand."
