Fonterra to implement Oracle, Capgemini TMS

Capgemini Australia has been selected by Fonterra Australia to implement TMS Now, a networked, optimal and web-based transportation management system (TMS).
TMS Now is a program developed by Capgemini and powered by Oracle that is said to help Fonterra with better visibility on the location and delivery times of goods shipped, more accurate costing of transport and improved efficiency.
Ian Raines, GM supply chain of Fonterra Brands Australia said Fonterra’s commitment to exceeding its customers’ DIFOT (delivered in-full, on-time) expectations demands an IT platform that enables consistent, repeatable results and transactional visibility of the order-to-despatch-to-customer process.
"The system developed by Capgemini and Oracle will enable improved end-to-end supply chain collaboration and real-time responses to give Fonterra a competitive advantage," Raines says. "The software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution allows us to meet high ROI hurdle rates.”
The project is a collaboration between Capgemini US LLC and Capgemini Australia, and will be delivered through a combination of a hosting framework based in the US and delivery capabilities based in Melbourne, Australia. The solution is based on Oracle Transportation Management and has been prototyped, benchmarked and pre-packaged in the Capgemini labs.
The platform is said to provide flexibility in the pricing and packaging of transportation management software, as well as the manner in which it is delivered. The model functions on a shared, hosted and connected framework that enables reduced upfront buying costs as well as ongoing operating costs. The application is hosted on HP enterprise servers.
