17 May 2007

i2 Technologies, Inc. today announced that HeidelbergCement has selected i2 Supply Chain Strategist to optimize its global logistics network. The initial implementation will be in eastern European countries, with plans for an eventual broader rollout.

HeidelbergCement has selected i2 Supply Chain Strategist to drive more efficiency through its production and distribution network. The solution is designed to support key strategic decisions at each stage of the supply chain from raw materials procurement to finished goods distribution. It can provide insight into the tradeoffs between alternative strategies regarding site location, facility missions, product mix, transportation strategies and inventory deployment strategies.

" HeidelbergCement has a key focus on comprehensive efficiency and sustainable profitability while putting emphasis on customers and profit-oriented growth. After testing i2 Supply Chain Strategist for several months we learned first-hand its ability to represent and optimise our complex supply chain, leading us to believe that i2 can help us achieve our goals," said Thomas Kern, director Group Strategy & Development, HeidelbergCement.
