“When it comes to supply chain logistics, Oracle Transportation Management Cloud Service is the world’s leading solution. Our choice was simple because it integrates with Oracle Retail and, being a cloud solution, was fast to implement versus an on-premises application. There is also no customization required.”
—Sayed Al-Sayed, Supply Chain Applications Department Manager, Nahdi Medical Company
Nahdi Medical is a leading retail pharmacy chain that manages and operates a nation-wide network serving about 85 million consumers annually in more than 130 cities and villages across Saudi Arabia, making it one of the most prevalent and fastest growing companies in the region. As the company continues to grow their pharmacy retail and services footprint, Nahdi relies on more than 10,000 employees to keep customers returning. The company prides itself to be ‘5 minutes away from 80% of the community’.
To keep its pharmacies stocked, the company runs a fleet of more than 160 trucks from four distribution centers. Previous manual shipment planning processes such as spreadsheets and wall maps resulted in limited capability to manage shipment execution. For continued expansion the company needed to automate shipment planning, improve truck utilization, and accelerate proof of delivery evidence.
