FMCG Supply Chain

With increased demand volatility and high inventory turnover, flexible, dynamic production planning is crucial for the FMCG sector.

Fast goods, fast solutions

The FMCG sector must ensure on-shelf, 24/7 availability of products across multiple distribution channels. Logistical challenges can all too quickly escalate. For planners, the pressure is on to be resilient and capable in the face of complex, rapidly evolving disruptions. 

Replan empowers you to run multiple scenarios in a matter of minutes. Utilising AI, our supply chain planning software optimises production output, allowing you to flexibly respond to constantly changing supply and demand situations. 

Replan integrates seamlessly with your core systems, adding an essential layer of intelligence to streamline and transform the planning process. From source to delivery, Replan has you covered with AI-generated group plans and rapid scenario modelling.

Key benefits to FMCG industry

Increased supply chain resilience
