Walgreens: The Right Products at the Right Place

Walgreens is one of the largest domestic retailers, as well as the largest global retailer, with a contingency of more than 8,000 retail locations and pharmaceutical distribution globally. With the large number of customers that come in and out of their stores every day, technology is really one of the key enablers that help them fulfill on their three outcomes, which is really providing the right product mix at the right time and the right place.

Sean Barbour, director of supply chain, explains how Walgreens uses Blue Yonder's transportation management for routing their private fleet for store deliveries, and deploy it out into each one of their distribution centers. Walgreen’s also uses it at a corporate level for modeling optimization and managing their inbound transportation.
