The Public Distribution System in India faced adverse effects from COVID-19 due to constraints on transportation systems. The Indian Institute of Management Mumbai, formerly the National Institute of Industrial Engineering, took proactive measures to address these challenges.

In the case study, we have described all the possible scenarios NITIE considered for simulation and how they have conducted a practical approach for supply chain management to minimize the pandemic outcomes and prepare for potential future challenges.

2. Danone-Waters in Mexico improved beverage supply chain efficiency and increased production capacity

Bonafont, a leading division of Danone in Mexico, partnered with VP Consulting to address the challenge of assessing its manufacturing strategies for anticipated growth.

With anyLogistix, VP Consulting conducted a comprehensive analysis of the beverage supply chain, optimizing production lines and locations through simulation modeling.

The results were significant and impactful – a 13% increase in production capacity, a 5% reduction in costs through operational efficiency, and a projected payback period of 2 to 4 years highlighted the sustainability of the solutions. This success positioned Bonafont as a flexible and ready-made business case story in Mexico. The case underscores the value of informed decision-making and advanced tools in achieving efficiency and sustained growth in a dynamic market.

3. Optimization of distribution network design in food logistics

A detailed case study about Decisiones Logísticas’ three-phase approach to finding the best solution for distribution network optimization.

Using anyLogistix software, Decisiones Logísticas helped "Don Josué," a leading Colombian food company, plan their business development for the next 10 years. They achieved significant outcomes through systematic workflow analysis, strategic choice of new distribution centers’ locations, and effective demand management. These changes saved money, around 0.2% to 0.6%.


At anyLogistix, we're all about learning and sharing knowledge. This year, we hosted multiple events, webinars, and training sessions. We discussed our insights and practical tips on simulation modeling and supply chain design.

One such webinar was "Power Up Your M&A with Advanced Optimization and Simulation" by our partners, SimWell.

This webinar covered best practices for optimizing supply chains by mapping supply chains, aligning facility locations with customer demand, and reducing travel miles for cost savings and CO2 emission reduction.

During the demo, SimWell demonstrated practical techniques such as capturing the supply chain, explaining soft data, and running greenfield analysis (GFA) to determine the number of warehouses for comparison.

In 2024, a lot of great webinars await your participation. Check out the events page for detailed descriptions of upcoming anyLogistix trainings and sign up to join. Take advantage of the chance to join our experts and grab a handful of tips on anyLogistix.
