Del Monte expands deal with GT Nexus
Del Monte Foods has extended its dealings with Oakland, Calif.-based trade software company GT Nexus to include automated inventory and document management processes between Del Monte and its international supplier community, GT Nexus said Tuesday.
Del Monte already used GT Nexus' cloud-based technology to serve as its central supply chain information hub for managing international shipments.
'Our international supply chain is an important area of focus,' said Robert Lim, vice president, demand and supply planning, Del Monte Foods. 'GT Nexus has delivered strong results for our transportation services organization, so we turned to it to help enhance the company's inventory tracking and customs compliance processes. GT Nexus is now helping drive efficiency with the way we work with suppliers.'
