Generix Group, a global provider of collaborative SaaS solutions for the Supply Chain industrial, and retail ecosystems, announces that it has been chosen by Société Industrielle Lesaffre to manage its inbound and outbound transport ecosystem in France and abroad (Africa, South America and Asia)

Société Industrielle Lesaffre (SIL), based in Marcq-en-Baroeul, in north of France, is one of the subsidiaries of Lesaffre, a major world player in fermentation for over a century, established on all continents. Lesaffre designs, produces and provides innovative solutions for bakery, taste & food pleasure, well-being & health and biotechnology.

Société Industrielle Lesaffre (SIL) is currently carrying out a major transformation of its information system to improve the performance of its operations. In this context, the company has decided to implement a management solution for all its transport operations: Generix TMS (Transport Management System). The solution will control both the upstream, i.e. the transport of raw materials to the production site, and the downstream, i.e. the routing to the shipping ports and final customers, with an international multimodal dimension (road, sea and air transport). Moreover, SIL has chosen Generix Group's EDI solution to manage all its data exchanges with its storage partners.

Société Industrielle Lesaffre was looking for an agile and highly customizable TMS solution, available in SaaS, that would guarantee an optimal user experience. The ergonomics of Generix Group's solution, its customization possibilities and its ease of adaptation met this challenge. In addition, the solution's openness, via the availability of numerous APIs, will enable Société Industrielle Lesaffre to interface with all the third-party solutions that will be used in its transport activity.
The solution will be deployed in January 2022.

"We are delighted to welcome Société Industrielle Lesaffre to the community of new users of our TMS solution. Beyond the functional adequacy of our solutions to their needs, I am convinced that the relationship that our teams have established during the upstream phases of the project will be the key to our joint success", adds Philippe Seguin, General Manager of Generix Group in France.

Moreover, the connection with our entire ecosystem (stockists, customs, raw material suppliers, etc.) provided by Generix Group's solutions is essential to the global and efficient management required to improve our customer satisfaction"
