Logility, Inc., a leading provider of collaborative supply chain
optimization and advanced retail planning solutions, is pleased to
announce Tillamook County Creamery Association has received the
prestigious 2019 Velocity Award (Photo).
Presented at the 2019 Velocity Conference, the award highlights a
company that has demonstrated exceptional innovation in its effort to
implement a digital supply chain initiative that significantly improves
operations and creates a platform for growth.

Tillamook, an Oregon-based dairy producer, operates in a
capital-intensive industry with multiple manufacturing and
co-manufacturing sites across the United States that serve its domestic
and international markets. The company initiated its supply chain
transformation initiative to gain end-to-end visibility and create a
platform for dynamic business growth. To succeed, the Tillamook team
established a strong foundation for digital supply chain planning and
growth: a robust planning platform with expanded visibility and
analytics to monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) and make
proactive adjustments as needed. The supply chain team developed new
processes, instituted advanced education and training for the
stakeholders and implemented Logility Voyager Solutions™ as the platform
for digital supply chain optimization.

“Tillamook has a rich and storied history of offering the highest
quality dairy products available to consumers,” said Michael Bever,
executive vice president of operations, Tillamook County Creamery
Association. “Our strategic growth plans require greater visibility and
a flexible platform for both digital and operational supply chain
success. Logility has been a key partner in support of our long-term
goals and we look forward to new opportunities in the future. We are
honored to receive this recognition for the Tillamook team’s hard work
to ensure every customer is able to enjoy our quality products.”

Tillamook manufactures in multiple locations with many distribution
points which requires precise visibility into demand, supply and
inventory. Since the start of the project, Tillamook has achieved
impressive results including a 25 point increase in forecast accuracy,
up to 99 percent fill rate and up to a 75 percent decrease in finished
goods inventory for cheeses. This enhanced level of visibility allows
Tillamook to identify new or expanded distribution opportunities and
quickly take advantage of them. In addition, the team is better able to
turn multiple sources of information into actionable insights that drive
the company’s sales and planning activities. Through the use of advanced
analytics, the supply chain team is now able to focus on higher-value
issues that align with corporate goals and deliver exceptional product
quality and service.

“Tillamook has transformed its supply chain into a platform for rapid
growth and differentiation in a highly competitive market,” said Allan
Dow, president, Logility. “We congratulate Tillamook on their digital
and operational supply chain transformation and the tangible benefits
they have achieved to help drive success, support the company’s
strategic expansion and drive greater customer service.”
