Agri-Food Supply Chain Collaborative Planning Tool is a web-based software, it provides global logistics information to managers of the
agri-food supply chain. It simultaneously addresses the planning and
the optimization of a supply chain with respect to all aspects of
sustainable development (economic, environment, and society). It
schedules the flow of raw materials and products from suppliers
through production sites to distribution sites that distribute
products to end users. The Collaborative Planning Tool can help users
to select the most suitable suppliers, determine locations and stock
levels of production and distribution sites, estimate procurement
requirements for each product, and plan deliveries among different
sites. The tool can also provide collaboration plans among the
partners of an agri-food supply chain. The collaboration includes
creating hubs and optimizing routes in order to decrease logistic
costs.
