Background

In 2017, Landport Batteries chose Outperform Planning as their supply chain solution. Landport Batteries focuses on long-term partnerships with manufacturers, importers, wholesalers, wholesale organizations, and chain stores, providing them with an extensive range of batteries and battery chargers for various motorcycle, automotive, and industrial applications. They have more than a quarter of a century of expertise in import and distribution of batteries, selling 1.5 million batteries annually.

The challenges

Landport Batteries has a large number of SKUs and customers, leading to an extraordinary amount of combinations. On top of that, they have to make hundreds of purchase decisions every week.
