Axxom Software AG will support MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG in analyzing and optimizing its European vehicle delivery network. Therefore, Axxom will model the distribution network with its solution ORion-PI®, analyze different scenarios and identify concrete optimization potential. This way, MAN wants to increase transparency in vehicle delivery and to analyze further possibilities to optimize the network – for example by the implementation of regional hubs.

Every year, several ten thousand commercial vehicles leave the European production sites of MAN Nutzfahrzeuge in Munich, Salzgitter, Steyr, Vienna, Krakow and Posen. The busses and trucks are delivered to dealers, sales offices or body manufacturers either self-deployed or by vehicle transporter. Therefore, logistics costs for delivery are mostly determined by transport costs.

To increase the transparency in vehicle delivery and to identify optimization potential, Axxom will model the European distribution network for trucks, bus chassis and bus platforms with its solution ORion-PI® Value Network Optimization in a first step. The model will contain transport relations, volume flows and freight rate logics in Europe and parts of the CIS countries.

In a second step, the actual network will be compared to alternative distribution scenarios. For instance, can MAN Nutzfahrzeuge gain cost advantages by implementing a hub at the border between Spain and France for the delivery of Portugal, Spain and South-France? Is it in generally worthwhile to switch to a hub and spoke system? And how many of such hubs are reasonable and where should they be located?

By modelling its network with ORion-PI®, MAN gains a better overview of the transport flows of its vehicles. Furthermore, analyzing different scenarios shall help the company to analyze improvement possibilities and to optimize the design of their delivery network.

Axxom Software AG is an international provider of software solutions and services for the comprehensive optimization of value-add processes. With its software ORion-PI® the technology company offers a solution for the design, simulation, planning and optimization of all business processes and systems in all fields of logistics, distribution and production. ORion-PI® is in use on five continents in more than 35 countries. Axxom Software AG was founded in April 2001. Since 2004 Axxom has a development center in Timisoara / Romania.
