TMX Transform Introduces Simulation Solutions for Designing and Optimizing Supply Chains and Distribution Centers
Dynamic simulation tools and services enable clients to visualize, validate, and test designs for distribution centers, warehouses, and supply chain optimization before implementation
CLEVELAND, Dec. 14, 2023 TMX Transform, the leading end-to-end supply chain consultancy serving global businesses, today introduced advanced simulation solutions designed to address the challenges of warehouse and distribution center (DC) operations in North America. TMX Transform's robust, dynamic simulation tools will enable users to visualize, validate and test designs for their complex supply chain environments to ensure success ahead of implementation.
"Today's companies need to move beyond the old way of working; using a spreadsheet to model supply chain data and movement isn't going to cut it anymore," said Jeff Bornino, President, North America, TMX Transform. "We're helping customers go further, faster by removing the guesswork from complex 'what if' scenarios. Our approach combines robust supply chain strategies with dynamic technologies to support businesses today and into the future."
Supply chains are growing in complexity, characterized by intricate dependencies, advanced warehouse automation, improved demand forecasting, and stricter service levels. As a result, businesses need a data-informed approach to DC design that reflects real operations rather than using averages to predict requirements.
Simulation, digital twins, and virtual reality (VR) tools and services provide insights into DC operations and greenfield facilities, helping companies uncover hidden opportunities and make informed strategic decisions. The TMX Transform simulation tool supports:
In the food and beverage industry, a multinational bottling company partnered with TMX Transform to revamp its supply chain network.

Nick de Klerk, Associate Director, TMX Transform, said, "North American companies that haven't yet considered automation are lagging behind. We support companies in understanding available technologies and selecting the most suitable for their needs. We take pride in being the market leader and are dedicated to helping clients predict, plan, and mitigate risks in automation projects, ensuring a predictable result."
