Opturion, a leading supply chain optimisation company, announces that they have been awarded a contract by Arauco.

Opturion has entered a long-term contract to build, commission and support a supply chain optimisation solution for the forestry and transport operations of Arauco based on its proven optimisation platform. The solution will provide an upgrade to the optimal transport planning and scheduling system over several time horizons. It will include long-term strategic optimisation, medium-term tactical planning, and real-time dynamic optimisation on the day of operations. The solution will integrate entirely with existing management systems to provide a secure, efficient workflow. It is being developed to include sourcing and loading forest products and transporting them to sawmills, pulp mills, and plywood manufacturing plants.

The business benefits for Arauco will include; increased equipment and labour productivity, improved schedule adherence and better management of delays and queuing. The complete system is due to go live in July 2024.

Opturion has already completed a proof-of-concept demonstrating the platform's capability and establishing a solid business case.

Arauco is a global manufacturer of forest products, serving customers with excellence in the manufacturing and distribution of wood products.
