Blue Yonder announced plans to acquire One Network Enterprises for approximately $839 million, subject to adjustments.

“Supply chains have become more complex, and as more and more companies reduce risk by diversifying sourcing of products globally, there is an increased demand for the sharing of information and resources across the whole value chain. This, along with increased disruptions and geopolitical risks, have put the pressure on organizations to build more resilient and robust supply chains,” says Duncan Angove, CEO, Blue Yonder. “Combined with One Network’s capabilities, Blue Yonder will establish itself as a leading supply chain solutions company that can offer a unified, end-to-end supply chain ecosystem that is resilient enough to withstand today’s challenges, and synthesized with innovative, future-focused technologies.”

“Supply chains continue to be fragmented and overwhelmed with disruptions. What’s needed is a unified platform that enables multi-tier orchestration, planning and collaboration that accelerates processes with autonomous and semi-autonomous decision-making and execution across trading partners. This is the next step to creating a resilient and collaborative supply chain,” says Greg Brady, chairman and founder, One Network. “Blue Yonder offers the most complete portfolio in the industry, spanning from planning to execution. Coupled with our network and multi-enterprise, multi-tier platform, we’re poised to form a backbone of this new supply chain of the future.”

Key takeaways:

  • The combination of One Network’s Digital Supply Chain Network and Blue Yonder’s supply chain capabilities create an ecosystem that offers real-time, multi-enterprise optimization, orchestration and collaboration both inside and outside an organization; allows customers to move from the order planning phase to the fulfillment phase instantly; provides real-time visibility across the supply chain; and unifies disparate data silos, enabling a holistic, executive-level view into the entire supply chain.
  • In addition, carriers and suppliers will be able to leverage a range of services designed specifically for their needs, including advanced shipment scheduling management, telematics tracking and predictive insights, real-time visibility to on-time delivery trends (by site, lane, carrier, distribution center), and the ability to manage by exception.
  • By tapping into One Network’s platform and multi-party network, Blue Yonder’s customers will benefit from an ecosystem that accelerates end-to-end decision-making; offers real-time insights and predictions; shares data seamlessly across the entire multi-tier supply chain; improves supplier and carrier collaboration processes; and enables the journey to autonomous supply chain management through Smart Prescriptions, adaptive flows, and interactive visualizations, powered by proprietary AI technology.
