CEAT Tyres, one of India’s leading tire manufacturers, has digitally transformed its supply chain with Blue Yonder, the world’s leading, end-to-end, digital supply chain platform provider. The company implemented Blue Yonder’s Luminate Planning solutions portfolio. Blue Yonder partner E&Y was the implementation partner for this project.

The Luminate Planning gives CEAT accurate inventory visibility, associated data transparency, inventory optimization and performance ensuring that the right products get to the right places at the right times. Luminate Planning will be CEAT’s foundation for developing an end-to-end supply chain and fulfillment backbone.
