ION’s WAM solution has been successfully deployed across three regions to optimize EMS’s manganese material flows to its global customers
PARIS – 26 October 2021: ION Commodities, a global provider of commodities trading and risk management solutions, announces the successful implementation of ION Commodities WAM Demand Planning and WAM Enterprise Planning solutions at Eramet Marketing Services (EMS).
EMS, a global mining and metallurgy group headquartered in Paris, required an enterprise solution to optimize demand and supply plans and synchronize purchasing, distribution, manufacturing, and delivery to customers. ION’s WAM solution now enables EMS to forecast sales more accurately and minimize delivery costs across its global manganese supply network, while maintaining optimal finished, intermediate, and raw material inventory positions despite market volatility.
ION’s WAM supply chain optimization solution provides a centralized planning system of record. It enables the creation of optimized plans and schedules, provides visibility into global inventories and trades, and generates predictive analytics to guide operations and maximize profitability.
“ION’s WAM solution will improve coordination of our global manganese operations related to ore extraction, transportation, and refining, along with alloy manufacturing and the distribution of finished products to our 1,500 customers worldwide,” said Grégoire Castagna, Value Chain Manager, Eramet.
“We are delighted with the successful implementation of WAM for EMS. This is the latest expansion of ION’s presence in the metals and mining sector globally, providing supply chain management solutions and helping businesses take advantage of new opportunities in changing markets,” said ION Corporates CEO Richard Grossi. “WAM will provide EMS with better visibility of its global manganese operations and performance of its supply chain, enabling it to seamlessly execute its role within Eramet as the vital link between the mining teams, the processing plants, and the customers.”
