Quintiq, a Dassault Systèmes company and global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), has announced a cooperative partnership with technological solutions provider AlmavivA.AlmavivA, Italy’s leading provider of transport and logistics ICT services, will support Quintiq in implementing rail optimization solutions in the country. The combined expertise and knowledge shared by both companies is expected to further expand awareness of Quintiq’s solutions for the Italian freight and passenger rail sector and strengthen customer support levels.

The solution is expected to improve throughput and buffer balancing network timetables, enhance end-to-end visibility, and improve support for all stakeholder assets, needs and requirements.
