JDA Software announced that A.P. Moller – Maersk has selected JDA Warehouse Management as part of its digital transformation strategy and efforts to improve supply chain visibility.
Maersk, the biggest container shipping line by market share, will initially deploy cloud-based JDA Warehouse Management in Europe (Gothenburg) and the U.S. (Newark and Santa Fe) later this year.

With JDA Warehouse Management, Maersk will be able to drive improved performance and competitive edge.
