NZ Post would like to issue an advance notice to the market.
The purpose of this advance notice is to inform the supply market about our upcoming Request for Proposal (RFP) seeking suppliers of delivery network management toolsets to enable agile, data driven decision-making with the ability to forecast, plan, control and report on day-to-day interconnected postal and courier network operations allowing NZ Post to plan and execute operations efficiently, and respond with agility in an ever-changing and demanding market environment, providing a key foundational component to its overall delivery network strategy.
This RFP seeks detailed and fully costed (on a “Total Cost of Ownership” basis) proposals from suppliers to enable NZ Post to select a supplier or suppliers to provide, configure, implement, integrate, test, and support 2 key toolsets i.e. Demand & Capacity Planning (DCP) tool and Scheduling (SCH) tool.
The Demand & Capacity Planning (DCP) tool is expected to enhance demand visibility and reduce the time to make decisions by utilising historical trends and data, alongside integrated customer and demand planning enabling a higher degree of decision automation to meet optimal financial and service level outcomes. The tool will enable NZ Post to create, visualize, manage, align, and collaborate its planning data across their supply chain, encompassing demand plan creation, the supply-side response, and detailed operational and tactical-level planning
The Scheduling (SCH) tool will allow targeted allocation of resources across the NZ Post delivery network taking into account considerations such as cost, resources, efficiency, safety, and performance. It will also enable agility and accuracy in resource planning decisions across the delivery network, while enabling faster impact analysis and re-planning agility.
NZ Post intends to release the RFP to the open market via GETS before the end of July 2022 and encourages interested parties to register on GETS and to check the site for new notices being published. Please direct any questions via GETs or to the contact person listed in this notice and avoid contacting any other NZ Post personnel on this.
