Walmart: Going Beyond Company Disclosures

Walmart has rounded out its fiscal year with a strong set of numbers that show it has taken supply chain disruption, rising costs, heavy inflation, and various other problems in its stride. There is comfortable growth on both the top and bottom lines, which is extremely respectable given tough prior year comparatives. Walmart hiring is slowing down as compared to hiring in the months of April and March in 2022. Walmart posted close to 40,000 vacancies in March and 30,000 in April, which has gone below 10,000 in June 2022. Walmart Company Filings has most of the mentions related to the ESG and COVID-19 themes in 2021. ESG has more than 300 mentions in the company’s 2021 filings which indicates the rising focus on ESG-related issues.

The deployment of LLamasoft's supply chain modelling technology is expected to enable LynnCo to model, analyse, optimise, as well as simulate a client’s enterprise supply chain network in a visual and efficient manner.

LynnCo professional services and engineering vice-president Ed Gort said: “LynnCo’s clients typically have supply chain vulnerabilities around services and costs that require a consultative approach and tailor-designed solutions.

“This is where LLamasoft Supply Chain Guru modelling solutions will enable our clients to optimise their end-to-end complex supply chains.”

“LynnCo’s clients typically have supply chain vulnerabilities around services and costs that require a consultative approach and tailor-designed solutions.

Besides clients in the retail e-commerce sector, the application of LLamasoft Supply Chain Guru will also assist LynnCo to cater to manufacturers and distributors.

LynnCo noted that in the wake of the disruptions caused to the retail industry by Amazon, technology will play a key role in all spheres of the shopping experience both in-store and online.

As a result, the company feels that retailers should adopt an improved distribution network by switching from a 'replenish to store' model to a ’direct to consumer' model.

LLamasoft global sales and marketing senior vice-president Bob McFarland said: “We are confident that LynnCo’s more complex clients will benefit greatly from LLamasoft’s technology to support network optimisation, inventory optimisation, transportation optimisation, enterprise simulation and more.”
