Challenges  

  • Transports were all booked manually; this took a lot of time and effort, and carriers never provided any formal confirmation.
  • Congestion at peak times and long waiting times were typical during loading and unloading; it was impossible to optimise loading capacity and resources.
  • It was difficult to manage local carrier performance.
  • Every carrier worked with its own system; there was no connectivity between Griffith Foods and the carrier network.
  • Lack of data about the company’s carbon footprint.
  • Ad-hoc traceability.

Solution

Today, Griffith Foods assigns transports with Transporeon No-Touch Order and has digitised its shipment loading/unloading processes using Transporeon Time Slot Management.

This has enabled a single European database for pricing and offers greater pricing transparency on a global level. Furthermore, Griffith Foods can now offer a plug-and-play solution when any new carrier joins the network. With all of these enhancements, the company is ready to face the logistics challenges of the future.

Results

  • Improved organisation

With direct pdf functionality provided by the Transporeon system, it is easier to organise all transports even with express shipments; less waiting time, better loading/unloading planning.

  • Higher-level admin

Automatic order assignment reduces the administrative workload and errors; carrier KPIs can now be evaluated; automatic reporting facilitates invoice checking.

  • Better communication

Interaction between carriers, external warehouses and co-manufacturers is centralised in a single system; faster, clearer, error-free communication positively impacts costs and customer service.

  • Streamlined processes

Easier, more efficient workflow for dispatchers using Transporeon master data including delivery templates and customer delivery specifications.
