It also has an extensive commercial network, with presence in 56 countries, 18 service centers, 26 warehouses, and 35 commercial offices. Since its constitution, it has been carrying out a continuous program of investments, developing its own technological innovations that, in some cases, have represented a true milestone in the technology of stainless steel manufacturing. Group turnover was €5,011 million and melted production was 2.44 million tons in 2018. ACERINOX has achieved its best results in the last 10 years.
We couldn't cope with the increased volumes of cargo and transportation. The team was 100% occupied only with transport allocation and load consolidation for the Algeciras plant, and it was impossible to manage the other plants. With Transporeon we have automated some of the processes, and this allows us to take on more volume.”

Globalize everything in one tool
ACERINOX opted for a Transporeon solution in order to manage increased cargo volumes at the Algeciras plant and to implement the same solution at its other plants. This decision provided the transparency required by ACERINOX standards, particularly being able to follow up transports and connect with the factories in Europe that receive its products. The company uses digital tools for transport allocation, inbound radar, time slot management, automatic pricing, reporting, and more.
ACERINOX factories receive all information in real time; they know which goods will arrive and at what time
With automated processes, the same personnel can manage higher cargo volumes.
Visibility & transparency
Clear and complete information on all transport assignment processes.
Personnel dedicated to these tasks can optimize their time thanks to process automation and easy access to prices, reports, and more…all in the same tool.
