DEUTSCHE ROCKWOOL manufactures various insulating materials from volcanic diabase rock spun into wool; these materials are used in buildings and flat-roof construction. In the high season, up to 450 trucks a day leave three plants in the German towns of Gladbeck, Flechtingen, and Neuburg an der Donau, mostly heading directly to construction sites. Around 1,300 employees work at these locations. DEUTSCHE ROCKWOOL is part of the ROCKWOOL Group, the world's largest manufacturer of insulating materials and systems made of stone wool. The group employs around 11,000 people and is represented in over 39 countries.
Real Time Visibility by Sixfold was the last missing piece of the puzzle. Now we can track the entire supply chain digitally, from pickup at the factory to unloading. All information is available in real-time without the driver having to give status messages. We can't get closer, faster, or easier to the current data.
