SCA (since June 2017 listed as Essity on the Stockholm Stock Exchange) develops and produces sustainable body care, hygiene and forest products, distributing these in more than 100 countries worldwide. In addition to the global brands TENA and Tork, Essity owns regional brands including Lotus and Tempo. In 2012, Essity took over the European business of its competitor Georgia-Pacific (GP). An extensive logistics inventory audit found that most GP sites in Europe were using a different logistics system to the one used by Essity.
There was no question of running two systems in parallel. The Transporeon e-logistics system strengthens the entire supply chain and gives us a clear competitive advantage.
Norbert Dummeldinger, Director of Logistics
As well as planning further ahead, the organization can do so with higher levels of certainty.
Transporeon offers its platform, software, and support in 24 different languages so requests from both shippers and carriers can be answered in their preferred languages.
This single e-logistics solution for all European locations makes “a significant contribution” to simplifying processes at the ramps.
The benefits of the Transporeon solution “quickly became apparent” and SCA appreciates increasing data transparency.
