Now we have way more control over our transports – we know our orders are being placed with the right carriers, we’re cutting our CO2 emissions, and we’re achieving new levels of operational efficiency at our sites.

Griffith Foods

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 selects carriers on a ‘No-Touch order’ basis using Transporeon Transport Assignment 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.
