Luvena SA

Full integration and two way data exchange provide more productivity

Customer

This Polish chemical company specializes in the production of fertilizers and wood impregnating agents. The Luvena factory in central Poland currently outputs 300.000 tons of products each year. The company additionally imports raw materials and fertilizers, and packages fertilizers and other mass products. Other business activities are related to the construction and rental of modern warehouse and office space. Luvena customers are primarily small and medium-sized commercial and production enterprises located in or nearby the Greater Poland administrative division, making efficient road transportation essential.

We had the opportunity to adapt the Transporeon solution to our own needs and to integrate with our ERP system, enabling two-way data exchange. Fleet operators have online access to full and up-to-date information and can manage time slots and call drivers on a regular basis, significantly improving the work of the entire team.

Challenges

  • Long waiting times when loading/unloading
  • Poor communication with drivers and carrier companies
  • Sub-optimal utilization of the warehouse logistics team
  • Complex tendering and assignment processes
  • Rising transportation costs
  • Sudden increase in number of shipments

Solution

To meet client expectations and help to achieve strategic goals, the following Transporeon Group solutions have been implemented:

  • Transporeon Tendering ensures all tender-related information is in one place. Includes a menu-guided tender generator with freight data and matrices, company-wide standard templates, prequalification of logistics service providers, multi-stage management of rounds of freight tendering, and many more functions in a single module.
  • Transporeon Transport Assignment – a full transport allocation service, from preparation of the transport specification to carrier acceptance. 
  • Transporeon Time Slot Management enables more effective traffic organization at warehouse loading bays as carriers can book timeslots using just one integrated tool.
