With its focus on extracting value from waste, Renewi aims to become the leading waste-to-product company. Formed by the merger of Shanks and Van Gansewinkel, the company is committed to reducing the incineration and dumping of waste. Currently it processes approximately 14 million tons of waste annually – some of which is recycled while other waste is suitable for energy production. In total, Renewi provides a new destination for 89% of its collected waste. The organization has 65 waste transfer points in the Benelux region and, by using Transporeon solutions and only a small number of employees located across the Netherlands and Belgium, Renewi is now processing an average of 650 transport orders per day.
The Shanks-Van Gansewinkel merger caused an enormous increase in volume, by as much as 50%. With the Transporeon cloud-based logistics platform, we have had the good fortune to make a major automation move. Using both ‘best carrier’ and ‘no-touch order’ transport assignment gives us the flexibility we need.

More transport orders can be processed by almost the same number of employees, thanks to automation.
The Freight Exchange department can closely monitor individual transports and the entire transport network.
Renewi can use data to substantiate carrier choices and to demonstrate the contribution of its Freight Exchange department.
Transporeon carries out customer-specific changes on request. Future plans include integration of a new ERP system in this solution.
