Tracking and transparency in all communication processes

CUSTOMER

Verallia is the world's third largest producer of glass packaging for food. It offers innovative, customised and sustainable solutions to over 10,000 customers worldwide. In 2018, the company produced nearly 16 billion glass bottles and jars for still and sparkling wine, spirits, food, beer and soft drink markets, and Verallia's turnover exceeded 2.4 billion euros. In Italy it operates six plants in Dego (SV), Carcare (SV), Gazzo Veronese (VR), Lonigo (VI), Pescia (PT) and Villa Poma (MN). Verallia has been using the Transporeon platform since October 2015 in Italy, France and Germany. Across the company, Verallia allocates around 400 transports per day via the Transporeon platform, with around 250 booked slots for loading operations.

We chose Transporeon to optimise warehouse activities and achieve transparency and traceability in all communication processes with our carriers.

CHALLENGES

  • Achieve an automated transport allocation process that adheres to carrier contracts and enables Verallia to monitor carrier quotas and prices
  • Optimise the planning of loading activities
  • Reduce truck waiting times
  • Gain oversight of warehouse activities managed by third-party providers
  • Efficiently manage and monitor extra charges requested by carriers (e.g. for long waiting times, etc.)

  • Transport Assignment with Best Carrier – this allows the company to select on a daily basis the carrier with the most suitable quality-price ratio
  • Time Slot Management to manage dock scheduling
  • Transport Visibility for shipment tracking
