How to manage your TMS in times of crisis?
Faced with unforeseen events such as natural disasters or conflicts, companies can be confronted with major disruptions in their supply chain. In this context, an effective TMS can make all the difference.
In 2016, IDEO, a subsidiary of ID Logistics, supported its client Danone Waters in the creation of a rail hub. The group, which includes the Evian, Volvic, la Salvetat and Badoit brands, has indeed set itself the goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, in particular through increased use of rail.
The Everysens solution was selected to reinforce the performance of this mode of transport and thus support this ambition. Thanks to a complete visibility on the fleet and transports as well as reliable indicators, IDEO was able to optimize the rail for its customer Danone Waters.
Danone Waters was looking for a logistics solution that would allow it to combine three types of constraints while maintaining a balance between cost and service:
ID Logistics has chosen to meet this challenge by combining logistical and digital innovations: building a private rail hub to manage flows from the Evian plant and connecting the entire fleet of wagons to improve rail deliveries.
In 2017, transportation accounted for 42% of the Evian brand's carbon footprint. As rail emits 10 times less carbon than road, the choice of rail to limit the environmental footprint of the food group seems obvious.
However, the Evian plant is facing major logistical constraints.
