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.
Using the railways at Danone Waters: an obvious choice... not so obvious!
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:
- market constraints: delivery times, order size, service rate
- production constraints: hazards, visibility, rigidity
- environmental constraints: CO2 emissions
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.
