Balance Industrial Flows
Before it become windows, shower doors, verandas or windscreens, glass is treated and cut to dimensions from huge glass panels. Manufactured by Saint Gobain Glass and distributed to various customers to be transformed, these glass panels travel between the factories on easels. To optimize this supply chain, Saint Gobain called on Everysens’ logistics visibility platform.
Boost logistics performance
As a European shipper, visibility on international flows is essential. Everysens’ Operail Solution gives us not only that but also the ability to work on our fleet’s availability which leads to both operational and strategic significant gains.
Optimize a dumpster’s fleet
A profitable dumpster is one that is constantly rotating. Everysens and Covanord have identified 3 main challenges to solve : mutualization of resources, the fleet safety, and the necessity to increase rotations to produce ROI.
Implement on a European fleet
With Everysens, IDEO follows in real time Danone Waters’ deliveries throughout all Europe.
Inform to react better and quicker
The operational staff is informed of the delays and incidents on their different convoys at all times. With this up-to-date and objective information, they minimize the hazards’ consequences.
Optimize the railcars’ utilization
The overall equipment utilization rate enables IDEO to analyze the life of the railcars fleet, to identify areas for improvement and therefore maximize the railcars’ usage.
Choose an interoperable and flexible solution
The platform is rolled out swiftly, fits easily into T3M’s information system, and can readily open up to tracking of other equipments (swap bodies, semi-trailers, etc.).
Ensure a high level of quality of service
Logistics coordinators oversee the train traffic in real time in the blink of an eye on the platform: they can take action based on facts and let their clients know in the eventuality of an incident.
Analyse the performance of the railcars’ fleet
The fleet manager get performance analytics that are daily and automatically updated (immobilisation rate, utilization rate, etc.). This allows him to establish best practices.
"One of Everysens’ greatest strength is its team. The human qualities of the people we worked with contributed a lot to our collaboration’s success. Their ability to think out of the box, iterate in short cycles and deeply understand our business challenges allowed us to benefit from a relevant and mature solution, in record time."
“I had difficulties allocating easels optimally between my european factories. I tested several tracking platforms, but they were not giving me relevant information for my specific use case. With Everysens, I now have a business view on my data at all times. I can also easily detect utilization patterns.”
"Data is at the core of supply chain performance. Using the business information provided by Everysens, we are able to identify supply chain patterns where low-value is recurring. We can then move with corrective actions, in order to do better with less."
"Before, we had several methods to collect our trains data, but it was quite tedious and time-consuming. With one glance at the Everysens dashboard I can gather actionable intel on our freight rail flows : we now are aware of what happens in real-time, can investigate where it happened and why."
"At first, I was quite sceptic on the benefits of tracking my assets. However after implementing Everysens solution, I am now convinced of the benefits I can generate. For example, it allows us to pilot our international transportation plan seamlessly and give our clients a higher quality of service."
