Trailer allocation with the highest ROI
Superfluous investments in trailers
“We did already have a fleet management system in place before using Sensolus”, Wim, Data Management Analyst at SUEZ Recycling & recovery Belgium, explains. This system provides data about the vehicles of SUEZ Recycling & recovery Belgium and keeps track of orders.
The challenge in their ERP system is that both a truck with a trailer and a truck without a trailer are labeled as an order. In other words, this makes it impossible to distinguish based on the orders whether a trailer is used or not.
This led to the Logistics department wanting to invest in new trailers. “They would ask Procurement to make investments in new ones, but at the same time we knew the allocation of the trailers could still be improved”, Wim explains.
