Miebach Consulting develops a transport optimization project for Saica Natur
The Saica Group provides sustainable solutions to its customers, offering circularity models for the manufacture of recycled paper and packaging.
The Saica Natur division, through its product portfolio (Value, Efficiency, Zero and Circular), provides environmental services focused on reducing waste and maximizing the value of waste with the greatest cost efficiency, with the ultimate goal of achieving Zero Waste. In addition, it prioritizes the introduction of recycled material as a raw material in the production process, thus implementing circular models for its customers in line with the Europe 2020 Strategy, which promotes intelligent, sustainable and inclusive growth of European economies for the next decade.
Based on its spirit of continuous improvement, the company has found itself faced with the need to increase the transparency and traceability of its extensive transport network, dedicated to managing materials of different types throughout Spain. In this context, Saica contacted Miebach Consulting for the development of a transport optimization project.
Miebach Consulting carried out a first design phase during which it defined the processes and identified the tools, and then led the training process of the platform (definition of interfaces between systems, detailed functional specification and comprehensive validation of the system). The final result is a complete digital integration project with those responsible for transport, highlighting the following measures:
Geolocation of the fleet in real time.Integration with carriers through mobile terminals, allowing visibility of services in real time and providing the necessary flexibility to re-plan services and adapt to customer needs.Implementation of the digital manifest, including a document management module for immediate access to any manifest, part or incident.Traceability of the routes to know all the milestones and to be able to improve the resource planning processes.Constant evaluation of unified service KPIs for all carriers, customers and suppliers.
The transportation optimization project developed by Miebach Consulting will allow Saica Natur greater traceability and visibility of the transportation, gaining in flexibility and increasing its level of customer service.
