Incomplete administration, getting back and forth with your customer about missing carts or pallets. Things that take a lot of time. Time you can spend better. Read here how you can improve the processes in your supply chain.
Challenges in the supply chain
Logistics processes in the supply chain must be optimized. In floriculture, flowers leave the auction with the supplier and go to the customer, where they are sold to the consumer. Packaging such as barrels and stacking carts are used to transport the flowers. A process that involves a lot of administration, because all packaging must be registered. A lot of communication goes back and forth from the flower auctioneer to the customer. Questions such as “Why am I still missing 10 barrels?” and “Where are my stacking carts?” are discussed. Customer A is sure that he has sent the 10 barrels, because it is in his Excel file and customer B has just returned the stacking carts with the supplier. Then it’s your word against his. These and other challenges are easily solved by using an online platform with one truth. By registering the load carriers online, you know exactly how many carts and crates are at each location. Using the returnable packaging platform, you can easily send a balance reconciliation to relations and the quantities are immediately aligned online.
