"We’re proud of the speed and in particular the depth of detail of the evaluations, providing vital indicators for management of the business."

Martin Heinisch
IT Manager
Emons Spedition

Background

  • Established in 1928 in Cologne
  • 1,800 employees and 40 branches worldwide, 18 of which are in Germany
  • Every day, 130 Emons Spedition lorries are on the roads, as well as 900 sub-contractor vehicles
  • Approximately 10,000 client orders are processed daily

Challenges

  • Transport optimisation by detailed analysis of dispatch and merchandise structures required
  • Identification of links between weight, volume and timing with reference to price
  • Greater cost transparency required
  • Manual evaluations based on the Euromistral ERP system was too laborious

Solution

  • QlikView is used for finance, transport, sales, management and in IT:
  • Order monitoring: how do specific orders develop over time? What is the relationship between the number of orders and the number of clients? Are there links between turnover, weights, and costs?
  • Transport optimisation: evaluation of situation, item and pallet prices regardless of size and weight, utilisation analyses by destination location or packaging units.
  • More than 35,000 data records are analysed daily, down to dispatch item level

Benefits

  • Speed and detailed depth of evaluation
  • Identification of correlations between traffic flows or the success or failure of new products
  • Evaluations of geographical workload and lorry-capacity utilisation.
  • Analyses possible independent of the IT departments
