For renowned supply chain specialist 3M, the notions of visibility and transparency have been related to every one of their business partners in an effort to smoothen communications, reduce errors, and have operations that are more efficient and sustainable.
One such implicated partner has been Gebrüder Weiss, one of Europe’s leading transport and logistics companies working over land, air and sea. With 8,000 employees working out of 180 locations across 35 countries, the need to align such a large-scale operation with 3M’s needs subsequently led to MIXMOVE and the X-Dock software.
MIXMOVE X-Dock software was deployed by Gebrüder Weiss across its hubs in both Austria and Hungary, aiding both the reconstruction and sorting processes, as well as aligning administration, rules, settings and planning configurations with 3M’s systems.
The ability to optimise both internal processes and customer-facing shipments through this improved reconstruction function means that Gebrüder Weiss has elevated both compliance and operational performance, simultaneously.
Each day, Gebrüder Weiss now receives efficient truckloads.
Goods are sorted and reconstructed each day.
Austria alone receives optimised truckloads from many consignees.
