Implementing Transporeon´s Time Slot Management reduced waiting times for loading and unloading from an average of 3-4 hours to an average of just one hour.
Companies that are operating in today’s FMCG industries face many challenges. The supply chain is characterized by seasonality issues, uneven distribution of truck arrivals, orders on short notice, and special requirements such as returning empties to beverage producers.

With a large number of partners integrated into our transportation cloud, we are able to provide unique insight into best practices in the FMCG industries, helping you to deal with specific supply chain challenges.
