Abstract

Truck turn times in FMCG supply chain are unreliable. The Dutch ‘Speed Docking’ project in 2011 and 2012 gave clear evidence to this. This leads to additional trucks and drivers in transport networks. Improving reliability of truck turn time will lead to less trucks and drivers in the transport network and improved productivity at distribution centres.
The research is focused on Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) transport networks. A reduction of transport is high on the agenda’s of FMCG companies. The objectives in the FMCG industry are: less CO2, increased reliability, secure transport capacity and ultimately a better service to consumers.
The FMCG industry, together with logistics service providers, can realise improvements with the use of mobile communication, on board computers, connected navigation and intelligent transport systems, process mining based on big data to benefit better tactical and operational planning, geo-fencing, agent based dynamic planning and time slot allocation and the use of community platforms were data is shared with all chain partners in FMCG.
