Problem: Movianto’s active refrigerated transport network spans the Iberian Peninsula and is said to be the only certified active refrigerated transport network dedicated to the pharmaceutical sector. To comply with strict health and safety regulations, products delivered by Movianto require reliable temperature control during transportation. In the pharmaceutical industry, traceability plays an important role in ensuring quality products and services.
Solution: The logistics service provider has implemented Zetes’ TotalProof solution to ensure full traceability during the transportation of temperature-sensitive products and to optimise customer service.
After analysing Movianto’s needs and studying its operations, Zetes customised its TotalProof mobility solution based on a requirement for proof of pick-up and delivery. The solution allows Movianto to manage and optimise the loading of trucks, deliveries, transfer of packages from one distribution centre to another, and to manage the fleet of vehicles by organising the routes taken by their mobile workers. Carriers use mobile devices to communicate in real time via the Movianto transport management system, thus ensuring accurate data input and maintaining real-time visibility of operations.
José: Revilla, operations manager at Movianto, said: “We are now able to optimise other related business processes, and we have made the delivery service profitable by reducing its expenses.”
