Companies often use transport racks for their deliveries. Glass and window manufacturers use these racks to transport their goods, such as insulating glass or windows, to their customers. They arrive full and return empty. The availability of the racks in this constant cycle is of paramount importance to all parties involved.
- Racks get lost
- Racks are mishandled or not returned
- Racks remain unused in unknown places
As this can be very costly, Weha-Therm was looking for an accurate management and tracking tool for its rack fleet.
BOX ID has developed a software platform that helps manage returnable transport packaging, creating process visibility throughout the supply chain and reducing the loss of these goods. It offers an end-to-end solution that includes a specialized cloud software platform, IoT tracking devices, and efficient data, device, and user management, including features that provide valuable insights into logistics processes to support automation and process improvement.
With BOX ID, you can reduce the loss of containers and other mobile assets to near zero, on average by around 95%.
With BOX ID, you can significantly reduce lead times for returnable packaging, on average by around 20%.
With BOX ID, you need significantly fewer mobile assets for the same availability, on average around 15%.
The BOX ID System for Weha-Therm – in a nutshell
Weha-Therm uses the BOX ID solution to track racks for flat and insulating glass. The racks are equipped with cost-effective trackers that report the current location and all movements of a rack throughout Europe and transmit them via the global Sigfox 0G radio network.
The battery-powered trackers have a service life of up to seven years and can be installed as a retrofit solution on existing racks. Once the tracker is paired with the rack, the solution can be used within minutes. Tracking, however, is only one of several data sources that can be used by the BOX ID platform.
With the BOX ID Scan app, Weha-Therm adds delivery-specific information to racks to avoid rack misuse and always have deep insight into real-time logistics activities. With the easy-to-use cloud software, Weha-Therm can automate the management of its entire rack fleet, provide valuable data analytics, and gain inventory insights.
