Savi provides real-time status, integrity and security of chemical shipments
What they needed
GPS tracking of trucks is old news. But for many industries, accurate location information about trucks isn’t nearly enough to ensure that customer commitments and environmental requirements are being met. In the chemical industry, for example, trucks operated by independent carriers frequently carry sensitive, caustic, volatile or hazardous materials that must be monitored constantly throughout their journey for safety, cargo integrity, and security. In these cases, the risk of failure is simply too great. There are financial, environmental and possible human costs at stake. One global chemical company turned to Savi to gain access to the real-time logistics informatics that they needed to monitor and manage their business.
For accurate, continuous informatics display of asset location information, combined with asset cargo condition, integrity and security status, Savi deployed its Mobile Tracking logistics informatics platform to collect and process data collected from GPS and in real time. Savi also delivered seamless integration of the asset tracking data stream with the customer’s existing enterprise software infrastructure. Savi was able to integrate GPS information from each shipment with environmental data and security/integrity monitoring and combine this information into a single map-based real-time information display. In addition, using the Savi platform, the client was able to easily implement geofencing — defining journey corridors and anticipated journey timeframes for its shipments. Now, when a shipment is off the route, or delayed, decision-makers receive real-time alerts and can quickly take action.
Since the deployment of the Savi platform, the customer has documented improved customer service, faster identification and resolution of in-transit problems, reduced fulfillment lead time, more accurate and timely auditing of demurrage bills and elimination of human error associated with manual, ad hoc processes to capture and enter data. Because Savi provide the customer with access to real-time logistics informatics, the customer has improved their bottom line, enhanced safety and maximized customer satisfaction.
