+ 10.000 EDI messages exchanged daily

Salvesen Logística, the quality and quantity leader in the logistics and controlled temperature sector handles collecting, consolidating and storing its clients stock on its own premises. They prepare themselves the orders they receive each day and ship them on time through its own distribution network.

In order to perform these activities more effectively and efficiently, the company decided to completely integrate its supply chain with the range of solutions offered by Generix Group.

Customized Warehouse Solution (WMS)

Having a warehouse management system which is reliable, complete, communicative and quick to implement is a significant advantage for a provider of logistics services. To this end, Salvesen Logística entrusted the management of 11 of its platforms to the warehouse management system (WMS).

The operation of Salvesen Logística's logistics platforms can be adapted to the various management tools used by their clients since, using Generix's WMS, they obtain greater reliability in operations and an absolute guarantee of the integrity of the movements of goods from the warehousing covering the various logistics activities: from industrial warehouse and distribution warehouse operations to cross-docking and tight flow with ventilation operations.

Transport Solution (TMS)

Salvesen Logística, implemented the transport management system (TMS) to manage its capillary and long haul transport on all of the logistics platforms on the Iberian Peninsula.

The implementation of Generix TMS enables Salvesen to completely manage its entire transport network, both on a national and international level:

The primary objectives that drove the logistics operator to embark on this project were: taking advantage of the synergies between the different entities with a view to reducing costs incurred through transport, centralising all transport information in common system, improving information management and traceability of the transport events and having a totally integrated system (Today, Generix WMS and Generix TMS) with a natural interface between the various tools.

Likewise, the solution offered by Generix Group was rounded off by implementing the GLS tool for single management of the benchmark of the 14 platforms, at product, delivery point and shipper levels.


Electronic data interchange (EDI)

With the range of Multi-Company Collaboration products, Salvesen benefits from a unified integration system and B2B collaboration, allowing them to improve their productivity and efficiency and helping them to deploy their business processes beyond their borders, controlling their activities thanks to optimal visibility of their operations.

On the one hand, Salvesen Logistics required a standardised protocol for exchanging messages related to their transport logistics with all their clients. The best way of approaching this project was with electronic data interchange (EDI). Thanks to the Electronic Data Interchange System (EDI), they can now securely exchange any type of document (orders, shipping notices, invoices, etc.) with their network of clients, thus reaching more than 10,000 messages exchanged daily. In order to follow-up on all of the translations of messages performed, Salvesen also purchased a visualisation portal for real-time viewing of all translations or errors that might occur and enabling an immediate response time to solve them.

Regardless of the resource management system used, they can implement daily communication which is necessary to carry out their operations.
