May 2017 - NexTrust Newsletter
The NexTrust project is now in month 25 of 43. Many of the pilots are moving into the operation and evaluation phases. In this Newsletter read more about some of the exciting developments that have being happening within the project, in particular pilot 1.1 which successfully ran a multi supplier - multi retailer platform for biscuit suppliers and retailers in Belgium.
Four major Belgian biscuits suppliers consolidate their deliveries to four Belgian retail stores to reduce truck movements and to increase the truck’s fill rate.The collaboration was guided by trustees and specialised lawyers to ensure that it complies with EU competition law. This platform is groundbreaking as it has the potential to include many retailers and suppliers; and the more companies that bundle their freight volumes, the higher the gains in sustainability and in business.
