NexTrust User Workshop: Wiesbaden, April 2018
NexTrust hosts successful workshop at Panasonic marketing offices in Wiesbaden.
Last month attendees from all over Europe and across sectors had the chance to take part in NexTrust's first workshop, learning more about project pilots and participating in lively discussions.
Dr Oliver Philipp (Panasonic) kicked off the workshop, sharing results from their pilot which aimed to redesign the full-truck-load road network. Results from the pilot found that bundling 100,000 annual FTL movements into 60 efficient freight lanes had the potential to produce 37, 755, 574 VKM savings. Dr Philipp also shared key operational learnings such as:
Build trust and relationships from the very beginning by establishing anti-trust and confidentiality rules
Data collection, formatting and consolidation is key for identification of data matches: now the process has been streamlined it is executed much more quickly
Consider loading frequency and loading/ unloading times
Sebastian Ruckes (TX Logistik) also shared results and learnings from their pilots which aimed to optimise intermodal rail network through trusted collaboration demand and supply side. Amongst other benefits an average of 60% CO2 saviings were demonstrated, although it was found that feasibility of the pilot was contigent upon critical mass and balanced flows.
Other areas of discussion included 'the introduction of the neutral trustee as a new player in the supply chain market; building collaboration in a legally compliant way', 'Cool Running - The London Food Hub' and results of the NexTrust Exploitation study.
