  • Taking logistics worries off your hands

    Taking logistics worries off your hands

    As an agri, food or contstruction business, you need the assurance that your logistics process is running optimally. To know that raw materials will be delivered at just the right time, and also that you can respond quickly in an emergency situation. For this reason, taking care of logistics is our top priority at AB Texel. Thanks to our company’s size – we have 2, 800 employees, 1,700 trucks, 2,800 trailers – we’re able to provide optimal service to all our clients, from the smallest to the very biggest. We’re flexible, and thanks to our dense network we’re able to scale up and down quickly and easily at any time.

    We do this with our trademark commitment, and sensitivity to local business practices. We have truck stop locations throughout the country, we believe in direct communication, and we’re flexible when it comes to finding solutions. Our drivers show this same commitment. Most of them have a background in the agri or food sector: they know their way around a farm and are familiar with the ins and outs of the food sector. They are qualified and professional, and if something unexpected happens they’re able to think along with you to deal with it.

    Insight through customised dashboards

    The numbers tell the tale. That’s why, in addition to taking care of logistics, AB Texel has taken things a step further by using data dashboards. Over the past few years we’ve made substantial investments in developing our IT systems, enabling us to retrieve the required data quickly. We use this information to give you, the client, clear insight into the results of the overall logistics process.

    We can see at a glance things like the number of empty kilometres driven per day, CO2 emissions, and the places where there are long waiting times for loading and unloading, for example. Real-time data is also an option, so you can follow your shipment using track & trace.

    The dashboards are customised: you decide which data you want to focus on. You don't do that alone, but together with our data analysts. They will be happy to help you fine-tune the dashboard

    Measurements also serve to stimulate improvement. We work with the client to examine the relevant data from the dashboard, and look for areas where changes can be made. How can we make the logistics process more efficient? Can the order process be set up more intelligently, and what are the options for optimising trip planning?

    Once we’ve identified the areas for improvement, we look for solutions together. We monitor these results too, using the data dashboard and the help of our team of experts in logistics, data, HR and IT.

    The result? An optimal process, from ordering through to delivery.

    Integrating together

    We go the extra mile for our clients in this area too: how can we provide even more support to you in the supply chain? Our philosophy is that by combining our knowledge and positive qualities, together we achieve the best results. For example, we can take over the entire stock planning process for you, so you know that you’ll always have the right raw materials delivered at just the right time.

    We work with you to look for ways to further integrate our business processes. We do this in collaboration with a team of AB Texel experts, with short lines of communication and direct points of contact. These enable us to quickly translate your requirements into practice.
