How Quehenberger Logistics reduces the risk of theft and delay with a shipment & asset monitoring solution

Quehenberger Logistics reduces transport risks with a shipment & asset monitoring solution

Logo Quehenberger-Logistics

Quehenberger Logistics benefits from personal consulting and secure overall solutions from T-Systems. Logistics customers will receive even more transparency, security, and, in the future, an even more powerful customer portal from their preferred logistics partner: Quehenberger Logistics.

In the event of deviations from the previously defined and permitted values, the transport manager receives an alarm message in the Quehenberger Logistics control tower. For example, if a container stays at a site for too long, if the temperature of medicines rises, or if precious textiles are in danger of taking a route that is pursued by thieves. This means that those responsible no longer have to rely on statements from the transporters, but have the facts on the screen and can immediately initiate countermeasures or inform the customer.

Benefits for the customer

  • Effective and efficient prevention of theft and delay
  • Immediate proactive response by transport managers in the event of alarm due to threshold deviations
  • System integration: automated transfer of transport orders from the Quehenberger Logistics’ management system to the cloud-based Roambee portal

Reduce the risk of theft and time delays

Even in times of globalization when the world is becoming more and more like a village, the distances that goods have to travel remain the same. More and more goods are being transported from one continent to another on increasingly risky routes - and criminals lurking on many transport routes are systematically targeting the valuable freight. And incalculable time thieves, such as customs clearance, are permanent travel companions.

The challenge

  • The geographical orientation, sensitive core industries and the risk of theft increase the need for transport security at Quehenberger Logistics.
  • The solution has to make the whole critical transport situation transparent in real time.

Together with T-Systems, Quehenberger Logistics has also applied its digitalization and automation strategy to the area of transport security. Shipment & asset monitoring powered by Roambee, a tracking and monitoring solution implemented by T-Systems with precise tailoring to the special requirements of Quehenberger Logistics, is being put to use.

The solution

  • The Bee devices, which are attached to the cargo and equipped with sensors, report all important information such as location, temperature, manipulation, humidity, light, change of position, pressure, and movement in real time.
  • All information is collected in the newly established control tower at Quehenberger Logistics.
  • Quehenberger Logistics integrates the cloud solution into its entire transport management system aimed at quality assurance and proactive problem management becoming an integral part of the service thus benefiting the customer.
