Logistics optimization for Carconnex
Since 1994, Carconnex has been present on the European car trading market and specializes in buying and selling new and second-hand cars in bigger quantities. These cars are to be sold to professional car traders, in Belgium as well as in the rest of Europe.
In order to streamline logistics operations and to optimize organization of transport, Carconnex appealed to the know-how and expertise of the consultants of De Putter & Co.
In a first phase, transport activities were financially audited. Both transport for own account as well as transport subcontracted to third parties, were submitted to a thorough cost analyses. The necessary improvement actions have been implemented.
After successfully having completed this phase, they decided to continue the cooperation and optimize the logistics and transport processes. Name of the project: “CARs – Logistics Services”. The application requirements for the development of a tailor-made logistics software were written down, and a KPI dashboard and Service Level Agreements for transport carriers were developed. Result of this project: a more efficient treatment of logistics and transports.
