About the Client

Our customer, a prominent figure in Romania's food production and agriculture, is dedicated to excellence, a commitment reflected in their high-quality products.

Embracing new technologies, they aim to enhance consumer benefits. Our client’s dedication to excellence is mirrored in their logistics operations, where precision, real-time monitoring, and advanced temperature control systems come into play.

The Need

Maintaining a controlled temperature in trucks during transit is critical to ensure the quality and safety of food.

A significant challenge they encounter is the transportation of food products. Ensuring trucks maintain a controlled temperature during transit is crucial to preserve the quality and safety of the food. This logistical endeavor requires meticulous planning and sophisticated technology to meet strict standards and deliver products in optimal condition. This showcases their commitment to excellence and innovation in every aspect of their operation.

At ROPARDO, we are inspired by such challenges, as they push us to innovate and provide solutions that not only meet but exceed our clients’ expectations, driving forward our shared vision for excellence and technological advancement in every aspect of their business.

The Solution

Improving Logistics and Monitoring through a State-of-the-Art Custom Application

We developed a state-of-the-art custom application designed to streamline the logistics and monitoring processes for our client. Understanding the diversity of users interacting with the application, from back-office staff to truck drivers, our solution is optimized for various devices, ensuring seamless access and functionality whether using a complete web desktop or mobile devices.

Our innovative solution is structured around two key pillars aimed at improving logistics and monitoring for our client in the food production and agriculture sector:

Responsive Web Application

We developed a versatile web application accessible to various user groups, including back-office personnel and truck drivers. This application ensures effortless access to operational data across different devices, facilitating efficient workflow and real-time decision-making.

The solution lies in its integration with two pivotal modules designed to incorporate back-office staff:

  • Picking App Integration: The application interfaces with the Picking App, presenting vital daily order details such as date, client, products, and quantities. This integration enables prompt responses to order adjustments, significantly boosting customer satisfaction.
  • Truck Allocation App Integration: By syncing with the Truck Allocation App, our solution provides comprehensive insights into order deliveries per truck, facilitating optimal distribution. Users can view a detailed list of active trucks, including the total number of orders, delivery locations, driver information and the order’s number/ID.

IoT Infrastructure

Our solution harnesses the power of IoT technology to capture and analyze real-time temperature data from trucks. The data collected by IoT sensors is transmitted to IoT servers for in-depth analysis, ensuring the maintenance of optimal conditions during transportation.

  • Advanced Temperature Monitoring: At the core of our IoT integration is the real-time temperature monitoring within each truck, leveraging IoT sensors to transmit data to the Cockpit application. This essential feature guarantees the maintenance of suitable conditions for food products during transit, significantly minimizing the potential for quality-related complaints.
  • IoT-Driven Reporting and Data Analysis: The application’s reporting module harnesses IoT- generated data to provide a detailed analysis of various KPIs, including Delivery Efficiency, Temperature Consistency, and Fleet Utilization. By aggregating data from across the IoT infrastructure, the system offers a holistic view of the logistics process, enabling data-driven decisions and strategic improvements.
