Rhenus Receive Award for Innovative “Smart Sourcing” Solution

Rhenus Receive Award for Innovative “Smart Sourcing” Solution

The Rhenus Freight Industry Solutions unit recently received an award from the state of Baden-Württemberg for its special solutions in the field of Industry 4.0 with their  “smart sourcing” concept to manage supply chains in an intelligent manner for customers.

The “smart sourcing” concept actively monitors and manages the complete transportation and flow of information, the processes, the suppliers and the logistics partners. The key success factors in the concept are the web-based communications platform known as RSCC (Rhenus Supply Chain Connect), the control tower that is used and the standardized management of partners. All the procedures are handled fully automatically, ranging from the request sent to the supplier (order) to the transport advice note and even settling accounts with the transport service companies.

The control tower is the main hub of the operation and is able to recognize and resolve any disruptions that occur before they become a problem. If a fault does happen, it’s documented in a ticket system, assessed and then remedied at the source; ultimately making the supply chain more transparent and easier to maintain.

“The award confirms our successful approach of developing innovative concepts together with our customers by talking to them. The fact that we’re receiving the award in one of the leading business regions in Europe is a matter of pride for us,” said André Remy, Head of Supply Chain Solutions at Rhenus Freight Industry Solutions.
