Every year, Indaver manages and processes over 5 million tonnes of waste at various sites both at home and abroad. This waste must be supplied and removed using lorry transport and this adds up to a number of logistical challenges. By optimising the in and outflow with a global Logistics Management System (LMS) from EQUANS, Indaver has succeeded in improving its efficiency, capacity and security at multiple sites.
Indaver asked EQUANS to find a solution that would allow several of the logistical processes at the sites in Dunkirk, Doel and Willebroek to be automated. This included an option for drivers to register themselves, access controls for visitors and partners, the weighing and administrative processing of loads, communication and monitoring of security requirements on site, and more. To this end, EQUANS used a central communication and orchestration platform which enabled improved collaboration between the various sub-systems in the supply chain. The system is 100% integrated with the ERP system and the existing back-end and front-end solutions from Indaver.
