The automotive sector is under a huge transformation and its supply chain is becoming more and more demanding in terms of visibility. The objective is to improve cost effectiveness but also to deal with the transformation of the retail model to deliver a true omni-channel customer experience. To deal with these challenges, GEFCO improves its delivery tracing offer with a mobile traceability solution on a European scale: GEFCO DRIVE.
GEFCO DRIVE: a solution which provides real time traceability to vehicle manufacturers and dealers
The features of this mobile application:
Innovative information services for car dealers
To cope with your dealer’s challenges: delivering the best customer experience to their final consumer and improve cost efficiency and cashflow, GEFCO has developed automatic notification services by email or SMS.
Real time information transmitted to GEFCO Automotive Portal
To manage your flows in real time, GEFCO DRIVE transmits all the data in real time to the Automotive portal (Customer Collaborative portal dedicated to Automotive flows). All the geolocalisation information regarding the deliveries can be viewed on a map and the POD uploaded in just one click.
A European solution available in 17 languages!
GEFCO DRIVE is being deployed in France, UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Spain, Slovakia and Italy. The first step targeting mainly our own fleet and drivers.
GEFCO DRIVE strengthens our delivery tracing solutions:
Continuous innovation process to deliver flexible and smart solutions
To reduce transit times, the GEFCO DRIVE application will receive the pick orders with the details of the vehicle location at the compound. “We will save time in shipping operations and hopefully reduce the global lead time“ said John van Wanrooy, IT officer of Finished Vehicles Logistics, GEFCO Netherlands. ”Furthermore, we are working on the E-CMR. The POC [Proof Of Concept] realised this year is positive. We are also designing a dedicated application for car dealers." said Frederic Bey, design engineer of the app.
We explore and invent flexible and smart solutions in cooperation with the driver, dealer and car manufacturer driven by the desire to push back boundaries and respond with agility to the most demanding challenges.
