If you have found yourself with the problem of not having enough RoRo’s and skips available to run your business, you are not alone.
Your instinct was probably to buy more. If you could only see them, you wouldn’t need to.
We’re going to talk about the waste industry’s big problem, poor visibility. We will touch on what it means, how it happens and how it hurts your business.
Poor container and vehicle visibility has been choking the waste industry for decades. The problems that come with it eat their way into your revenue, efficiency, productivity and customer service.
Quick question –
If we were to ask you how many skips and RoRo’s you have, where exactly they are and how often they are serviced, could you give us the answers?
We have worked with our customers to answer these questions. In each case their reality was very different to their expectations.
Our data now clearly demonstrates that waste operators:
Have on average 40% more containers than they actually need.
30-50% of their customers have container inventory that is different to what they think.
30-40% of their containers are not serviced for at least a month.
So the visibility problem is deep, and much bigger than the industry realises.
This is how it happens
What effect does this have on your operations?
THE CONTAINERS YOU CAN’T SEE: Sit at sites, not generating sales
CUSTOMERS OFTEN HAVE THE WRONG CONTAINER TYPE: That don’t turn quickly enough
YOU STRUGGLE FOR AVAILABILITY: So you purchase more
YOU DON’T HAVE CAPACITY TO SELL: So you can’t take full advantage of peak season
YOU CAN’T RESPOND QUICKLY TO SALES ENQUIRIES: So you lose out to competitors
YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT CAPACITY YOU HAVE: So you can’t plan for the future
How do you solve the problem?
Your operations are fast-moving, so you need real time visibility. Which means tracking your containers. To see and action the data you need software. Sounds complicated?
Here at PIN, we have created a revolutionary tracking and software solution that gives you full visibility of your containers.
We supply and fit low power tracking devices for each container, quickly and with no operational disruption. Every container is given a unique digital identity, from which point every container movement, collection and delivery is automatically tracked and presented to you via the PIN software - all in real time.
You will know exactly how many containers you have, where they are and how often they are serviced. Slow movers can be targeted proactively, enabling you to create spare capacity for growth, instantly respond to enquiries and increase your sales.
Trend data means you can easily understand where you are now and plan for the future.
