Asset Visibility: The Main Problem Facing Waste Management
Poor waste 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.
Data from our customers shows that
Container numbers are up to 40% inaccurate
- Waste operators have no visibility of how many containers they have.
Container locations are up to 50% inaccurate
- Waste operators have compromised visibility as to where their containers are.
35% of containers are not serviced for at least a month
- Containers sit at sites, not generating sales and impacting availability to respond to customers.
30% of vehicle journeys and 40% of site visits take longer than average
- Siloed transport data impacts operational productivity.
Operating system data is 30% inaccurate
- Visibility of real world operations is compromised, impacting efficiency and performance.
How does it happen?
1. The container has no individual identity – And isn’t tracked
2. It gets delivered to customer – But isn’t part of the job you book on your system
3. Your operating system gets out of sync with reality – Manually entered data as to where a container should be is often inaccurate
4. You lose visibility of your container until your customer requests a collection – This can often be months, sometimes never
5. You run out of containers at depot – Creating transport inefficiency and the need to purchase more
6. Your vehicle tracking data is disconnected – Many journeys, customer and depot visits take longer than you realise
- Revenues from your existing operations are compromised
- Containers aren’t available to respond to customers or sales enquiries, impacting service and the ability to grow the business
- You purchase more containers that aren’t needed
- Your transport operations are not optimised
- You don’t know what capacity you have, so can’t plan ahead effectively
