Case Story: Pack and Sea A/S
Tracking 350,000 returnable transport assets
Full visibility and traceability, major cost savings, and revenue generated from rental services turn a high cost problem into a business for Danish fishermen. Pack and Sea are now expanding their services to new customers thanks to Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics™ Asset Management solution.
Keeping track of assets location
Pack and Sea A/S is a collaborative venture formed by ten leading Danish fishing ports, aimed at streamlining the logistics of fish crates. With a dynamic inventory encompassing more than 350,000 crates and various other asset types distributed across multiple locations, the complexities associated with tracking, invoicing, and control have presented formidable challenges, incurring substantial costs along the way.
Knowing the whereabouts of 350,000 fish crates used to land fish was a former nightmare for the Danish fishing industry. Not only did each fishing port not always know where its allocated crates were, but they were facing a very big loss of crates, as these were not returned
UHF RFID tags uniquely identifying each fish crate
Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics™ Asset Management solution includes, that each crate is fitted with two specially designed UHF RFID tags uniquely identifying each fish crate. Fixed RFID readers placed at each “high flow” handover point combined with handheld terminals at other handover points track the flow of crates through the supply chain from crate storage to fishing vessel to port to auction to processing company or exporter to the washing machine and finally back to storage. All transactions in the transport flow are registered. Data is sent to a central server hosted by Lyngsoe Systems generating online reports and providing data for invoicing, while also serving as a valuable resource for: reducing logistics costs for the entire industry; minimizing investments in assets; invoice purposes; and enhancing food traceability.
"The system was relatively easy to launch and was welcomed by the fishing industry. Benefits include full traceability, enhanced quality, and food safety."
CEO of Pack and Sea
Implementing Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics™ asset management meant:
- Reduction in number of misplaced and lost crates
- Procurement of new assets declined by more than 50%
- Complete visibility and traceability of fish crates in the fresh food supply chain, meeting legal traceability requirements automatically.
- Documentation of transactions and flow of fish crates used for invoicing
- Asset utilization increased by over 200%
- Reduced transport costs by directing shipments to locations with crate needs or specific crate types.
- Automating data capture and using the system to manage manpower related to administration was reduced by 70%
Full visibility into the flow of returnable transport assets
The system gives Pack and Sea full visibility into the flow of returnable transport assets from the ship to the end-user. Asset Management does not only create a real-time overview of the number of fish crates in each area in the supply chain, but it also documents each fish crate’s actual status and ownership. The fish inside the crate is linked to the crate, so complete food traceability is another benefit of the system. The system stores information on catch date and location, fish species, and other data, automatically uploaded to Pack and Sea’s database.
Full visibility and traceability, major cost savings, and revenue generated from rental services make fish crate logistics an attractive business, and Pack and Sea are now expanding their services to new customers due to the system.
