"Our American and Brazilian subsidiaries can follow the progress of goods in real time at the same time as we do at the headquarters. It's a real time saver and everything is more transparent."

Céline Saliot
Transport and warehouse manager

Founded in 1927, Grosfillex is a French industrial company that designs, manufactures and sells products for furnishing and remodelling of residential and professional indoor and outdoor space.

In February 2020, Grosfillex had to urgently import a 20 tons mold from its American subsidiary to its factory in Rhône-Alpes. The sanitary crisis has started to affect Europe and the capacity is limited. The reactivity and speed of OVRSEA's teams have seduced Grosfillex which entrusted them with this first key transport in order not to interrupt the production line and to maintain orders.

Challenge

Founded in 1927, Grosfillex is a French industrial company that designs, manufactures and sells products for furnishing and remodelling of residential and professional indoor and outdoor space.

In February 2020, Grosfillex had to urgently import a 20 tons mold from its American subsidiary to its factory in Rhône-Alpes. The sanitary crisis has started to affect Europe and the capacity is limited. The reactivity and speed of OVRSEA's teams have seduced Grosfillex which entrusted them with this first key transport in order not to interrupt the production line and to maintain orders.

Objectives

  • Gain visibility on raw material supplies
  • Track the shipments of finished products in real time
  • Simplify the communication between the head office and each of its subsidiaries

Solution

The platform and the follow-up of the OVRSEA teams have lightened the workload of the Grosfillex logistics team by simplifying reporting information and follow-up on the goods. Indeed, the platform centralizes all the topics relating to transport, from the request to the invoicing (quote, shipping, document, follow-up, reporting on time schedules and costs of transport...), which makes it possible to save a considerable time to the Logistics team of Grosfillex.

Transportation documents and reports can be downloaded directly on the platform, facilitating the work of the Logistics team, but also the Finance team.

Real-time tracking of goods is an important feature for transport management and allows headquarters and subsidiaries to follow the progress of goods.

The employees at headquarters and at the subsidiary are informed at the same time of the pickup and the delivery of goods. Visibility is improved and email exchanges are reduced. The American and Brazilian subsidiaries have therefore been able to increase their autonomy and optimize their logistics management.
