Procter & Gamble Monitor Shipments with Pinpointers Trailer Tracking...
Pinpointers is delighted to announce that Procter & Gamble (Europe's
largest fast moving consumer goods company) has chosen Pinpointers
unique 'Plan v Actual' trailer tracking system to monitor and assess haulier
Prior to adopting the Pinpointers system, P&G had no real-time
visibility of the status of their shipments. By using Pinpointers
P&G are now notified in real-time of any:
- Shipments that have fallen behind schedule whilst on-route;
with details of the amount of time delayed by.
- Shipments that have arrived late; with details of how late
the shipment was in reaching its destination.
- Shipments delivered on-time.
The real-time notification of these events enables P&G to be
pro-active in liaising with customers to inform them of any expected
delays. The minute by minute trailer tracking of a shipments location also
provides an audit trail that can be used to assess why delays have
Reports generated from the information gathered, provides P&G
with a system for assessing the percentage of shipments made on-time
against those that were late. The automated production of this
information saves P&G a great deal of back-office administration,
and is used to assess the haulier's performance over a given period
of time and measure it against SLA's.
Having operated with this system for 3 years, we have brought
about a stepchange in our service levels. We are convinced of
the merits of Pinpointers trailer tracking
system and are convinced the functionality
available will be an essential ingredient for success in the
