“We are very pleased with the work Biarri has done over the past year to know that our customer services has improved further and significant savings have been made. To outsource the optimisaion of our fleet to specialists has been a very good business decision, leaving us to concentrate on increasing the efficiency of our transport and operations”

Transport Planning solutions on tap for Asahi
Asahi Beverages needed to reduce their transport costs and the time spent scheduling their transport routes, and Biarri Supply Chain’s team responded. The solution needed to be effective for more than 100 truckloads of beverage products delivered by Asahi per day across over 1000 deliveries. Subsequently, Biarri Supply Chain went on to save Asahi 10% of its transport costs. Not only that, but by adopting Biarri’s vehicle routing tool, Asahi was also able to provide better customer service through improved adherence to agreed delivery time windows. Last year, Asahi achieved a 6% reduction in kilometres travelled and a 14% reduction in truck trips, despite an increase in unit sales, with less human planning effort.
The solution was delivered in weeks and continues to be expanded with the Asahi business.
