CASE: Havi Logistics

HAVI Logistics is responsible for running the distribution of all deliveries for convenience shops, catering companies, and restaurant chains, for example, McDonald’s. HAVI Logistics operates more than 100 distribution centers in Europe and Asia and visits approximately 20,000 delivery points. Being able to manage the complex supply chain, operational efficiency, real-time visibility and traceability is a key requirement for success. The Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics™ platform was put into operation to provide an effective tool to support warehouse and distribution processes, and provide HAVI Logistics with a real-time overview of products and shipments from producer to a retailer.

Offering services in supply chain management, packaging, logistics and recycling & waste, HAVI partners with companies to address challenges big and small across the supply chain, from commodity to customer.

HAVI manages the flow of products in and out of three temperature zones – chilled, frozen and dry across their network.


Quick response strategy in case of recalls

Being faced with increased food traceability requirements as well as internal demands for improved supply chain efficiency made HAVI Logistics look for a new warehouse and distribution system in 2005. The system should provide them with a quick response strategy in case of recalls, enable supply chain visibility, and be scalable to support future market expansion. Full visibility and traceability were necessary to utilize the system for continuous supply chain optimization.


Real-time transparent overview of the flow of products

Lyngsoe Systems’ solution provides a real-time transparent overview of the flow of products from manufacturers through distribution centers to restaurants. The system manages real-time traceability in 38 European DC’s.

Documentation is available through web-based reports to assigned users.

The solution handles the following warehouse and distribution processes:

  • Receiving of goods (HACCP, quality inspection)
  • Picking of goods
  • Loading of goods (consolidation and loading control)
  • Delivery/Proof of delivery
  • Stocktaking
  • DC to DC replenishment
  • Load unit and packaging material administration (housekeeping)


Increased brand protection for HAVI Logistics and their customers

  • Complete visibility and traceability throughout a global distribution network and provided the ability to block distribution at floor level and limit the number of affected products in case of a recall.
  • Online documentation for food traceability and increased brand protection for both HAVI Logistics and their customers.


Full visibility and traceability

The customer has gained multiple benefits by implementing the Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics™ Platform, as the full visibility and traceability have supported them in meeting legal requirements as well as optimizing their global supply chain. They have improved the protection of their strong brands against brand value erosion and at the same time minimized consumers’ risks.
