THE CHALLENGE​

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.

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 the European and Chinese supply chain.

The solution is HAVI Logistics’ online documentation for food traceability and a tool to meet the EU Regulation 178/2002. 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)

BENEFITS

  • 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.

RESULT

They have improved the protection of their strong brands against brand value erosion and at the same time minimized consumers’ risks.

A total of more than 225,000 crates and add other types of assets circulating around multiple locations made tracking, invoicing and control an extremely complicated – and expensive – task.

  • CASE: Danpo A/S Reception of live birds with RFID on transport modules About DANPO A/S 23 trucks from all over the country transport approximately 200,000 chickens for slaughter at Danpo’s plant in North Jutland per day. Danpo A/S is a division in the Scandi Standard group of poultry companies. THE CHALLENGE​ inaccurate data on the bird’s weight At Danpo, the standard way to record the average weight of chickens was to weigh the truck on a weighbridge and its entire cargo on arrival. This process was repeated on departure when the truck had been emptied and cleaned. This method led to inaccuracies, due to all the dirt, water, etc. on the truck at arrival, which was included at the original weighing on arrival, but not on the exit weighing; therefore giving inaccurate data on the bird’s weight. THE SOLUTION Lyngsoe Systems equipped around 500 chicken modules with robust RFID tags In order to eliminate this problem, Danpo implemented a system that only weighs the chicken cages while at the same time keeping track of where the birds came from. Danpo opted for an RFID solution, where Lyngsoe Systems equipped around 500 chicken modules with robust RFID tags, which can tolerate […]
