SweetLife, a supplier of the world’s biggest retail chains, ensures on-time delivery using Arviem’s solution

PROJECT SUMMARY

 

SweetLife is producing sweeteners, sugar-free fresh- mints, and milk chocolate mini-bars. SweetLife is serving an increasing number of satisfied consumers and major retailers in more than 30 countries.

After several SweetLife clients implemented new cost-saving methods asking suppliers to deliver ‘On- time and In-full’ fining suppliers for both early and late deliveries; SweetLife as well as other manufacturers found themselves under pressure to increase their supply chain efficiency. SweetLife was challenged not only to deliver on time but also to provide perfect product quality in full in order to meet the new targets and avoid financial penalties.

SweetLife needed a solution to enable the company to gain real-time visibility into the location of shipments in transit and the condition of goods on road, empowering SweetLife to calculate the ETA dynamically and mitigate supply chain disruptions. After the successful execution of the pilot project in which Arviem met the predefined success criteria and KPIs, SweetLife and Arviem agreed on deployment terms and conditions for the large-scale deployment of the service.

As a result, with real-time data insights, SweetLife knows whether an order or delivery is on time, knows the shipment status in real-time, and is able to optimize logistics processes. Additionally, SweetLife knows whether the cargo has been tampered with, whether it has experienced any significant shocks or temperature fluctuations that might have negatively affected the quality of the product or its packaging.

SweetLife’s benefits after using Arviem’s service for a period of 6 months

The Arviem hassle-free cargo monitoring service allows SweetLife to sense and respond to disruptions in the supply chain with extreme precision and defend profit margins through a resilient, efficient and flexible supply chain. Data insights enable logistics professionals to optimize shipping routes by defining safe and optimal routes, evaluate carrier performance levels against benchmarks, analyze logistics carbon footprint, improve the security of cargo, and to reduce business risk. Sweetlife could immediately see potential savings in:

✅  Logistics Cost reduction: 2%

✅  Admin Cost reduction: 5%

✅  Penalty Fee Cost reduction: 70%

✅  Working Capital Cost reduction: 5%

“Thanks to Arviem’s service we did not only manage to address our need for a shipment tracking solution which dynamically updates ETA but also developed capabilities to optimize our supply chain and logistics processes.”
