Warehouse & Yard Utilization

The Impact on Your Business

Warehouse and manufacturing yard space represent real-estate expense and overhead for your company. More efficient and effective space utilization of this space can help reduce inventory holding costs.  Avoid inventory placement redundancies and help speed up items’ turn-around time with a First-In-First-Out (FIFO) model with Roambee. With our Bee and BeeBeacons, you can quickly create an indoor virtual tracking zone. Combined with Roambee’s real-time data and analytics, you’ll be more proactive and prepared for your stocking plan even before the shipment arrives. Plus, effective placement and management helps maximize usage of warehouse and yard real-estate. Running a cold chain operation? Reduce item wastage by ensuring fewer days in storage, or identifying warehouse temperature “hot spots” which could lead to spoilage of goods.

The Roambee Approach

1. Attach BeeBeacons to every item or asset you wish to monitor in the indoor facility or yard.
2. Create virtual tracking zones, “BeeZones,” using Roambee’s Bees or turn your smartphone into a Bee with our “Mobile as a Bee” app.
3. Get asset, item or movement data within the zone, or a summary of each zones’ activity.
4. The BeeCentral team identifies ageing assets, improperly utilized zones, and coordinates with your local staff to improve their utilization.

End-to-End Loss & Theft Prevention of Goods

Across Your Warehouse and In-Transit

GPS based tracking systems can help ensure your fleet’s safety, but do little when it comes to the safety of your individual packages. When it comes to warehouse monitoring and safety, technologies like RFID are cumbersome to setup and expensive*. Supply chains around the world suffer from the inability to monitor goods at a package level.

Now, Roambee is enabling enterprises globally to monitor goods not just in-transit, but in the warehouses, yards, and ports too with the industry’s first in-transit, battery operated BLE/Wi-Fi/GSM hotspot and beacon solution for packages in the supply chain. This solution also works indoors and outdoors in yards and warehouses.

Loss and theft can be prevented by immediately initiating action when tagged packages move out of their assigned zones, whether it is in a warehouse or a truck out for delivery. Route deviations and unauthorized stops can also indicate risk, so Roambee’s BeeCentral service works 24/7 to take prompt action which a potential threat arises, and can initiate recovery action if an item is stolen or lost.

GlaxoSmithKline’s Project Suraksha (Safety) or CEAT’s Material Department have both proven that Roambee is the preferred choice when it comes to goods loss and prevention across the enterprise.

*See how the BeeBeacon solution compares to RFID

This use case applies to many industries, including: Automotive, Pharma & Life Sciences, Electronics, Consumer Goods, Food & Beverage, 3PL & Logistics, and Fresh & Frozen Foods.

The Roambee Approach

End-to-End Cold Chain Monitoring

In Your Warehouse, In-Transit, and Stores

Data loggers, which have dominated the cold chain industry for decades, have major drawbacks. For example, when using a data logger, you will only have “after the fact” temperature trails. These are less meaningful, since your goods may already have been compromised, spoiled, or contaminated.

Truck based GPS and or warehouse temperature monitoring systems can provide data about the cold storage, but only at a macro level (such as a truck or a particular region in the warehouse), and not at a package level despite temperature variations even within enclosed environments. This can lead to expensive damage of goods despite the presence of these monitoring solutions.

Roambee provides global, end to end visibility and condition monitoring across your temperature-sensitive supply chain – in your warehouse, in-transit, or the point of customer sale. Using our Bee and BeeBeacon solutions, we can monitor your perishable goods at an item-level granularity. Plus, with BeeCentral, we can take immediate action across the chain of custody when any of the package conditions, such as changes in temperature or humidity, threaten its integrity.

This use case applies to many industries, including: Pharma & Life Sciences, Consumer Goods, Food & Beverage, 3PL & Logistics, and Fresh & Frozen Foods.

The Roambee Approach

1. Place BeeBeacons on the items and use Bees to create virtual Beezones, or use the “Mobile as a Bee” app as mobile gateways. Remember, you can also continue to use Bees as a standalone devices to monitor real-time temperature, as well.
2. Configure safe conditions thresholds – Temperature, Humidity, Pressure.
3. Get real-time information into the location, time, cause and extent of excursions, along with Mean Kinetic Temperature (MKT).
4. Use BeeCentral to take immediate action on condition excursions by contacting those who are handling the goods when the alert is incurred, thereby preventing spoilage.

End-to-End Item-Level Monitoring

In Your Warehouse, Yard, and In-Transit

GPS vehicle trackers only go as far as tracking your vehicle as a unit. If you do not own the vehicle transporting your goods, or you have a multi-modal shipment transportation, it gets even more difficult to monitor it in real-time.

Warehouse monitoring solutions like RFID, are expensive due to infrastructure setup and man-hour costs*. You’re left without a cost-effective, scalable method to monitor goods in your warehouse and in-transit at a per-item level.

Roambee’s Bee + BeeBeacon solution is the industry’s first in-transit hotspot and package level monitoring solution. It creates “virtual tracking zones,” enabling you to monitor packages throughout your warehouse or yard.

By monitoring goods at this unmatched level of granularity, you can be assured of package and asset safety inside, outside, and in-transit, ensure greater efficiency with last-mile deliveries, and get actionable information and analytics for optimal routing thereby lowering your logistics “cost per delivery.”

*See the Roambee’s BeeBeacon solutions vs RFID comparison

This use case applies to many industries, including: Automotive, Pharma & Life Sciences, Electronics, Consumer Goods, 3PL & Logistics, and Chemicals.

The Roambee Approach

1. Attach BeeBeacons to each item. Create virtual tracking zones with Bees or use the Roambee “Mobile as a Bee” app in the warehouse or in-transit.
2. The Bees or your mobile device senses the package IDs entering/exiting within its range.
3. Monitor items moving in and out of your zone, and items that go missing.
4. Use BeeCentral to action upon missed/wrong deliveries in-transit or improperly placed assets in a warehouse 24x7.

3PL & Logistics

Real-time information for delivery optimization and ETA

On-time delivery is a critical concern for logistics companies. They are looking for ways to optimize delivery routes, control costs, and provide value-added service to their customers. Current monitoring solutions, such as fleet management systems, don't meet their needs. They lack insight analytics into transporter performance and route exceptions or foresight analytics into ETA or theft or spoilage risk.

Roambee partners with 3PL and logistics companies to provide real-time visibility they can use both to monitor shipments and to offer as a value-added service to their customers.

Roambee's traceability solution uses rugged, portable devices ("Bees") to send real-time data about shipments to the cloud, where it's available from an easy-to-access web portal. The service includes real-time event alerts, reports and analytics providing logistics companies with data on routes, detention times, deviations from routes or protocols, shipment condition, and ETA. Roambee analyzes real-time data in the context of historical data, providing the information required to optimize the delivery approach to small and large distributors. Companies can give their customers the ability to access the web portal for real-time tracking information, including ETA. There is no upfront investment in hardware or software infrastructures—fees are assessed on a per-device basis when a device is in use. Roambee's innovative, pay-as-you-go model makes shipment monitoring an affordable solution for logistics companies looking to improve service quality and customer satisfaction.

Optimize delivery routes. With a Roambee Bee embedded within a delivery vehicle, you have the ability to collect extensive route data, including stops and distance traveled. This information can be leveraged to determine best routes and optimize delivery schedules.

Roambee's services give you real-time data on shipment movement and stops so you can optimize delivery routes and manage short delivery windows. Detention time calculations provide insights into average wait times at loading docks and delivery destinations. Logistics companies can easily share this real-time data with both the manufacturer and shipment recipient, helping to streamline the shipment process at both ends and increase on-time deliveries.

Food & Beverage

Real-time information on shipment detention, delivery optimization, and ETA

On-time delivery is a critical concern for food and beverage companies. They are looking for ways to optimize delivery routes, calculate delivery detention, and increase predictability of delivery windows. Real-time visibility for delivery vehicles is essential for analyzing and planning delivery routes. Data on detention time of trucks at warehouses — loading and unloading — makes it possible to estimate delivery windows better.

Current monitoring solutions, such fleet management systems, are inadequate because they are limited to providing current movement data and not historical information such as patterns of excessive speed or reckless driving. Additionally, fleet management data may not be available for trucks or trailers that are leased.

Only a system that analyzes real-time data in the context of historic data provides the complete set of information required to optimize the delivery approach to small and large distributors.

Roambee's portable vehicle traceability solution enables food and beverage companies to manage deliveries, especially using leased vehicles. Roambee's next-generation technology and pay-as-you-go business model make shipment monitoring flexible and affordable.

Consumer Goods

Affordable real-time monitoring for shipment security and ETA

Security and on-time delivery are key concerns for consumer goods shipments worldwide. Certain regions and trade lanes are at increased risk for shipment theft and tampering. Real-time tracking and monitoring for shipments in high-risk areas are critical for reducing costs.

Physical security, such as locking systems, and driver screening, have their limits. A real-time monitoring solution, showing the vehicle's movements and routes, dramatically improves a company's ability to increase security and to detect and deter theft.

Roambee's next-generation monitoring technology and its pay-as-you-go business model make shipment monitoring an affordable solution for companies concerned with preventing theft and ensuring on-time delivery of consumer goods.

Protect your shipment. With real-time visibility, it is easier to manage a range of inventory control tasks, including setting accurate windows for shipment deliveries.

Electronics

Affordable real-time monitoring for shipment security and ETA

Safety is a key concern for consumer electronics shipments worldwide. Certain regions, trade lanes, and ports are at increased risk for shipment theft and tampering. Real-time tracking and monitoring for multi-modal shipments in high-risk areas or industries are critical for reducing costs.

Physical security, such as locking systems, and driver screening, have their limits. A real-time monitoring service, showing the shipment movements and routes, dramatically improves a company's ability to increase security and to detect and deter theft.

Roambee's next-generation monitoring technology and its pay-as-you-go business model make shipment monitoring an affordable solution for consumer electronics.

Chemicals

Security and safety of chemicals, vehicles and people in the chain of custody

Chemical manufacturing companies such as Phillips Carbon Black are monitoring their shipments for security and transport safety across surface, sea and air. Real-time information on shipment condition and vehicle movement, especially for Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT), are critical to reducing the chances of a chemical spill or managing them effectively when they do occur.

Current monitoring solutions, such as fleet management systems, are inadequate because they are limited to providing only track and trace options.

Roambee's services give chemical manufacturers real-time visibility plus an additional first line of defense with the 24x7 "monitoring control tower" of BeeCentral. This can better mitigate the risk of incidents, as well as speed up critical response time to minimize potential negative impact on human life and the environment. With Roambee and BeeCentral, the historic patterns of potentially reckless driving activity can be combined with real-time information on speed and enforcement of safe driving hours by monitoring vehicle movement around the clock. This enables chemical companies to take immediate action both during an incident in addition to reducing the potential future risk of a chemical spills, vehicle accidents, or environmental disasters.

Mitigating risk. Monitoring speeding violations, restricted time movement, or unscheduled stops reduce the risk of an accident or the security of materials in transit. Roambee’s Bees sense acceleration and impact, which helps determine if an accident has taken place, thereby enabling quicker response to incidents and can reduce potential chemical spills.

To best utilize your warehouses, get complete control over your valuable equipment such as forklifts and other movable machinery.

Global pharma enterprises such as GlaxoSmithKline and Alere Medical rely on Roambee for their security and condition monitoring requirements. GlaxoSmithKline has partnered with Roambee for its Project Safety (read the GlaxoSmithKline case study), and Alere Medical is using Bees to prevent the spoilage of its goods.

Roambee provides end-to-end visibility and condition monitoring at a package level throughout the supply chain for the pharma industry using our Bee + BeeBeacon solution. We also deliver solutions to better utilize your warehouses through our asset monitoring solutions.

Security of goods in the warehouse and in-transit

Pilferage is a common problem in the pharma industry and no solution other than Roambee can provide end-to-end package level security in the warehouse, in-transit and through the last mile of delivery.

Learn how you can better secure your high-value pharma goods with package level monitoring throughout the distribution process with Roambee’s end-to-end supply chain security solution.

Cold chain integrity across the supply chain

Monitoring the Mean Kinetic Temperature (MKT) is critical for vaccines and cold-chain pharma shipments. As per the International Air Transport Association (IATA), 25% of vaccines reach their destination degraded due to incorrect shipping.

Current monitoring solutions such as data loggers are inadequate because they only provide a history of temperature rather than real-time temperature data. Only with real-time location and condition visibility can you take action when there is a potential or actual problem with temperature management. Further, warehouses and containers have temperature “hot spots” which means specific parcels in those zones may suffer spoilage or contamination despite data logger curves showing normalcy.

Learn how Roambee can help you monitor your cold chain operation at a package level in the warehouse and in-transit with “must-have” features such as MKT.

Zero lost sales while not overstocking

Inventory management at distribution centers is key to staying competitive in the pharma industry. Too much inventory can affect your bottom lines by adding to your holding costs while too little can put you in risk of losing your sales due to unavailability of stock at the point of sale.

To avoid lost sales, the pharma industry typically overstocks its warehouses. On average, they are running at nearly 117-231 days of inventory which is 2-3 times as much as FMCG companies as per a joint study by A.T Kearney with the Organization of Pharma Producers of India and the Indian Pharmaceutical Association.

Roambee can empower delivery on time as well as optimizing your transit times to save on inventory holding costs and run a just-in-time (JIT) operation, while still ensuring minimal risk of a lost sale due to out of stock situations.

Damage Prevention of Goods In-Transit

Pharma goods are often temperature sensitive, and fragile. Vaccines and other drugs must be packed in glass containers which can be damaged in-transit due to the excessive impact or mishandling.

Learn how our Bee’s shock and tilt sensors can help you identify the risk of damage early and prevent it.

Efficient warehousing

Pharma warehouses use portable automated machinery and expensive equipment which need to be monitored to yield highest utilization per square feet. Such assets are prone to being stolen, misplaced, or lost.

See how Roambee can improve your warehouse utilization and audit your assets with the click of a mouse – helping saving critical man-hours for your company.

Learn how Roambee can help you secure your warehouse assets such as forklifts against theft.

Roambee is your integrated Pharma visibility solution across the enterprise to reduce risk of loss, improve predictability for lean inventory management, and maintain your warehouses more efficiently.

Fresh & Frozen Foods

Affordable real-time monitoring of shipment condition and ETA

It's essential for food producers, packagers, and shippers to monitor the condition of food shipments to control temperature and guard against spoilage. Monitoring the MKT (Mean Kinetic Temperature) is critical for both fresh and frozen shipments of produce, meats, and seafood. Just because the temperature is going up by one degree does not mean the product is spoiled or the ice cream has melted. Roambee provides actionable information such as spoilage risk and recommends the window to fix the problem.

Current monitoring solutions such as RFID technology are inadequate because they provide only the history of temperature rather than real-time temperature data. Only with real-time visibility can companies know to take action if there is a potential or actual temperature problem at the package or refrigerated-container level. Roambee provides fresh and frozen food producers with the real-time visibility they need. With next-generation technology and a pay-as-you-go business model, Roambee enables food producers to reduce spoilage while at the same time controlling shipment-monitoring costs.

Gain control. Timely information about shipment temperature and other environmental factors enables companies to take preventive action whenever possible. If spoilage seems likely, companies can ship additional quantities to maintain adequate levels of inventory, especially with perishable products.

Auto Ancillaries. Secure your raw material or finished goods of auto parts in-transit, reduce delivery times, avoid disruption of production plans, and run a just-in-time (JIT) operation to save on inventory cost.

Auto Ancillaries. Secure your raw material or finished goods of auto parts in-transit, reduce delivery times, avoid disruption of production plans, and run a just-in-time (JIT) operation to save on inventory cost.

Let’s consider two types of automotive companies: Auto manufacturers like Hero Cycles (a subsidiary of Hero MotorCorp), and auto ancillaries like CEAT Tyres. Both types of companies (read the Hero Cycles case study) have their own visibility requirements at various stages in the vehicle manufacturing process – raw materials procurement, yard management, to finish goods monitoring. GPS systems go only as far as to monitor in-transit movement of a truckload of automotive goods, while RFID and other scan technologies to monitor large automotive yards or spare parts warehouses require either capital investment, fixed infrastructure or labor-intensive hours for manual scans of vehicles or parts.

Roambee has created an easy to adopt end-to-end automotive visibility solution to reduce cost for both auto manufacturers and auto ancillaries, whether it is around inbound materials monitoring, outbound supply chain visibility, bin management, or better yard utilization.

In-transit efficiency & security at an item-level

As an auto manufacturer, you are probably relying on your 3rd party logistics (3PL) service providers to distributors your finished products to your dealers. You could be using both surface and ocean modes of transport to get your finished goods across to your customer in another city, country or continent. Lost sales are common in the auto industry due to the unavailability of a particular color or model of a vehicle. Without being able to provide your dealers with confident estimated time of arrival (ETA) of the next delivery of stock, you’re left vulnerable to them purchasing a competive product. Its a challenging problem to solve, especially with added layers of multi-modal distribution scenarios where you’re having to rely on prompt connections of transport vehicles or railways with freight ships and clearance delays at ports.

Roambee ensures you can achieve better on-time delivery and predictability with your dealers – across the surface, ocean, ports and the last mile.

Learn how you can monitor your supply chain end-to-end at an item level through road, rail or even air using our Bee + BeeBeacon solution.

As an auto ancillary firm manufacturing tires or steering columns, on-time delivery is critical to your business to be a preferred OEM supplier. Late deliveries can disrupt production plans for your customer leading to heavy losses. The same applies for the inbound supply chain for your own production line. Not having the right grade of rubber or carbon black, for example, could interrupt production plans and cause downtime in your manufacturing.

See how CEAT Tyres is running a Just-In-time inventory model on their inbound supply chain using Roambee.

Roambee can also help you invoice your dealers or OEMs promptly, save on interest, and reduce working capital through our automated ePOD solution. Find out how Roambee’s automated ePOD solution works!

Compromised security of parts being shipped can cause revenue loss and result in increased insurance premiums. Learn how Roambee’s end-to-end loss & theft prevention solution enables you to monitor pallets, vehicles, even individual packages in-transit and at your warehouses.

Roambee’s alert features, like route deviation and unauthorized stop alerts, along with individual package-level visibility helps bring down pilferage and theft significantly, regardless of where the goods are located and the mode of transport used.

Reducing damage of vehicles & parts in-transit

Damage is prevalent in the automotive distribution chain. Cooper estimates that although damage has come down due to better oversight, American Honda, for example, has a frequency of damage of about 0.2% on the vehicles they ship. Damage is often caused by in-transit shock impact or handling. This can increase costs for repairs and drive up insurance premiums.

Learn how placing a Bee in your container and using Roambee’s BeeCentral service can help reduce the chance of damage with Roambee

Managing vehicle yards and spares in warehouses better

Utilizing your factory and dealer yards better will improve your ability to get more vehicles out to the market in shorter time, and save you real-estate costs.

With Roambee’s Bee + BeeBeacon solution, you can quickly and easily be creating “virtual zones.” With these, you can get easily get inventory audits at a click of a mouse and save countless man-hours in spotting your vehicles manually in the warehouse prior to shipping.

See how you can improve the utilization of your yards.

Reducing inventory loss and improving utilization of pallets, bins, tubs, or totes

Returnable supply chain assets include pallets, bins, totes, and tubs that are used to purchase or distribute parts with. Whether you’re an auto manufacturer or an auto ancillary firm, you either own or rent these returnable/reusable assets. Efficiently utilizing this asset inventory and reducing its loss can drive improved bottom lines for your company.
