Combined expertise and technology enable Tosca to benefit and to provide their end customers with reliable end-to-end traceability for reusable plastic containers (RPCs), improving stock accuracy between all Tosca maintenance sites in Europe.
Mojix and Coriel to provide RPC visibility
Los Angeles, January 2023 – Mojix, a global leader in item-level intelligence solutions for supply chains, and Coriel, a specialist systems integrator focused on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Internet of Things (IoT), and Industry 4.0 solutions, were chosen by Tosca to provide a SaaS-based traceability solution that enables real-time, item-level visibility across all their sites in Europe. Tosca is a global leader in reusable container solutions for the food industry. The company has developed innovative solutions that deliver supply chain improvement and measurable value for suppliers, growers, and retailers.
Tosca has always been at the forefront of the reusable revolution. As one of the world leaders in RPCs and plastic pallets, Tosca was looking for an innovative traceability solution that would give it full visibility of its global pool of reusable pallets and containers. Achieving full observability of Tosca’s asset pool would have many benefits for them. First, as Tosca’s mission is to eliminate waste at every turn, this would further reduce the waste caused by asset loss, theft, and damage.
A clear view of usable and shippable RPC inventory at sites across Europe
Second, it would enable Tosca to repair damaged assets and return them to the pool more quickly. And finally, it would drive asset management optimization resulting in increased rotations and avoiding shortages or overstocks in critical locations. Tosca needed a clear view of its inventory of usable and shippable assets for end customers across all their sites in Europe, a visibility they can now share with their clients.
Mojix and Coriel were able to provide Tosca with a returnable asset (RTIM) traceability solution giving them a global view: real-time item visibility accuracy superior to 99%, increased asset rotation with fewer shortages and overstocks, labor optimization to free workers for higher value-added tasks, and ultimately, a significant improvement in their quality of service to customers.
“Handling millions of items and hundreds of thousands of containers per day, there is tangible value in our being able to track our reusable containers in real-time. All the supply chain stakeholders, logisticians, transporters, wholesalers, brands, and manufacturers can rest assured that the data is accurate. This enables a clear chain of custody that sets the stage for trusting relationships,” said Raf Fonteyn, Tosca Director of Technology, EMEA.
Mojix item-level intelligence solutions are designed around the idea that any given product in a supply chain can be serialized with a unique digital identity. This provides a powerful foundation for enabling total product lifecycle visibility: track-and-trace from origin and manufacturing through to distribution centers, stores, and sometimes even after sale. Retailers will know where their items are, where they’re coming from, which business process they’ve been through, and where they’re supposed to go next. Each time an item’s status changes, Mojix collects that event data and streams it into the ytem™ platform and processes it along a unique lifecycle data model, allowing users to know, in real-time, the status and history of any item.
