[Image 1:×695.png] Introduction background
There was a long waiting time of more than 2 hours, but there was no way to accurately grasp the issues at all distribution centers. When a client told us that there was a long waiting period for delivery vehicles at the distribution center, Sugi Pharmacy did not have the means to accurately grasp the facts. Waiting times can only be ascertained from reports from drivers via business partners, so it is necessary to accurately grasp the facts and determine the essence of the problem, such as whether the center is making the driver wait or the vehicle arrives early. was there.
Implementation results
Consolidate information from all centers and build a system that can be managed and improved with unified KPIs
Sugi Pharmacy has set 5 KPIs from the perspectives of “quality” and “efficiency.” With the introduction of MOVO Berth, a system has been put in place to manage and improve the quality of waiting vehicles (the ratio of waiting vehicles (number) for 30 minutes or more), which is one of the KPIs. In addition, by introducing MOVO Berth to all distribution centers, operations have been standardized, making it easier to spread examples of improvements at one center to other centers.
0.34% of vehicles waiting for 30 minutes or more
Regarding the waiting status of the two logistics centers that were introduced for the first time, about 19% of the total number of vehicles were waiting for more than 2 hours at the Obu center, and about 13% at the Toyokawa center. They decreased to 2.5% and 0.4% respectively. For fiscal 2022 (March 2022 to February 2023), a KPI will be set for “waiting for at least 30 minutes.” There were 128,250 vehicles arriving at all centers, of which 440 vehicles were waiting for more than 30 minutes, or 0.34%.
Appropriate staff allocation for receiving work
Before introducing MOVO Berth, we were able to ascertain the total amount of parcels arriving that day, but not the number of vehicles. With the introduction of MOVO Berth, it became possible to grasp the number of vehicles arriving today and their entry time in the morning, making it possible to assign personnel with consideration for overtime schedules and skills.
