Rhenus Logistics ranks as one of the largest providers of integrated logistic processes in the Netherlands. The company belongs to the Rhenus Group, which is represented globally with more than 29,000 employees at over 600 locations. The Contract Logistics, Freight Logistics and Port Logistics Divisions stand for the management of complex supply chains and for innovative value-added services. In Germany and Switzerland, the Rhenus Alpina-Group is already relying on ATOSS Workforce Management for more than 11,000 employees. The ATOSS solution is now also being deployed at all facilities of the Contract Logistics Division in the Netherlands, including the new, ultra-modern logistics center in Tilburg. This elliptical, futuristic-looking building offers space for 45 loading ramps and 40,000 m² of storage space across a total area of 60,500 m². The objective was to optimize the working time management processes across all locations and to deploy a standard planning tool.
We succeeded in meeting all the locations’ demands made on digital workforce management with the ATOSS Logistics Solution, and there was no need for special programing. The company-wide Raet payroll system was seamlessly integrated into the solution. The working times of around 1,000 employees are now being recorded digitally and can be planned and scheduled at all times – with up to the minute information always to hand. Highly complex working time rules, special shift sequences and numerous required qualifications are incorporated into the planning process. The external employee pool is also being planned and managed via the ATOSS solution. This enables the company to respond flexibly and cost-effectively to the fluctuating order situations so typical of the logistics sector. Management is delighted with more efficient processes, a location-wide uniform planning system and enhanced transparency in all staff matters.
In a next step, employees will be actively involved in managing their own working times by way of intuitive ATOSS Self Services. And that’s one more expedient step towards Logistics 4.0 and a future-viable working environment.
