Netherlands based Broekman Automotive, major car distributors handling up to 400,000 vehicles per annum, have confirmed the renewal of their contact with Vehnet Limited, market leading outbound finished vehicle logistics software specialists, for a further three years.
Broekman operates Vehnets iTracks system at their extensive Car Terminal in Rotterdam, optimising productivity through real time process and location control, automated yard and workshop management and intelligent back office administration.
iTracks has changed the way we work, confirms Wim Milder, Managing Director Broekman Corporate Division. We have moved from a pull to a push model, where we have much greater control over our processes. We deal with ten different brands and high vehicle volumes, which requires EDI interfacing with multiple customers. iTracks allows us to do this effectively, providing total visibility of our operation, improving efficiency and saving costs, ultimately enabling us to deliver better services to our customers.
He added, Vehnet has worked with us to configure a specialised system that meets our precise requirements, and we are about to embark on Phase II of the installation project, which will include further scheduling and capacity planning. The extension of our contract with the company is a measure of the confidence we have in Vehnet.
Commenting on behalf of Vehnet, Group Managing Director Steve Jones said, We are proud to work alongside Broekman Automotive to achieve an efficient, quality driven and responsive vehicle processing operation. Our sophisticated iTracks software solution, which is preconfigured and can be adapted rapidly by Vehnet to meet the specific operational needs and ambitions of our clients, has automated the many complex flows and processes at the Broekman Automotive Car Terminal and we look forward to enhancing the functionality to deliver increased performance and lower costs.
Vehnets iTracks system is extremely flexible, it operates on a volume based flat fee and all product upgrades are provided free of charge to Vehnet customers. In this regard, iTracks is able to support companies through the current downturn and as well as contributing to successful emergence from recession through facilitating efficiency and cost savings.
