La Poste: improving the traceability of dispatching containers

Amongst the activities of the La Poste Group is the distribution of the press, i.e. the daily distribution of newspapers and magazines to their subscribers nationwide. To do this La Poste works with about fifty mailing services which deal with the addressing operations upstream of distribution. The logistics exchanges between La Poste and the mailing services take place using high capacity plastic containers, with a unit cost close to 400 Euros.

Problem: numerous containers belonging to La Poste were lost each year by the mailing services.

What is the solution?

The solution implemented by UBI Solutions has made it possible to trace the containers, to know exactly which mailing service has the containers, therefore making it possible to invoice for a container that is not returned to La Poste, if necessary. This tracking of the containers has enabled significant savings to be made, by limiting losses and also by reducing container stocks.
