Cebeo: Pioneering Distribution in Electrical Materials

Cebeo has a well-established reputation in the distribution of electrical materials is. Their expertise extends across various sectors, including residential, tertiary, and industrial, where they provide a wide range of solutions and technical services. The company is renowned for its commitment to innovation and excellence in all aspects of its operations.

Revolutionizing Yard Management: Addressing Crucial Issues

Cebeo faced several pivotal challenges at its new Doornik site, which Peripass’s solutions were tailor-made to address:

  • Visibility: The need for visibility concerning arrivals, driver registration, and current capacity on the site.
  • Communication: Preventing communication problems due to language barriers. More and more truck drivers have little to no understanding of English or Dutch.
  • Manual Workflows: A part of the processes relies on manual registration for both truck drivers and employees. Increasing the risk of errors and significantly slowing down throughput.
  • Dispatching: The need for automated dispatching from a central gatehouse. So that all manual processes can be automated. The partnership with Streamliner and Peripass aims to fully cover this aspect.
  • Greenfield Site: The Doornik site is a greenfield project, representing a significant investment in automation.

Two Key Features for Enhanced Yard Management

Peripass’s integration at Cebeo’s Doornik site focuses on two key features to optimize yard management:

  • Self-Service Access: The introduction of self-service kiosks at the site’s entrance offers an efficient alternative to traditional reception processes.
  • The Yard Control Tower: The Yard Control Tower provides real-time insights into yard operations, enhancing monitoring of capacity, arrivals, and departures. This central hub streamlines communication and coordination.

Why Cebeo Chose Peripass

Several key reasons led Cebeo to choose Peripass as its partner:

Driver Communication: Seamless communication with truck drivers was essential for Cebeo, and Peripass’s solutions effectively addressed this challenge.

Integration with Other Software: The ability to integrate Peripass with other software, such as Streamliner (ERP), made the partnership an ideal fit for Cebeo.
