For over 20 years Eurocash Grupa supports local shops in Poland to help them compete with big supermarkets.
It is certainly worthy mentioning that food losses represent approximately 20% in the global scale, while losses linked to the distribution sector are up to 5% in European Union (report provided by Fusions, Estimates of European food waste levels on 31.03.2016). Eurocash decided to equip every storage zone located in its warehouses: dry, fresh and frozen products.
Eurocash’s representatives emphasize that innovation investments are the right way to develop the company – implementation of latest technologies is compulsory to maintain the leading position on the market.
First tests of Blulog’s devices were carried out in 2014. Eurocash chose the RF data loggers and signed a contract for installation of 40 loggers to monitor different storage zones in a 25,000 square meters warehouse.
In 2015 Blulog equipped 5 other warehouses with about 60 temperature and humidity loggers.
Roll Up Your Sleeves—It’s Time to Scale Up!
Accordingly to the contract signed in August, 200 distribution points and warehouses will be equipped with Blulog’s devices all over Poland. The installed system, thanks to Ethernet/Wifi hubs and RF+NFC data loggers and a dedicated application, enables direct & real-time monitoring of the conditions in warehouses or distribution centers.
The implemented solution will allow to maintain high level of products’ quality and to minimize losses related to sudden increases and drops in temperature.
