Emons Group

Efficient and sustainable logistics


Background

Emons group is a solid, privately owned group of companies, which has existed for over 70 years. The Emons Group is a niche player in the European transport market and focuses on innovative and sustainable transport solutions with the aim to reduce the total logistics costs. The main brands on the market are the following:

  • Van Huët Glass Logistics specializes in transporting bulk glass of large size;
  • 2WIN / Emons Cargo specializes in dual charging concept;
  • Hofmans specialist champost logistics;
  • Meierling GmbH Anhänger- und Fahrzeugbau specializes in the construction of ultra-light aluminum trailers.

As a result of its growth, Emons needed a new software environment for its planning activities. The Quintiq software was deployed across all of its transport divisions and active operations in European countries.


Solutions

Emons will deploy the Quintiq software in all its transport divisions. In addition, the software will be integrated with all company’s other subsystems used to control the various business divisions in the European countries in which Emons is active. The Quintiq planning software will take up a central role in this integrated solution.

The Quintiq software sets itself apart from other planning solutions by its native intelligence. During the implementation, all the relevant data is entered into the system, varying from employees and their specific know-how and skills, up to available equipment, legislation and employee preferences. On the basis of this data the planners can create their plans. The consequences of possible disruptions are calculated immediately, after which the planner is able to take action. In this way, Quintiq contributes to improved efficiency and a better use of people and resources.


After a thorough analysis of possible software packages, we decided on a Quintiq planning solution. Important reasons were the ability to customize the software and Quintiq expertise in the transport sector. The Emons Group is active in very specific markets. This requires an extremely flexible planning, and we need very flexible planning software that can easily be customized to our wishes and requirements.

In addition, various well known colleague companies have successfully implemented the Quintiq software. These positive references were also an important reason for us to select Quintiq.
