• Saint Gobain Glass

Located in 40 countries with over 33,600 employees, Saint-Gobain's Flat Glass business produces, processes and markets glass products for three main markets: construction, transport and solar power.

Saint-Gobain Glass Logistics (SGGL) selected Quintiq to optimize its European transport flows.

All planning constraints, such as flexible opening hours, country and driving restrictions, trailer and stillage constraints, and ferry crossings, are taken into account automatically by Quintiq.

The Quintiq solution creates more visibility by calculating when each of the company's 500 full truck loads across Europe will become available again to allocate new trip legs.

Furthermore, the Quintiq solution helps planners to make more cost-effective planning decisions by showing the financial impact of any disturbance or deviation from the plan.
Transporting flat glass is a very unique and complex process, quite different to general cargo. Combining this complexity with lots of customer-specific requirements, country-specific constraints, and different cost structures per carrier together makes an extraordinarily complicated environment. With Quintiq we will achieve our goals while reducing transport costs.
