Background

DANX, part of DANX Carousel Group is a regional and specialised logistics provider operating a network of trunk and last mile deliveries to over 500 locations every night. Established in the 1990s with a focus on in-night distribution, which is a service that requires very high standards in quality and reliability, they offer a unique focus on logistics solutions for the Baltics and the Nordic region. We offered DANX a practical AI computer vision solution to improve fill rate optimisation and support their route and capacity planning.

Challenge

The demands of the Day And Night Xpress service with a focus on in-night distribution creates a very dynamic route network which needs careful supervision and management. Maintaining surveillance on every load at every distribution point is a serious challenge and requires every haulage vehicle to achieve an optimal load to ensure maximum efficiencies and to achieve client satisfaction with through the night deliveries.

Solution

Collaborating with Sentispec, DANX deployed the innovative Sentispec Inspector — an
AI-powered fill rate optimization vision solution. This technology captures real-time fill rates, providing crucial data to the route planning office for enhancing route schedules. The Sentispec Inspector uses a mobile app to photograph trailers post-loading, automatically sending this data to site managers and route planners.

Site Managers utilize this computer vision data to refine load and route planning for future trips. The AI technology interprets the imagery to provide actionable insights on fill rates for each lorry, enabling route optimization based on actual data. Furthermore, the system alerts planners if routes fall short of specified quotas, thereby maintaining optimal route efficiency and minimizing inefficient or unnecessary trips.

«The Sentispec Inspector fill rate optimisation system helps me a lot in route planning and saves me a lot of time every day.»

Site Manager, DANX

«Using the Fill Rate Optimisation system, we have discovered several valuable optimisation potentials already in the first few months.»
