Univar Solutions creates digital supply chain advantage
Univar Solutions has created a digital supply chain advantage with the help of secure industrial IOT platform specialist MYNXG. The Company will leverage MYNXG’s expertise to connect critical operating technology (OT) to global asset control rooms with a focus on digitising and automating manual supply chain processes.
Through this approach Univar Solutions expects to remove redundancies and inefficiencies, while using data as a strategic asset to create an unmatched digital supply chain advantage for employees, customers, and suppliers across the globe.
"We’re very excited about adding this technology and creating a secure digital platform approach for all our supply chain operations,” said Dirk Goedert, Vice-President Strategic Development for Univar Solutions. “This project is expected to be the catalyst to help further identify simplification opportunities and open up doors to new digital services for our customers and suppliers.”
Bernd Moeller, MYNXG’s CEO and CTO said: "MYNGX’s unique secure industrial OT technology allows customers to bypass the typical automation pyramid, radically reducing deployment cost and time. We can trigger business processes at the customer directly from the devices, for example when a bulk tank is getting filled. Our patented blockchain technology creates audit trails for critical events like machine alarms or assets leaving the site.”
"Our operational teams are very much focused on serving our customers better every single day,” added Folkert Tjebbes, Vice President of Supply Chain and Operations EMEA for Univar Solutions. “Using this secure digital supply chain platform allows us to remove paper-based processes and enable real-time decisions from the moment a truck enters our site to the point of delivery at our customers.”
