Truck congestions and logistics hurdles

Iceco Group faced a significant issue with trucks queuing up at their premises, causing operational delays and inefficiencies. The lack of a structured system for managing daily traffic flow led to overcrowding and communication bottlenecks. They were grappling with several challenges that were affecting their daily operations:

  • Long queues of trucks causing delays
  • Lack of a structured system for managing daily traffic
  • Overcrowding at different times of the day
  • Communication bottlenecks affecting efficiency

These issues were more than just operational hiccups; they were critical problems that needed immediate solutions, especially for a company involved in food production.
