Michelin, Sigfox France and Argon Consulting announced the launch of a new disruptive solution for the tracking of sea-freight containers in real-time based on Sigfox’s technology and global network. Michelin, the world-leading tire manufacturer, has actively participated in the development of this solution for the past 12 months and is an early-adopter of this solution, already in use on some of their critical inter-continental flows.
This innovative, easy-to-deploy and affordable solution provides freighters with a real-time geolocation service of their containers from the initial warehouse to the final point of delivery. It will bring operational value by reducing the lead-times, providing alerts about delays and ensuring appropriate transport conditions. Ultimately, it will enable the shippers to develop new services for their clients and potentially expand their business.
Argon Consulting, an independent consulting firm and the leader in operations transformation in France, and Crimson & Co, a global management consultancy that specialises in the supply chain, are delighted to announce that they are merging. The company will bring together the extensive expertise of Argon Consulting and the global reach of Crimson & Co to establish a new global group with more than 230 consultants in 6 offices across the world (Paris, London, Atlanta, Singapore, Melbourne and Mumbai).
Given the increasing need for agility, and with the manufacturing organization focused on costs, conflicts can arise in Manufacturing / Supply chain relations. Most companies have therefore concluded that Manufacturing Excellence should be realized in a “more customer-oriented” factory, with a better balance between cost and agility.
