Tracking system tailored for the film industry

Skillweb : 02 July, 2008  (Application Story)
NFT Logistics to make use of mobile tracking and tracing system for the film distribution industry based on 2020ePOD by Skillweb
Skillweb has provided a full track and trace managed service to National Film Transport Logistics (NFT Logistics). Based on Skillweb's widely deployed 2020ePOD software that has been tailored to meet the demands of the film distribution industry, the system gives NFT Logistics full visibility of every film's location throughout the NFT Logistics distribution network. The unique system which enables NFT Logistics' customers to track their films, has enabled NFT Logistics to win new business against major competitors.

From the point at which the films are receipted into the business, through the cross-shipping network and then on to cinemas, NFT Logistics can track the consignments at every stage, providing a complete audit trail of the film as it moves between cinemas. This has the added benefit of minimising the need for films to go back to the distribution centres and so maximises the availability of the films.

Each NFT Logistics courier has an Intermec CN3 mobile computer which has built in barcode scanning, and is GPRS-enabled to pass film tracking and proof of delivery (POD) information back to head office in near real time. A GPS unit in the CN3 handheld device is used to capture the movements of the courier fleet, enabling the company to optimise fleet utilisation.

Simon Carter, National Logistics Development Manager at NFT Logistics commented, "Skillweb's solution has enabled us to provide a unique service to our customers. Skillweb was willing to listen to our requirements, and has worked with us to provide a solution that has not only helped us to win some significant business, but that will also support our business as we expand in the future."

Chris Wright, managing director and co-founder of Skillweb said, "Skillweb prides itself on being able to deliver innovative and yet practical working solutions to our customers tailored to meet their specific requirements. Being able to track each consignment throughout the distribution process enables our customers like NFT Logistics to provide a better service to their customers."
