A DIGITAL SOLUTION IMPROVING THE EFFICIENCY OF VARO

VARO Energy needed a comprehensive solution that would help the business run more smoothly through the management of its rail fleet. Up until this point, roughly 1,500 railcars were manually planned allowing for no visual control or clear arrival times.

With VARO's position in the market, a sophisticated digital solution was required to improve visibility and management of their rail fleet, while ensuring the highest safety standards.

VARO Energy

Supplying fuel to customers is at the core of VARO’s business; 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. VARO operates through integrated, flexible fuel value chains producing and marketing a wide variety of oil products via a network of integrated downstream assets located across Germany, Switzerland, France, and Benelux.

VARO is known for providing high quality oil products for everyday use through a reliable fuel depot infrastructure. To maintain this position in the market, a sophisticated digital solution was required to improve visibility and management of VARO’s rail fleet, whilst ensuring the highest safety standards.

Customer Challenge

VARO rented around 1,500 railcars and all planning was manually done with no simple overview of the rail fleet.

This caused issues such as:

  • No electrical or visual control
  • Waste of manpower because of unclear railcar arrival times
  • No available metrics on how efficiently the fleet was managed
  • Unclear maintenance schedules due to lack of oversight and tracking

Why VARO Chose Redfaire International

The team at VARO chose Redfaire International and their DACH region partner FSS due to their IoT experience and proven global solutions within the JD Edwards ecosystem.


VARO and the team collaborated together to design a sophisticated and robust solution for VARO’s needs. This included extending the Equipment Master with railcard attributes, getting the GPS data of railcars from different rental railcar companies into JD Edwards, geofencing BSFN algorithm within JD Edwards, building UX OnePage with watchlist and map (Alert / Analysis / Act) and linking railcars to sales orders.

It may seem like science fiction, but there are plenty of opportunities for digital transformation within your organisation, you just need the right partner to help you.

Brian McInerney, Director, Redfaire International

Solution

The results of this collaboration are:

• In-depth view of the whole fleet
• Current position can be directly viewed from the sales order
• Depots notified when railcars are approaching
• More effective and efficient use of resources
