Logistics Optimization in the Turkish Retail supply chain and how it affects ...The Turkish Economy

by DEISKO 30. Kasım 2012 09:05

As promised and announced earlier this week;

From this morning our reading / writing, as presented for the first time for Marmara University at Bakırköy Business Management Faculty on 27-11-2012 for Master Degree and MBA students, has become downloadable from our linked web-blog as Logistics - Optimization in the Turkish Retail supply chain - writing - reading.pdf (442,87 kb) . The resume of the reading 13 slides is downloadable as Logistics Optimization for the Retail 2012-2013 RESUME 27-11-2012.pdf (1,44 mb).

We recommend downloading both files.
Print out the writing-reading file, read our writing / reading on 4 single pages A4 paper or better for the environment 2 x double side printed A4’s.

While reading the text indicated on paper to which slide it belongs you play simultaneously the Resume file

Before you start a brief Introduction:
This reading-writing isn’t based on scientific facts neither doesn’t conclude any calculations justifying our statements, conclusions or results. However it is based on logical explanation, compare in systems and transferred knowledge.

The total reading contains 23 slides and is a conclusion we made of a study on 5 year DEISKO experiences. 05-12-2012 DEISKO celebrates its fifth anniversary.

During those 5 years we’ve seen changes in Turkey. We’ve seen changes on different kind of regulations like; Commercial Codes, Food transport and safety regulations. We saw and still see a huge grow in transport, logistics, supermarkets, public transport and many more things.
Turkey and its economy are growing despite the world crisis! It all goes so fast many companies don’t have time to really investigate new possibilities, “new” trends and innovations. Despite the effort we see that the retail logistics (partial supplies) stay beyond the other kinds of logistics.

To follow up with the development speed, there is no more time, energy, food to waste and earliest actions are required. We hope with this reading/writing, DEISKO does contribute to a sustainable, enduring Economic growth in Turkey.



Have an interesting reading time!



The Missing Link

by DEISKO 21. Kasım 2012 16:33

The last years Turkey is economical and industrial developing and keeping economic growth where other economies are in crisis or in recession. Interesting is to see the compassion and commitment of the Turkish people. Sad to see is that many of these people have to deploy and investigate in and from positions where they already have a burden on their shoulders to manage some operations in an organization. Too often (as example) a logistics manager has to search new ways to cut cost. Where he/she is fleet-manager, planner, crisis-manager (accidents and breakdown) the upper managements want to have these persons active as project-managers at the same time.

If we want something to happen we project this as the objective of a project. (Cost-reduction can be such an objective and can never happen soon enough) Most projects require a scan on financial, operative feasibility and after this some intensive studies on what, where and how the implication can be effective.

Depending on the objective a project can be finalized within just a few weeks up to some months and in some occasions some years. After this the product of the project is adopted into a system, production, production system, service or action, but a project is always temporarily and should be ended within the shortest time possible.

Projects and there objectives can be appointed to an employee, but may never block the daily activities, may not be a pressure to that employee, but still should be accomplished within the shortest time possible to stay competitive. If the project is about logistics (example: wide scale logistics optimization), it can be advised to appoint somebody with logistic skills, or objective specific knowledge next to the logistic manager as project manager. Give the project a name or a number and provide clear targets, deadlines & objectives. If internal knowledge (missing link) isn’t available bring it in from outside, but always connect the link to the closest related department.

FOOD TRANSPORT REFRIGERATION - What can be my fuel consumption reduction?

by DEISKO 10. Ekim 2012 13:00

“What if I could combine ambient, chilled and frozen in one shipment…. What would be my energy reduction on transport only?”: The logistic manager at the other end of the table ask me.

For a moment my thoughts:…“Will I start explaining first that the implication of the OLIVO BAC and ROLL products isn’t just a cost reduction on fuel, but also on many other variables as; time, labor, stock risks, stock investment, maintenance and some other factors in the logistic operations,  or shall I just calculate with him the reduction on fuel?”

Earlier this week I read an interesting abstract of a report/research from the Brunel University “Centre for Energy and Built Environment Research School of Engineering and Design” with the title “FOOD TRANSPORT REFRIGERATION” The report provides a review of food transport refrigeration and recent research into the development and application of alternative technologies to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from 2007 / 2008. An article on Eutectic and Cryogenic energy used in Food transport, as well the different vehicles sizes and their energy consumption.

Do you have an idea how many hours your cooling units are operating during the distribution operations of your organization: I ask the man at the other side. “Of course”: he said. You do transport / distribute frozen separated from chilled and or ambient, you mix with chilled products; I continued, but not waiting any answer continuing: If you do micro distribution (From one truck more than 3 delivery points) of frozen, chilled and ambient you need to get the best out of your fleet, you need to be as flexible as possible and at the same time you need to be light. Do you know that a fuel operated cooling unit consumes around 0,5 to 1 liter fuel per hour for chilled products and that for frozen (-25°C) the unit will consume as much as 2,5 to 3 liter per hour? In case you have frozen and chilled combined you will have a consumption of 2 to 2,5 liter per hour (forget the cost of partition walls and the inflexibility you’ll have by fixed walls). Do you have any idea how heavy the cooling unit self is besides the already heavy body of an insulated truck?

The article I read is dated… maybe, but the true recent figures will still come close. Yes… ever since 2008 cooling and freezing units might have become more economic in use and maybe became lighter. This had or has an advantage for shipments less than 3 delivery points (macro distributions), but the inflexibility, multiple door openings, you need for micro and micro/micro distribution is still a short coming.


For who is interested the link of the mentioned article:

Another research of the same Brunel University shows information to compare CO2 based cryogenic refrigeration systems for food transport refrigeration applications with conventional Diesel operated freeze and chill vehicles. Also this research we like to share as it shows that developments on cold logistics continue.  Meanwhile provides the article an idea on what usage of CO2 (SIBER SYSTEM) in OLIVO containers may even result in on the Carbon Footprint Reduction!

When we talk about maintaining the cold chain we have in fact two levels in which this takes place;

  1. Maintaining chilled or frozen by active chilling and or freezing conditions using chill or freeze units (motorized chilled or freezing)
  2. Maintaining chilled or frozen by inactive (neutral) chill and or freeze conditions by using eutectic or cryonic energy sources that support insulated units.  
    (example: OLIVO ATP – IR Products)

Sounds easy?

It's easy … as long as there are no such things as….; electricity blackouts, machine failure(s) and/or human failure(s).  For each of both groups the human failure(s) can have an impact on maintaining the environmental required condition(s) of the product that have to stay in between its limits. Electricity blackouts and machine/engine failure are most common a threat for only the first maintenance in group 1.

In any case that a cold chain link breaks, a product or group of products quality is in danger. In some situations this endangers the health of human. This is however more frequent the case than you may imagine. We’re talking risk on food, medicines/drugs. Each of these should be kept and transported between limits of temperature/humidity and sometimes even shock, lite or other environmental limits. How can you be sure that your products are secure? With conventional loggers and WiFi networks, cool-rooms (cells) are controlled on distance and responsible employees can take action when an alarm rings. These loggers/networks only secure the environments of rooms/cells, not your products! A human mistake (example: placing the products in a wrong environment/cell) is still not notified and conventional data loggers that are with the products will only tell at the final destination that harm / damage is done.

How can you control… your cells (cold rooms), and your products in one go and have an overview in one system, even on one screen?
In such a system you can decide where you want to be alarmed or just notified for;

  • Shipment arriving at new location 
  • A temperature drop or increase above or below limits for longer than X minutes.

In some kind of compare…; here you start having contact commuiciation with your locations and your products traveling in the country, or even around the world. Like your son or daughter back-packing and sending a tweet or post from his/her mobile with an update; “In Sydney now… everything is fine. Tomorrow flight to Melbourne with love @dad&mom”.
Now you receive in your “smartview” screen the update from your parcel/shipment; example: "arrived at Adana airport 13.30 cold-room facility. All is fine here." But then less personal, expressing in data something like; "“256565857” ADA 13.30 –
[02.00C – 08.00C] 05,42C=okay"

Depending on the shipment value, you may want to track, trace and monitor your shipment 24/7. Or you just want to be informed during storage and receive a log when departing or arriving from and to a location. Each way of monitoring has a value and each needs to have some adjustments to your company infrastructure. This is a small adjustment and takes 1 to 2 days each location which can be done by your personnel with plug and play equipment.

        Don’t just look smart by running hard, but be smart by using;

The shorter the chain the stronger, the longer… the less control you have on all links.

Do you have any idea how long the “cold” chain of each and every product you are selling, distributing (transporting) and or buying is?
This is a disadvantage for the strength of the cool chain and a challenge for those having to deal with extremes.
There are so many links involved, some under your own control, some by 3P2s and even 4P’s.

For each product there are many criteria that make maintaining the cool chain more or less difficult to control and exercise. One of these is the molecular density of a product (compare meat with cake, we don’t need to explain that meat has the highest molecular density here). The higher the density the easier the cold chain can be maintained. Interesting is that even within each product group different densities can be found. (Ice-Creams are produced in different flavors and with different additives.) With ice-cream I like to say that the more creamy the ice is, the lower the molecular density, the more difficult maintaining the cool chain. Maybe it is therefore that the ATP convention says that for ice-cream the minimum temperature required, for all kinds, -20°C at all points of the carrier during the complete distribution line. This (-20°C) is the coldest or also said highest critical level!

The other ATP classifications and regulations:
Frozen or quick (deep)-frozen fish, fish products, mollusks and crustaceans and all other
shocked - frozen foodstuffs counts that their temperature has to be colder than
: -18 °C

All other frozen foodstuffs with the exception of butter need to stay colder than
: -12 °C

Butter self (when frozen for shelf storage) may have a highest a
: -10 °C.

When supplying low volumes / small quantities from a relative big refrigerating truck, the risk that temperatures cannot be maintained over the complete supply tour is HIGH! This for sure is the case for supplies in regions where ambient temperatures exceed 30°C++. The more the truck has to open its doors (the more delivery points the more frequently this is), the more difficult it will be for the refrigerating units to bring down the load area temperature down to the required level. At the same time is valid: The less volume of products, the most air is moved = freezing capacity / efficiency lost.

“But in Turkey frozen product volumes are still very low! How can we increase the delivery volume so that less delivery points are visited a day, and still all stores receive their goods in the required quantities at the right time?” We hear you ask. We challenge you to play or make a puzzle with us. All pieces of the puzzle are in sight: within your operation, (maybe for a part in your logistics network) and within the assortment of products we offer. We know each piece of the puzzle by heart and where they may fit onto your operation-board. Let’s play together! This puzzle is the first puzzle you can earn money with! And the best part of this game: There isn’t one winner, there are more…. And even better there is no looser at all!

If we lay all the pieces on the right place, the (financial / economical / social / environmental / sustainability) picture becomes clear; 
We all will be reducing cost and therewith the prices of frozen and even chilled products. (Result = More people will be able to buy frozen products = required volumes and therewith Turn-over increases). We’ll be able to reduce the traffic density. (Traffic has to keep running, as this is the engine for the economy = less traffic jams the better running economy in crowded places). These are only 2 of many more arguments we can mention to play the game / puzzle with us!

The pieces of the puzzle are the substitutes for the weakest links on the board of cold logistics and are the pieces to optimize your “cold” logistics!
