Workplace safety in logistics

With over 2,000 employees, 550,000 sqm warehouse capacity, 9 inland barges, and 500 trucks, Van Moer Logistics is a leading logistics partner for customers across Europe.

Key deliverables
  • 300 forklifts
  • 10 locations
  • IoT solution
  • Driver Coaching

Forklift drivers carry great responsibility for their own safety as well as the safety of other drivers and workers. To sustainably decrease the risk for accidents and near misses, Van Moer Logistics chose to invest in a durable and real-time IoT forklift safety solution. This solution focuses on improving driving behavior to enhance driver and lone worker safety.

By combining Rombit’s Driver Behavior and Colission Avoidance, Van Moer Logistics made a clear investment in its employees. Besides ensuring a safer and more productive workplace, forklift drivers are supposed to sustainably improve their safety KPIs through individual coaching and instant feedback. 

The cooperation with Rombit ensures a safe and productive workplace with room to grow and learn. Together with the implementation of the collision avoidance, Van Moer Logistics has invested in an all-round solution for security.
