ISEL, at the University of Le Havre and Renault’s Environmental Division are working with Barloworld Supply Chain Software (SCS) to help minimise cost and reduce carbon footprint, with CAST software.

CAST is used to evaluate and identify the optimal supply chain configuration and to calculate the total cost to market, leading to cost savings and service improvements.

ISEL, School of Logistics (graduate) of the University of Le Havre in France is currently working on the VALVER project, which was initiated by Renault in December 2009.

The project was established in response to the legal constraints regarding the recycling of vehicles and raw materials, according to new French policies.

“The supply chain surrounding the glass recycling operation at Renault, required reorganisation and reconfiguration in order to become fully optimised, whilst fitting within various time, legal and environmental constraints,” explains Christophe Bisiaux, logistics project manager at ISEL Le Havre.

“To achieve this, we have selected CAST software, which has been developed by Barloworld to assist with supply chain modelling, network design and optimisation,” he added.

Ewan French, chief operating officer at Barloworld Supply Chain Software explains: “By using CAST software as a decision tool to model the network, ISEL has been able to identify supply chain scenarios that enable the reduction of both cost and carbon emissions.”
