Gambettes dioxide is a cooperative created in 2008 whose mission is to decongest traffic in Brussels and turn the city into a cleaner and more sustainable environment. Through the use of bicycles, cargo bikes and a small van, they orchestrate the distribution throughout the city and its surroundings.
The goal is to “replace carbon dioxide with pedaling”, transforming last-mile deliveries and making cities increasingly green. In addition, they collaborate with projects such as Circularium or the Belgian Federation of Cycle Logistics.
Bike messaging is increasingly present in the last mile sector, especially in large cities, where traffic congestion highlights the need for sustainable means of transport. From a hub in the center of Brussels, Dioxyde works for more than 150 local clients, with an average of 850 monthly deliveries that, at peak times, can exceed 1,200. Their fleet of up to 25 riders works around the clock, delivering packages from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The increase in deliveries together with the need for tracking by its customers led Dioxyde to choose Vonzu as its technological partner.
The solution: Vonzu
Thanks to Vonzu, Dioxyde can offer a fully customizable tracking system to its customers – both B2B, through a real-time tracking platform, and B2C, with direct email communication on the status of each order. Delivery management is much more agile, offering a practical and easy-to-use mobile app to its riders, whose performance can be monitored in real time from the warehouse. Since the implementation of Vonzu, the volume of Dioxyde deliveries from Gambettes has doubled. Another important improvement is the digitization of the PODs. Dioxyde has drastically reduced paper consumption in its operations, being able to professionalize its delivery notes by having the client's signature and even images of the delivery.
Additionally, our SaaS has allowed the digitization of the entry and exit of merchandise in your warehouse, which has allowed an improvement in stock control. Without a doubt, sustainable transport companies are here to stay. Bicycle messaging is an increasingly important model in the last mile and, in the coming years, we will see how delivery on foot or by bike becomes an essential element in our streets. At Vonzu we are delighted to be able to collaborate with companies that, like us, work to promote cleaner and more environmentally friendly logistics.
