CASE STUDY

Logistics for Evian Volvic World

Danone has once again chosen Fret SNCF to transport Evian Volvic World mineral water in 2013—a total of 1.2 million pallets. The mission: ensure that bottles of Evian and Volvic are shipped successfully from the production plant to logistics providers in France and abroad. Fret SNCF will handle 5,000 pallets daily, for a total of 1,200 trains a year. Both of EVW’s plants are in remote locations and have very limited storage: to eliminate choke points, Fret SNCF has optimized the flow of shipments through more efficient use of delivery chains and extended operating hours.
