Shipping company Sea Swift uses a Signet customised tape solution to minimise freight identification mix-ups and bring incident rates to zero.
Sea Swift is a vital supply chain for many regions and
islands off the Northern part of Australia, which has limited access to the
mainland. At nearly 40 years old, Sea Swift is Australia’s largest
privately-owned shipping company. Providing passenger and shipping services
which include freight, project logistics, mother-shipping, engineering, defence
and fuel services.
Darwin depot is the primary receiving point in the NT. Freight is received,
sorted, packed and loaded here for transport, usually filling and dispatching
200 20-foot shipping containers each week.
The capacity of goods on board the vessels is high, and their customers are remote. Freight needs to be highly visual and accurately labelled so that it arrives correctly the first time. Sea Swift uses a number of Signet products to do this, including Sigtags and Custom Printed Tape.
Sea Swift partnered with Signet and implemented a custom tape solution to differentiate freezer and refrigerator freight. Since the implementation, Sea Swift has eliminated incidents over a two-year period.
“Our biggest priority is meeting the customer’s expectations, so this is a great solution to prevent issues.” —Justin Tranter, Sea Swift Operations Manager NT.
Signet’s Custom Tape is now used to distinguish between frozen and chilled pallets, making it easier for Sea Swift staff and customers at the receiving end to identify what needs to go into the fridge or freezer transport vehicles. After implementing the solution, Sea Swift has seen zero cold freight allocation incidents.
Sea Swift also use Signet’s weatherproof Sigtags to identify customer details on cars, boats, machinery and keys. Usually attached to freight exposed to the elements, this product has proved to be 100% weather resistant compared to their previous product. Operators can trust the Sigtag will not only still be on the freight when it arrives to the customer, but it will be fully legible, avoiding potential inaccuracies caused by lost tags and re-manifestation.
Signet helps Sea Swift remain accurate and streamlined with visual supply chain products.
