Using solar energy cleverly
A new fuel conservation technology based on light-weight and durable photovoltaic modules mounted on commercial vehicles and trailers. By adding solar technology to harness the sun’s energy Trailar reduces the impact of each vehicle’s journey. Once fitted, the low-cost electricity generators help to recharge the vehicle’s on-board battery, thereby reducing alternator load and ultimately fuel consumption.
Industry 4.0 is here. Robotics in manufacturing and logistics is forecasted to grow at an accelerated pace over the coming years and many companies cannot keep pace with disruptive new technologies. Many have an engineering skills gap and face a productivity challenge.
The Digital Manufacturing Team has vast experience in Supply Chain and in understanding how difficult and expensive it is to piece together effective solutions, and solutions involve taking risk on capital investment. Very few integration companies offer all the services required and don’t always have relevant operations experience. DMS provides these services including flexible, zero-capital solutions to increase productivity and close the skills gap for customers.
XPL targets the logistics industry with services and products related to the digitalization of supply chain processes and the management of supply chain networks.
