DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS
FOR AIR CARGO LOGISTICS
Stepping into the future
How do you combine higher speed, accuracy, quality, safety and information transparency with lower unit cost?
Impossible to solve? Not really.
The answer is a higher level of industrial automation.
One enriched with digital technology and piece-level information processing.
Many industries such as automobile manufacturers and high throughput distribution centers have embraced this approach,
and thus solved the riddle and yielded impressive operational and economics improvements.
The secret lies in feeding automation solutions with information that enables them to relieve us humans not only from dealing with heavy and unhealthy tasks, but also from tedious, repetitive monitoring and documenting tasks
as effortlessly as a steady supply of electricity can supply. This leaves the operator with the stamina
and alertness required for dealing with the exceptions and special cases experienced in every air cargo operation.
But how can you know that this will support your operation? We can ensure it. ePiece has a unique tool at its disposal; one that has never been employed in the air cargo industry before. It’s a graphic, 3D simulation tool that lets us try different scenarios throughout your operations. It will weigh in travel time for forklifts, pallet build up activity for humans, response times for ASRS, etc. We can even build in coffee breaks! All this without disrupting any operation, without spending a dime on unnecessary equipment. And you can run as many scenarios as you want; change of manpower, change of technology or change of process approach – you choose.
In the air cargo world, all this means we must migrate to piece-level information and ensure that our processes are based on it.
Only then can we truly bring our operations a notch higher in automation.
This is where ePiece Ltd enters the picture: we bring simplicity into the migration!
Based on on-site study & analysis, using the latest modeling, simulation and visualization tools, ePiece Ltd will tailor a Roadmap for the client.
This step-by-step method ensures a holistic approach as well securing ongoing economic viability while preparing the client operational readiness at each way-point.
As a company, ePiece Ltd stands right in the intersection of two global megatrends: e-commerce and the revolution of smart automation technology.
Our approach and solution, piece-level handling, has been developed in co-operation with the most respected organizations and seasoned veterans of the industry.
"We are waiting for the next innovation in logistics systems, such as robotic build-up of ULDs that paves the way for game changers like us to make a significant impact on terminal design and major operational development of the traditional cargo handling processes."
