About ePiece Ltd
The name ePiece is inspired by the basis of our concept: Piece Level Identification.
ePiece Ltd specializes in providing consultancy and services for boosting the development of cargo logistics operations, especially in the aviation industry.
Our concept and approach focus on enabling piece-level handling of cargo shipments. We believe that smart automation, robotics and sensory-based learning systems already in use within other fields of logistics and industries will have a multitude of applications in future cargo facilities and operations.
As a company, ePiece Ltd stands right in the intersection of two global megatrends: eCommerce 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. The ePiece Ltd offering covers a wide range of consultancy and development services leading to enhancements in the practical cargo handling processes, systems and/or infrastructure.
We are consultants paving the way for our customer to take the required steps into the future. Thus, ePiece Ltd is not pushing its own technology or applications, but always bring forward the best-in-class solutions among available technologies in their field.
Right now, we are focused on fine-tuning our 3D simulation and analyses toolbox that captures the key characteristics of the customer’s operational processes and infrastructure, enabling our specialists to come up with proposals on the optimal approach and design for the development of case-specific future cargo logistics operations.
ePiece Ltd staff has what it takes to deliver our promise. We are a team of experts in today’s technologies that everybody knows are the way of the future: robotics, artificial intelligence, vision and sensory systems, Big Data, and above all, a wide range of contemporary software development tools and technologies.
ePiece Ltd was founded early 2017. Building on the decades of work and experience in aviation logistics and industrial automation, we saw the future potential of applying the concept of piece-level handling in air cargo logistics by utilization of existing 3rd-party technologies and approaches as the basis of our own design guidelines.
More importantly, we clearly foresaw that due to the special characteristics of the air cargo logistics industry, advanced solutions such as smart robotics, high-level logistics automation, and identification and verification systems ensuring the required reliability and accuracy needed in any piece-level operating automated handling process cannot be introduced into the cargo facilities just like that. Instead, a specific air cargo handling automation concept and approach is needed that contains all the phases and aspects required in the smooth and safe development process.
Thus, the ePiece Road map with its four key service components: Consultancy, Project Control, Implementation, and Change Management.
Our initial market research for the piece-level automation approach resulted in several potential high-profile projects for various cargo operations around the world. The first on-site customer studies reinforced our interpretation of the market need. After a series of discussions with seasoned veterans and consultants in the air cargo domain it was clear to the founders of ePiece Ltd that the time is right for collecting and combining the knowledge and experience required, resulting in the specification of an offering that meets the rising demand on piece-level cargo handling automation.
The founders of ePiece Ltd bring truly diversified backgrounds together. From industrial automation software technology, robotics, telecom, oil & gas, academia, aviation facility development and financing to cargo operations and management.
Together, they ensure a new perspective on the possibilities of enabling cost-efficient, state-of-the-art solutions where it is keenly needed.
