During the Automotive Logistics Europe Conference, GEFCO presented, along with seven other achievements, an innovative car transportation solution, My Car Is There, which was awarded Innovation Leader.
My Car Is There (MCIT) allows a customer to organize the door-to-door transport of a single car, via a smart phone application. The technology relies on a digital platform solution to serve the business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) market for the transport of individual cars. In just a few clicks, MCIT technology allows a car owner to organize the pick-up and delivery of a car to any destination with real-time track and trace convenience.
GEFCO’s IT department and Warehouse activity launched a joint initiative to test IoT technology for locating boxes and pallets in real time all over the world. The technical challenge was to equip 100 boxes with IoT technology to be able to locate them on a map in the cloud and easily find them on site. This was an excellent project for experimenting and learning in collaboration with GEFCO’s warehousing teams. GEFCO is in the process of researching business models for industrializing the solution.
