Process innovations and optimizations through RFID and the latest tracking technologies. Monitoring of critical goods, materials, documents and work processes. We create full transparency in processes, visualize KPIs and thus enable smart process management in logistics, production, healthcare, medicine and service industries.

Due to the increasing demand for road freight transport, which is additionally fueled and accelerated by COVID-19, efficient supply chains are the key to meeting customer requirements. However, the supply chains are long, fragmented and often inflexible to short-term changes. While the digitization and introduction of new technologies has steadily increased in the processes in warehouses, other processes in warehouses such as scheduling and transport planning have not made the same progress. Managing the collection and return of cargo in warehouses is slow, manual, and inefficient. Warehouses and shippers waste hours per shipment waiting, paying heavy fines, and losing potential business. The SaaS solution from byways offers a fully automated planning system for logistics and supply chain management, connects logistics centers and forwarders / transporters. Cost savings and increase in warehouse and vehicle efficiency with the help of AI.

Tec4med is the leading German provider of smart and digital supply chain solutions.
With Tec4Cloud, Tec4med is a leading provider of open logistics platforms. Tec4Cloud integrates predictive analytics, lane risk profiling and AI functionalities in order to monitor supply chains fully automated end-to-end.
With its IoT products, the SmartHub / Beacon system, Tec4med is expanding its product portfolio with intelligent and digital tracking hardware that fits perfectly into the Tec4Cloud ecosystem. As a gateway logger system, the system offers real-time monitoring of the supply chain of goods and systems and guarantees full transparency of supply chains worldwide.

The is a neutral data platform that enables companies to digitize and visualize their global supply chains of goods.
Our core belief: Networks and ecosystems are the next step to successfully master the industry-wide digitization.
Our goal: We improve structurally the basic data exchange between supply chain partners and generate complete transparency and visibility along the supply chain.
With a first-class connectivity solution, it is possible to switch flexibly from one connection to each other and integrate new supply chain partners via plug-and-play. Furthermore a logistics marketplace offers a third-party ecosystem for digital services.

With their AI solution, Manual Process Intelligence (MPI), an automatic and anonymous analysis of manual work processes is possible. The MPI of MotionMiners equips employees in various areas of activity with mobile sensors and a smartphone. Localization is carried out anonymously via mobile sensors (wearables) and small radio transmitters (beacons). The beacons placed in the relevant storage areas, in conjunction with the smartphone, serve to locate the employees. The individual work steps are automatically reconstructed from the process data and made available for further analysis. The data collected in this way is analyzed with a highly specialized artificial intelligence, the "MotionMiners-AI", which processes all data with a pattern recognition solution based on machine learning. For this purpose, the movements, postures and also the work situation are detected and assigned to the tasks and regions in the work process.

The motion detection catalog currently includes more than 50 different activities, such as walking, waiting times per region / machine, picking, handling times per shelf, but also healthy and unhealthy stooping. The use of MPI is intended to enable holistic analysis and optimization of process efficiency and the recognition of ergonomic risks in production and logistics. The customer receives a full range of measurement equipment and access to an analysis dashboard. The measurable savings in previous projects were reportedly between 10 and 15 percent with peaks at 40 percent.

ESA BIC Incubatee (European Space Agency Business Incubation Centre).

The neutral air cargo platform. Air freight made more sustainable and economical.

We are a B2B platform that brings together freight forwarders and airlines for freight and routes. We make booking a route that includes multiple flights from different airlines as easy as booking an Uber. Freight forwarders get safe routes and a competitive price on a single AWB. Every airline can make profits with freight.

Julien Cote, CEO & Co-Founder of Wakeo is one of the Forbes 30 under 30.
Wakeo is a SaaS platform to bring real-time visibility on B2B transport flows (sea, air, road). They help shippers and forwarders improve customer experience and optimize operations. They do this by consolidating multiple transport partners into a central Saas platform to bring real-time visibility on all transport flows. They use satellite data and they connect to trucks embedded GPS & IoT systems. Through machine learning, they adjust dates of arrival on a dynamic basis and send alerts to operational teams for them to anticipate. They turn the Supply chain from reactive to predictive.

ThroughPut is the pioneer of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) supply chain that enables companies to identify, prioritize, and eliminate dynamic operational bottlenecks in real time by using their existing data and teams to solve their current problems and save millions of dollars, who are up to 600 times faster than experts in continuous improvement. ThroughPut's systems were developed by leading Fortune 500 geomarket logistic heads as well as Silicon Valley Analytics and Industrial IOT experts with decades of experience in the field.

With the Auto-ID radio sensor technology - the so-called SMART TAGs - developed by conbee GmbH, information about the location, status and movement is provided in real time. Companies can use it to optimize their processes, e.g. Logistics processes across the entire supply chain (SCM), improve storage concepts, save resources. Clear identification, localization in real time (real-time) and provision of further parameters are an important aspect of Industry 4.0. conbee accompanies its customers competently and in partnership from the first consultation to the implementation of the projects.
