MMH: What were your main takeaways from Promat 2023?
MMH: What are the three key market trends from your perspective?
Pongolini: The market trends we observed at Promat 2023 confirm the increasing demand for automated and sustainable supply chain solutions, especially in the CPG industries. This demand is driven by the need for greater efficiency, accuracy, and cost-effectiveness in material handling operations, as well as the growing concern for the environment.
At E80, we are at the forefront of this trend, having been one of the leaders in the design, development, and implementation of fully automated and energy-efficient material handling solutions for many years. Our focus on end-to-end integration and remote monitoring has allowed us to offer our customers a unique value proposition that optimizes their supply chain.
MMH: How is E80 responding to these market trends?
Pongolini: E80 Group is responding to market trends with end-to-end fully automated solutions, including integrated hardware and software. We have successfully implemented truck loading and unloading operations, as well as other automated solutions in factories and distribution centers in the US and Canada.
Data management is a fundamental element of our software development, and our use of lithium-ion battery-powered automatic vehicles has allowed us to reduce site activities and installation times, as well as energy and maintenance costs. Remote system monitoring has resulted in a significant decrease in the number of physical interventions at the customer's site, resolving 93% of issues remotely. Safety is another fundamental element of our offer, and our R&D is constantly looking for innovative solutions to ensure the maximum safety of our systems.
