Innovation project: Mobile E-Hub
A logistical system for everyone
Mobile E-Hub – the innovative transport solution: The Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting rapid developments in e-commerce pose new challenges for conventional logistics and supply chain systems. In particular, on-demand deliveries of important spare parts, medical products or perishable goods are often associated with high transport costs.
In order to provide municipalities, traders and freight forwarders with new efficient solutions in logistics and supply chain management, we are developing an innovative drone transport system in cooperation with a consortium of medium-sized companies, start-ups and scientists.
The logistics system connects transport boxes over carrier systems to vehicles for personal mobility – the mobile e-hubs. At intelligent picking stations, the drones autonomously take over our transport-optimised boxes. This system has the potential to establish a decentralised structure of regional warehouses (logistics hubs) and pick-up stations in Germany. In addition, it avoids additional traffic from freight forwarders and delivery services on the last mile.
In order to offer users the best possible conditions, our concept allows the application of pay-per-use models.
The vision of our Mobile E-Hub project is to implement a logistics system optimised for e-commerce. Thereby, sustainability, flexibility and efficiency are the main focus.
