WASP Wood logistic
Based on modern cloud technology, the WASP logistics platform seeks to interlink established software solutions with newly developed modules.
The forestry and timber industry is one of the key industries. The market potential of timber resources increases due to its quality being a renewable and sustainable raw material. There is a large potential for cost reduction by optimising the logistics from forest to factory (wood logistics).
lnspired by the cluster initiative Forest and Wood in Bavaria, the German company WASP-Logistik GmbH develops and provides based on cloud technology a modular wood logistics platform.
On WASP's wood logistics platform, all those involved in the forest and timber supply chain will gain an extended planning horizon they can use to optimise the supply chain across companies and control it by linking existing solutions. It will thus be possible to work in a more economical, future-oriented way. The added value the platform provides will benefit small and midsize enterprises in particular - forwarding agencies, forest companies, and small sawmills, for example. Other products currently available on the market cannot make the same claim.
Based on modern cloud technology, the WASP logistics platform seeks to interlink established software solutions with newly developed modules. It uses geodata to register and manage wood piles, and satellite navigation is integrated for use in timber transport. Wood piles can also be captured by cameras, automatically geocoded, and transferred to the platform.
In addition, the platform makes it possible to handle dispatching with support for GPS (and in the future, Galileo) signals by retrieving vehicles' geocoordinates in real-time using mobile receivers, transferring them to the platform, and displaying positions and locations on a map. Integrated online map services like Navlog, OpenStreetMap (OSM), ArcGIS (ESRI), and Google Maps are also featured.
