ECS GroupFor 2024, ECS Group’s priorities are set on the ongoing upskilling of its talented workforce, on expanding commercial partnerships, and on striving for digital perfection.

The group continues to empower its employees with the skills and qualifications required to deliver on customer requests within the rapidly changing air cargo market. It is also focused on expanding its global reach in terms of network and new customers, augmenting and promoting its unique Abilities portfolio, and developing new digital opportunities with CargoTech members.

ECS Group's strategy of expanding its geographical footprint through acquisitions reflects a deliberate approach to growth. "These strategic expansions into Africa, Central America, Asia and Europe are integral to our mission of serving our clients more effectively, wherever they are in the world," says Adrien Thominet, Executive Chairman of ECS Group. This expansion is about more than just increasing ECS Group's size; it's about deepening the commitment to providing local expertise backed by a global network, with a humble approach that recognizes the value of close client relationships”.

ECS Group's focus on its workforce is about recognizing the individual contributions that together make up the company's strength. "Investing in our team's development is fundamental, but we approach this with the understanding that personal growth and team empowerment directly impact the quality of service we provide to our clients," Thominet emphasizes. This approach underlines the importance ECS Group places on empowering the workforce, fostering an environment where every team member feels valued and equipped to meet client needs.

At the heart of ECS Group’s transformative approach is the "Augmented GSSA" concept, a strategic innovation launched three years ago that elevates the traditional GSA model. This concept rests on four foundational pillars: technology, sustainability, commercial strategies, and abilities. "Within this augmented framework, our Abilities portfolio represents a key pillar, showcasing our commitment to delivering beyond the basics of GSA services by offering tailored, cutting-edge outsourcing solutions," explains Thominet.
ECS Group is dedicated to expanding this particular pillar by developing new satellite roles, each directed by a leader who manages a specialized team. This structure ensures the Abilities are as targeted and client-centric as the rest of ECS Group's services, perfectly embodying the Augmented GSSA ethos. "By integrating these innovative Abilities into our service model, we’re not just responding to our clients’ current challenges; we’re anticipating their future needs." Thominet elaborates.

ECS Group's strategic embrace of digital innovation, especially through the partnership with CargoTech, marks a pivotal step towards redefining GSSA services with advanced digital solutions. This partnership has launched ECS Group into a leadership position in digital transformation within the GSSA sector, focusing on creating tech ecosystems that not only streamline operations but also enhance service transparency. Adrien Thominet, emphasizing the intent behind these innovations, states, "Our journey towards digital excellence is driven by a dedication to our clients' needs, ensuring each technological advancement directly benefits them." This mindset underscores ECS Group's approach to digital innovation as a means to deliver superior service, ensuring that every digital tool developed or adopted is with the client's best interest in mind.

Parallel to its digital initiatives, ECS Group is pioneering sustainability in the air freight industry. The goal to digitize 75% of booking and administrative processes is part of a broader ambition to merge operational efficiency with environmental responsibility. "Our digital transformation endeavors are deeply intertwined with our commitment to sustainability," Thominet explains, highlighting how digital advancements contribute to eco-friendly practices. The collaboration with CargoTech members—Wiremind, CargoAi, Rotate, and CharterSync—is instrumental in this regard, as it leads to the creation of digital tools that not only enhance operational transparency and efficiency but also support ECS Group's sustainability objectives. By focusing on digital innovation, ECS Group is not just optimizing its service offerings but is also taking significant steps towards a future where technology and sustainability go hand in hand, further solidifying its position as a forward-thinking leader in the global GSSA market.

ECS Group's vision for 2024 underscores a commitment to growth, digital innovation, and sustainability, all aimed at enhancing client satisfaction and environmental stewardship. Through strategic expansions and a focus on digital excellence, ECS Group is poised to lead the GSSA industry into a future where technology and client-centricity converge to create unmatched value.

DB Cargo locomotives A new generation of locomotives has been unveiled that will make DB Cargo's fleet more efficient and powerful in the future.

The “Vectron Dual Mode light” combines electric and diesel drive for adaptability in freight transportation. The modern hybrid locomotive can easily switch between electric and diesel operations. It helps avoid time-consuming shunting and maneuvering, and can be used flexibly, with or without overhead lines.

The Vectron Dual Mode light has been specially optimized for DB Cargo's operational requirements. Compared to a conventional Vectron Dual Mode, it is several tons lighter for even more efficient operations and provides access to branch lines and sidings with lower load capacities. This benefits single wagon loads, which will become faster and more efficient as the time to reclamp locomotives will be significantly reduced. In addition, the new generation of locomotives is pre-equipped for digital train operations in the future.

Sigrid Nikutta, DB Board Member for Freight Transport and head of DB Cargo: "This new generation of locomotives is important for DB Cargo. Many customers will benefit from this and – important for all of us – the environment is the big winner. If we operate this locomotive with green electricity and HVO diesel from cooking oils, we offer our customers an almost CO2-free supply chain from start to finish – without intermediate stops. All in all, the new generation of locomotives will make rail freight transport more efficient in the long term. And we can focus even more on the wishes and circumstances of our customers, because the new locomotive can be used under all conditions."

"Our state-of-the-art Vectron Dual Mode light reduces CO2 emissions, lowers maintenance efforts, and ensures greater flexibility in freight transportation,” says Michael Peter, CEO of Siemens Mobility. “On electrified sections of the line, it is purely electric, while on sections without overhead lines, it is possible to switch to conventional drive without changing locomotives. In this way, we are supporting DB Cargo in implementing climate-friendly supply chains right down to the 'last mile.' "Thanks to many digital technologies and equipment on board, such as shunting by remote control or the modern ETCS train control system, our locomotive is perfectly equipped for the future for DB Cargo."

DB has ordered 150 locomotives from Siemens Mobility in an initial order. With the use of the new dual-power locomotives, DB Cargo will save around 12 million liters of fuel and 25,000 tons of CO2 per year.

The first locomotives will be used around Europe's most modern marshalling yard in Halle (Saale) in Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony where DB Cargo's customers in the region will be the first to benefit.

DB Cargo's goal is to equip around 70 percent of its diesel locomotives with innovative drives by 2030.

DHL Coventry DHL Supply Chain today announces the opening of a new multi-user facility in Coventry.

The new building is entirely powered by renewable electricity and is the first operationally carbon neutral new build DHL site in the UK.

The building, which has been certified as BREEAM ‘Outstanding’, features an air source heat pump which provides all the warehouse and office heating and cooling requirements. This system will save approximately 135 tonnes of CO2 annually compared to a gas-powered system. Meanwhile, 3000 solar panels, supported by a custom onsite battery storage system developed by DHL’s in-house Digital Manufacturing team, provide over 40% of the site’s electricity, and has increased energy self-sufficiency on site. The site load has been intuitively configured to use stored electricity via the battery storage solution and shift peak demand to off-peak; whilst a real time Building Management System allows continuous visibility of the system’s overall performance. The site features 30 electric vehicle charging spaces and uses all-electric material handling equipment as well as a brand new fully electric tug.

With 900,000 square feet of operating space, the site has been configured for retail and consumer brands with omnichannel requirements thanks to high-capacity racking, a state-of-the-art pick to light system and three levels of mezzanine flooring for lightweight goods. Additional automation features include autonomous cleaning robots, a mobile wrapping robot, and a dimension system to automatically measure the dimensions and volume of parcels and pallets for faster categorisation and sorting.

Natalie Frow, Managing Director Ecommerce & Retail, DHL Supply Chain UK & Ireland said: “As a warehouse that is fully powered by renewable electricity, our new Coventry operation sets the standard for the industry. The highly considered design and fit-out is centred on our three priorities, our people, our customers, and our environment. We’ve created an operation that is not only highly efficient at meeting the demands of omni-channel brands, but it’s a positive space to be in. Since opening applications for vacancies, we’ve had more candidates than any other site which really shows that we’re meeting the needs of the modern workforce and I’m delighted to be welcoming so many new people into the DHL family.”

Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, said: “DHL Supply Chain’s new facility at Coventry Cross Point is certainly impressive, especially in terms of its eco credentials. That’s important because the private sector’s role will be mission critical in helping us achieve our ambitions to be a net zero region by 2041.

“Two other things stood out for me. First was the state-of-the-art service being provided to business, crucial given how the supply chain is such a competitive part of the business world. Second was how this new facility is yet another example of the high levels of inward investment we are seeing across the West Midlands right now, which is providing thousands of good quality jobs for local people.”

The building has been designed with employee wellbeing front and centre. It includes biophilic interior design features to improve employees’ connectivity to the natural environment through features such as side panel windows to bring in natural light, living walls and plants, as well as the use of sustainable, recycled, and natural materials throughout the building. The site also features a contemplation room, a quiet room and a live kitchen serving freshly cooked, healthy meals.

The facility has been built in line with DHL’s Carbon Neutral Building Framework and supports DHL’s Sustainability Roadmap. By the end of 2025, all of DHL Supply Chain’s warehouses will be operationally carbon neutral.

The new warehouse is part of the expansion of the DHL Fulfillment Network (DFN) in the UK.

HWA Modex 2024 HWArobotics showcased its high quality, reliable and efficient shuttle automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) technology at the Modex 2024 supply chain show, in Atlanta, Georgia (March 11-14).

The warehousing and logistics robot company has 20 years’ experience in developing and building shuttle robot systems and appeared at MODEX to introduce its comprehensive range of ASRS technology to a North American audience. HWArobotics is looking to expand its customer base in the region and develop new partnerships with distributors, following the successful deployment of its solutions by Canadian 3PL business Darwynn.

Designed to optimize logistics and supply chain management operations, four key HWArobotics product lines were launched in North America at Modex 2024, including three tote shuttles and one pallet shuttle, as well as associated cargo lifts, racking, and control software.

With system availability of more than 99%, excellent reliability, accuracy, and scalability, HWArobotics customizable shuttle robot systems deliver high throughput for a wide range of industry sectors and can be deployed fast to deliver results quickly.

HWArobotics’ warehouse automation experts were on hand at Booth C3885 at this year’s Modex to demonstrate the company’s products, which use high performance components from European suppliers, including Siemens (Germany), Voestalpine (Austria) and Hilti (Lichtenstein). The stand featured the SLS300, SLS400, and SLS600 series tote shuttles and the FPSS1500 pallet shuttle.

Capable of speeds of up to 4 m/s and acceleration of 2 m/s, the SLS300 has single machine capability of up to 120 boxes an hour.

Alongside the SLS300, HWArobotics also launched the SLS400 series variable tote shuttle system to the North American market. Offering strong compatibility and flexibility, the robot ASRS solution can mix and store containers of different sizes and can be configured to meet different efficiency requirements.

Reliable, economical and flexible, HWArobotics’ SLS600 3D tote shuttle system meets the needs of low-traffic, high-efficiency environments, such as spare parts, publishing, and ecommerce sites. It has excellent warehouse sharing capabilities as shuttles can realize any change of lane operation, while system capacity can be easily adjusted by increasing or decreasing the number of shuttles to meet local short-term demand peaks.

Also on display at MODEX 2024 was the highly-controllable FPSS1500 series pallet robot shuttle system designed for warehouses and distribution centers. The four-directional solution is an advanced ASRS designed for efficient pallet handling and storage, with global standard CE and UL certification. Specialized all-electric shuttle devices are capable of moving in four directions within the racking structure, providing enhanced versatility and operational efficiency.

The FPSS1500A is designed for room temperature environments across the manufacturing, distribution, food & beverage, and industrial sectors, and the FPSS1500B has been created specifically for cold storage, such as food, medicine and cold chain businesses. Using AI scheduling algorithms, it has achieved swarm intelligence within the PSR system to automatically adjust efficiency based on the number of vehicles and the rack structure.

Alongside its high performance shuttle devices, HWArobotics has a wide portfolio of goods lifts, racking and picking workstations (including robotic picking), for maximum performance and conveying capacity, high positioning accuracy, and sturdy, high tolerance storage.

HWArobotics General Manager, Sky Chen, explains, “We are delighted to have been at Modex 2024 demonstrating the exceptional range of benefits our tote and pallet shuttle ASRS solutions can deliver. Thank you to the many visitors who visited our stand to learn more about the possibilities our innovative automated warehousing and logistics technology offers to reduce the workload of personnel and deliver efficient and accurate order execution.

“At HWArobotics we are enormously proud of the 20 years’ of experience we have as a pioneer in the field of shuttle robot systems and our exceptional customer service. We have established a base in the US and are excited to enhance the competitiveness of North American businesses with our shuttle ASRS technology.

“The recent deployment of HWArobotics shuttle systems by Darwynn demonstrates how our technology can be up and running quickly and effectively, automating and optimizing logistics and storage processes. Our strong global customer base, including Bosch UAES, Hisense Hitachi, SONY, iCOOP, Shein, Joyson Safety Systems, JD.com and Forvia, is testament to the capabilities we offer to companies seeking intelligent upgrading of their warehouses and manufacturing plants.”
