Major players are currently taking part in the greenest international fair of the year, LETExpo, promoting increased sustainable development of intermodal transport and innovative growth of integrated logistics.
The fair, at the Verona exhibition centre in Italy, opened on Wednesday and ends tomorrow. Organised by ALIS (Logistics Association of Sustainable Intermodality), which has 1,800 members, it is one of the largest such specialised fairs in Europe.
HandsOn Systems, who are members of ALIS, are focusing on three areas on its stand at the fair:
- fleet management and GPS tracking solutions;
- RFID solutions for the smart warehouse and smart factory concept; and
- IoT solutions, including parking temperature monitoring, parking sensors and waste level monitoring.
“Our participation at LETExpo was entirely a HandsOn Systems initiative,” CEO Geoffrey Cutajar said. “We are seeking both direct clients and to build a network of partners (installers and resellers) throughout Italy. The first two days have gone very well.
“The idea is also to explore what there is in the market. Despite being a small company that is just beginning, we have a lot of potential. When we compare our systems with our competitors, we can compete really well and win from a product offering, from a service offering (and) from being able to offer flexibility in terms of how we can adapt the products.”
As an example, Mr Farrugia said something that is doing well, which is not available there, is the solar tracker. Many competitors in tracking do not offer RFID solutions, he said, whereas HandsOn Systems do. “So, we have quite a unique positioning. We’re trying to find the niche markets that we think can make a difference.”
