DeepPack’s journey at Transport Logistic 2023
DeepPack’s booth N°247, in Hall B2, boasted a lineup of distinguished members from the engineering and research team, namely Fares El Kahla, Emna Ghodhbani, Christoffel Doorman, and Andy Wang, along with representatives from the business development team, including Marouen Khazri Mersni, Meher Bnouni and Dr. Waqaas Rehman. The booth attracted a substantial contingent of visitors, primarily consisting of managers, business development managers, and senior executives, all of whom conveyed a distinct and resounding demand for an AI-powered bin-packing solution.
During the four-day event, the DeepPack team demonstrated the solution’s capabilities, highlighting its ability to optimize space utilization, minimize waste, and increase efficiency in the packing process. The demo showcased how the software optimizes load plans for maximum efficiency and cost savings, reduces loading time, and ensures compliance with safety regulations. Valuable feedback was received, allowing the team to further refine and tailor the solution to meet the specific needs of potential clients and collaborators.
In addition to showcasing their products, the DeepPack team capitalized on the opportunity to network with industry leaders and other stakeholders in the logistics, mobility, IT, and supply chain management sectors. This engagement provided valuable insights into the latest trends and innovations in the industry, paving the way for potential collaborations and partnerships.
Revolutionizing cargo measurements with Computer Vision Integration
To shed light on the Computer Vision technology, the team delivered a demo of a computer vision-based software designed to address the challenge of inaccurate cargo measurements. As an automated dimensioning solution, it enables precise measurement of cargo dimensions, ensuring reliable and consistent results. Notably, it goes beyond being a stand-alone solution for dimension measurement. It seamlessly integrates with existing Transportation Management Systems (TMS), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), or Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) through API integration, offering a seamless and fully automated workflow that enhances efficiency and accuracy throughout the cargo measurement process.
The solution capitalizes on the synergy between its two main components to enable automated and precise measurements of box dimensions for export and storage. The hardware, consisting of advanced 3D cameras and tripods, captures box and cylinder dimensions with exceptional accuracy, boasting a margin of error of just ±1 cm. This high level of precision allows for simultaneous measurements of multiple items, delivering instant and reliable results. Complementing the hardware, the user-friendly mobile application serves as a powerful software component, facilitating adjustments, measurements, and visualization of dimensions. Users can effortlessly visualize the dimensions of measured items, creating an accessible and comprehensive database.
The integration of this Computer Vision measurement platform with DeepPack enhances its capabilities, providing logistics companies with a more comprehensive solution. It enables users to generate precise and detailed data on cargo dimensions, empowering them to make informed decisions and engage in strategic planning. Furthermore, the integration facilitates the optimization of container space utilization and the precise determination of the optimal item placement according to the recommended load plan. This ensures maximum efficiency and minimizes wastage in logistics operations. By combining both: DeepPack and the Computer Vision-based dimensioning solution, logistics companies can streamline their processes, improve resource utilization, and achieve optimal results in managing and organizing their cargo.
DeepPack’s industry impact and recognition
DeepPack’s participation in Transport Logistic 2023 proved to be a resounding success, capturing the interest of numerous visitors who demonstrated keen interest in both DeepPack and the smart measurement platform. Echoing this sentiment, Dr. Sigrid Nikutta, a member of the Management Board of Deutsche Bahn AG and Chairwoman of the Management Board and CEO of DB Cargo AG, aptly underscored the event’s significance, stating, “Transport Logistic is the world’s largest trade fair for logistics and mobility. In 2023, it will finally reunite the industry! We look forward to exchanging ideas with our customers and we will show that goods need to be carried by rail.”
The event served as a platform for the DeepPack team to delve deeper into industry-specific challenges and further accentuated the importance of accurate dimension measurement and item-level identification. Visitors elaborated on their current challenges, providing valuable input on how DeepPack’s solutions could address their specific use cases. A significant majority of attendees still continue to rely on manual load planning and could benefit from digitizing this process without disrupting their supply chain. Additionally, visitors highlighted the prevalent challenge faced by logistics players and competitors alike in handling irregular-shaped items, where DeepPack’s AI-powered bin-packing solution could serve as a valuable aid. As diverse requirements and constraints were brought forth, the DeepPack team gained a heightened awareness of the vital need for a solution to be adaptable to different use cases. Building on the impactful demonstrations and discussions held at the booth, DeepPack effectively showcased its ability to navigate the most common constraints encountered in land, sea, and air transportation.
The team is highly optimistic about the future of their innovative solutions, DeepPack and the automated dimensioning solution, and the transformative impact they can have on the logistics and supply chain industries. They were delighted to engage in meaningful and thought-provoking conversations, fostering valuable exchanges of ideas and insights at the event booth.
Looking ahead, the team has strategic plans to expand into new markets by continuously developing new features and enhancements.
