SEAT masters the delivery of parts by a droneJuly 12, 2019
The company is working to incorporate drones into the manufacturing process. While the procedure is under testing. So, the Spanish manufacturer at its main plant in Martorell (Spain) transports auto parts from one of its partners to the assembly lines using drones.
It is assumed that the service will connect the Grupo SES warehouse with the production line. The drone is able to fly a distance of almost 2 km in 15 minutes. Meanwhile, it takes about 90 minutes for trucks to deliver parts, as they expect full loading at each point. Meanwhile, drones are able to deliver each spare part separately, taking off as soon as it is needed. SEAT notes that the use of new technologies should significantly improve efficiency.
“Delivery using drones will lead to a revolutionary development of logistics, for example, it will shorten the delivery time by 80%. Thanks to this, we will become more efficient, flexible, sustainable and competitive, ” – said Christian Vollmer, vice president of logistics at SEAT.
