ABSTRACT

A Singaporean SME in logistics automation with a strong background in Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs) is seeking European forklift companies to collaborate in the design and development of autonomous forklifts, with a view to supply innovative autonomous forklift solutions to the growing logistics sector in Singapore and globally.

The SME is seeking research cooperation and licensing agreements with potential European forklift design and development SME partners.


FULL DESCRIPTION

Singapore is an anchor location for major logistics firms, with the top 25 global players conducting operations here. Many of these companies have key logistics and supply chain operations, including regional or global HQ functions, specialised capabilities and innovation activities based here.

The Singapore SME has near 20 years of experience in the industry, supplying and servicing these companies with its end-to-end robotic Industrial 4.0 solutions. Currently, the company is designing and developing its own line of AGVs for logistics use and has the key capabilities to cross over to the autonomous forklift market.

The company is seeking European forklift research, design and development SMEs (11-500) as collaboration partners and envisages research cooperation agreements or licensing agreements where novel autonomous forklift solutions are developed to serve the growing demand for automated logistics.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The Singaporean company is seeking European manufacturer collaborators who specialise in the design and development of forklifts and is keen to develop further in the autonomous forklift arena.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The ideal collaborator is an European SME who designs, develops and manufactures its own line of forklifts.

Potential partners should be keen in innovative research cooperation or licensing collaborations with Asian companies, and interested to enter the autonomous forklift market in partnership with this Singaporean AGV company.

Being the domain knowledge owner in forklift designs, the forklift company will work in tandem with the Singaporean AGV company to co-develop autonomous forklifts.

The company is not looking at partnerships with forklift distributors at this stage.
