A Spanish start-up has developed an innovative digital logistics platform that optimizes deliveries to clients in the final stage of the process (the last mile). In order to improve its technology, the company is looking for integrating innovative complementary IT add-on solutions: Distance matrix builders, route optimizers, AI (Artificial Intelligence), big data, machine learning, and IoT applications. The kind of partnership sought is license agreement.
The digital logistics platform developed by the Spanish start-up, makes a tangible impact on business results and customer experience by optimizing last mile transport and customer engagement.
It provides Software-as-a-Service platform that offers businesses of any size an easy way to offer an Amazon- or Uber-like level of customer experience, optimization and visibility into their own delivery operations, whether owned or subcontracted, shared or dedicated.
In order to improve its technology, the Spanish company is looking for innovative IT add-on solutions:
-Distance matrix developments: Technologies that provide geographic positions and build up different coordinates of a given route.
-Route optimizers: It complements the distance matrix. In order to ease the development of the route optimizers, the company counts on a highly detailed document describing all labels used in the XML request and response files, the different parameters/restrictions applied and expected behaviour.
In addition, the company has a 300.000 services standard file and six additional smaller files to facilitate fine tuning of the algorithms and the scale-up process.
The sought route optimizers (for deliveries) must be able to deal with a standard performance of 300.000 services, time windows, other restrictions and one hour optimization, including time needed to build distance matrixes.
IoT applications: The kind of tecnologies sought within this area are related to highly specialized and relative small sectors (bio-hazardous residues collection), or on mass-market (50 cheap, single-use temperature sensors per vehicle capturing individual chilled/frozen foods orders temperature, showing its evolution to end-customers and predictive potential issues information to driver, transport company etc.).
AI (Artificial Intelligence), big data, and machine learning applications: The company is looking for solutions oriented to gain further insights and become the scientific base to quantum improvements for clients, public administrations and society in general. Nevertheless, for this kind of applications, the company is more open, being the selection criteria their capabilities and potential.
The preferred partnership sought to incorporate the complementary technologies is license agreement.
- Type of partner sought: The company is looking for technology developers or IT developers companies that can provide any of the technologies sought: Distance matrix builders, route optimizers, AI (Artificial Intelligence), big data, machine learning, and IoT applications.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The Spanish company is looking for IT developers willing to license out anyof the technologies mentioned in the describtion field, in order to improve its logistics platform for the last mile delivery.
Other - The developer should be able to show evidence of being the rights holder of its development or to have prior or sufficient authorization by its legitimate right holder to use any intellectual or industrial property rights belonging to third parties.
