Financial Times has created a ranking of 100 companies that excel in Europe in terms of digitization and innovation. The list includes, among others Airbus, Siemens and Girteka Logistics.
According to the daily, the companies and people from the world of business listed in the ranking show the trends in the development of Europe, among others in the field of corporate digital transformations, and the introduction of new technologies to the business world.
It’s not only about blockchain and the internet of things
The ranking contained only a handful of companies from the transport and logistics sector that change the way they operate using digital technologies. One of them is Asti Technologies, a Spanish company that „created autonomous vehicles transporting goods in factories and warehouses.” Another one is Lithuanian Girteka.
The latter introduced a fleet management system called „Transics” in its vehicles at the end of March. The system collects and transmits data from vehicles and trailers to the company in real time.
The system also works on applications for mobile phones, thanks to which communication with the driver is possible even when the driver is not in the truck,” says Girteka in a press release.
As we learned from Kristian Kaas Mortensen from the Girteka press office, the implementation of the system in the entire fleet began this year, but it will last until the beginning of 2019.
In addition, the Financial Times also listed the Norwegian AutoStore, which successfully uses robots to increase storage space efficiency and German Imperial Logistics, which „uses blockchain technology and the internet of things to help clients manage the supply chain.”
