SEAT started to transport the parts used in production in its factory in Martorell with drone.
SEAT now supplies parts such as the steering wheel and airbag, which it uses in production, with an unmanned aerial vehicle (drone) at its Martorell factory in Barcelona. Thanks to its collaboration with Grupo Sese, SEAT transports parts from Sese's logistics center in Abrera to the SEAT factory in Martorell using drones.
Thanks to the drone, an 90-minute process by road increases the flexibility and speed of production lines by linking two plants over two kilometers away in just 15 minutes.
In line with the Industry 4.0 commitment, SEAT is undergoing an ambitious transformation process aimed at making the Martorell factory smarter, more digital and more accessible to increase efficiency, flexibility and sustainability. Delivery with unmanned aircraft results in a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions compared to truck transport, and in addition, unmanned aircraft batteries can be recharged using renewable energy.
SEAT Production and Logistics Vice President Dr. SEAT brought together this idea. Christian Vollmer said, teslimat Delivery with unmanned aerial vehicles will revolutionize logistics, for example at SEAT, reducing delivery time by 80. Industry We support 4.0 and we believe that with this innovation we will be more sustainable, more efficient, agile and competitive. ”
