Retenue dans la catégorie ‘Brevets’, la société dédiée à la logistique 4.0 mène au niveau mondial une politique très active de protection de sa propriété intellectuelle

 

 

 

Marseille, France, le 11 décembre 2018 – Traxens, société qui développe une solution globale de monitoring et de coordination du transport multimodal, annonce aujourd’hui avoir reçu le trophée INPI 2018, catégorie « Brevet ». Ce trophée récompense la stratégie de propriété intellectuelle de Traxens qui, depuis 2012, évolue sur des marchés concurrentiels internationaux avec une dimension technologique forte.

 

 

 

Traxens fait partie des douze PMEs et trois centres de recherches sélectionnés par le jury de cette édition et l’une des trois sociétés retenues dans la catégorie ‘Brevets’. Le trophée a été remis par Eric Carreel, président du jury 2018.

 

 

 

« Grâce à Traxens, le transport maritime conteneurisé passe à l’ère numérique, » souligne Eric Carreel, président de l’Edition 2018. « Au vu de la grande qualité des technologies développées par Traxens, certaines sont sans aucun doute amenées à devenir des standards, tandis que d’autres font déjà l’objet de licence dans plusieurs secteurs industriels. C’est une stratégie étroitement liée à la qualité de la propriété industrielle que nous avons souhaité saluer aujourd’hui. »

 

 

 

Après plusieurs années de tests grandeur nature, Traxens propose aux transporteurs des boitiers électroniques à fixer sur les conteneurs afin de leur fournir des informations à forte valeur ajoutée : position du conteneur en mer et sur terre, intensité des chocs éventuellement subis, historique des ouvertures et fermetures de portes ou variations de températures.

 

 

 

« Notre solution est en cours de déploiement sur l’ensemble des flottes des armateurs MSC et CMA CGM et nous déclinons aujourd’hui notre offre pour la SNCF en l’adaptant à des wagons de train. Nous développons également avec Daher une mallette connectée pour suivre en temps réel le transport de produits à très haute valeur ajoutée, » indique Jacques Delort, Directeur Général de Traxens. « Sur le marché encore balbutiant de la logistique 4.0, nous avons su créer des solutions technologiques de rupture, en partenariat avec huit laboratoires publics, dont l’INRIA. Nous sommes propriétaires de plusieurs brevets internationaux et nous menons une politique très active contre les contrefacteurs. »

 

 

 

Depuis leur création en 1991, les Trophées INPI valorisent et récompensent des entreprises et centres de recherche innovants, qui se distinguent par l’exemplarité de leur stratégie de propriété industrielle. Expliseat, Wandercraft, Devialet, BlaBlaCar ou encore Fermob comptent parmi les lauréats des éditions précédentes, parce qu’ils ont fait de l’innovation un pilier de leur croissance, en menant une politique de propriété industrielle volontaire et cohérente.

Traxens trials Internet-of–Things (IoT) network in port environment for first time, at MSC Terminal Valencia

Pilot project from big data and fleet management specialist aimed at providing better overview of traffic at port for improved operational efficiency

Marseille, France, December 13, 2018 - Traxens, a company providing high-value data and services for the supply chain industry, today announces that it is collaborating with the MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company, a global leader in transportation and logistics, on a pilot IoT project in the Port of Valencia, Spain, aimed at improving the operational efficiency of the port. Specifically, Traxens co-operates on this project with MSC Terminal Valencia, the Port Authority at the Port of Valencia and Fundacion Valenciaport (FVP). The trial started in September 2018.

As part of the pilot project, MSC Spain trucks have been equipped with Traxens’ dedicated IoT devices, allowing for near real-time tracking of movement of vehicles. This can help port authorities to predict and manage potential congestion, as well as to anticipate truck arrivals at the gates. Overall operational efficiency is therefore expected to significantly improve due to easy monitoring of on-site road activity and improved fleet management as well as pre- and post-carriage management. Traxens has installed a gateway in the MSC Terminal to allow enhanced and secured connectivity. It will also provide access to its big data analytics platform, TraxensHub, via APIs, bringing enhanced analytics and reporting capabilities for port authorities.

“Our pilot project at the Port of Valencia is one of the first applications of an IoT system in a port environment and we are eagerly awaiting results,” said Jacques Delort, managing director of Traxens. “We believe that big data is the future of the shipping industry. We are delighted that we could co-operate on such an important project with the Port of Valencia, which has ValenciaportPCS, one of the best-in-class Port Community Systems.”

“We have already used IoT devices by Traxens for tracking our containers and we believe that the functionality can really help port authorities in improving operations. This could bring benefits to all parties,” said Jaime Lopez, intermodal project leader, MSC Spain.

“The Port of Valencia believes in the role of innovation and digitalization in the future of shipping ports, for example by using the PCS (Port Community Systems) integration platform. We are delighted to provide a trial site for Traxens, which could eventually result in the improvement of operations for the whole of the shipping industry,” said Miguel Llop, director of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), at the Fundacion Valenciaport.

Following a successful pilot trial, Traxens aims to extend its solution to other terminals within the Port of Valencia, by deploying additional gateways. The existing gateway will then be used for testing and improving processes related to all smart containers passing through the area.
