The basic idea of the concept is to digitize by using a tracking system on the website as well as an Internet-based payment system and mobile payment. Simplify ordering, pickup, and delivery to make it as cheap as possible
The customer pays up front at the time of shipment of the goods, which naturally helps to create a fast cash flow for the actual costs of the transport itself.
Thus, there will be no need for overdraft facilities which will help reduce costs.
This is also done by postal services but has not been used earlier in this industry.
Eco Friendly Objectives
In the long run, Internet-based video-controlled container depots will be set up with a mutual distance of approximately 200 kilometers, in strategic places, along the routes in Spain and Denmark. These depots will no later than 2020 be a base for changing and charging batteries where the electricity is made using our own solar cells and small wind turbines.
This is definitely the company’s goal.
However, this will only happen when it becomes possible to get small vans (3500kg) as electric / hybrid cars. Of course, this process will be pushed by manufacturers of vans. Perhaps even rebuild old diesel engine cars, with new electric motors.
This should be seen in view of the fact that the fuel cost is about 50% of total transport cost.
However, when more and more electric cars come to the market, I am convinced that the battery power will be almost as expensive per kilometer as traditional gasoline. My experiences in many areas suggests that
Self-Produced Battery Power
But in our case, we then have solar collectors on the cars’ horizontal surfaces, and our own battery charging stations with safe, cheap, self-produced battery power, which equals the lowest possible operating cost for the customer.
