Aliapur will take part in the Semaine de l’innovation transport et logistique 2019 (Transport and logistics innovation week, SiTL), which will be held between 26 and 28 March in Paris. The SiTL brings together all the innovative products and services designed for the logistics, freight transport and supply chain industries. It will host 500 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors, essentially the decision-makers, users and service providers for transport and logistics, as well as shippers from the trade, industry and large-scale retail sectors.

Aliapur will be present to provide its testimony on two counts, as part of a workshop organised by its service provider, Aloer Consultants, which has accompanied the company in the implementation of its tool for optimising transport and logistics flows.

These flows have become increasingly complex in recent years. This is the result of an increase in the number of tyres to be processed, as well as diversification in the recovery methods – and thus in the key players and destinations. The flows need ever more forward-looking and detailed operational management and cost control. The tool implemented for Aliapur with the support of Aloer has been named Tétrys, and it is now used successfully for all logistics operations in the sector, both on land and at sea, from tyre collections to their final destination, whether as whole tyres or shred.

In this workshop, Aliapur will also be presenting new expertise: annual inventories of whole tyre and shred stocks for each transformation site service provider in the sector, performed using a drone equipped with an HD camera and associated with specific software.

Following a trial in 2016, this technique was deployed internally in 2017 and was generalised in 2018. Aliapur thus has its own professional drone, piloting of which requires a certificate of aptitude from the Direction générale de l’aviation civile (French general directorate for civil aviation, DGAC) – exactly the same authorisation as for a microlight pilot. From one or two days, depending on the size of the site using the traditional method of weighing each stock, the time needed for each inventory with the drone is now between 2 and 4 hours, data transfer included.
