There are more than 800 cities worldwide with at least one million inhabitants. And the trend is rising. For this reason, delivery traffic is also increasing and (over)filling the streets during the day. The service providers who cover the last mile are therefore dependent on innovative solutions to revolutionize delivery.
SAERTEX and PONTIS
SAERTEX and Pontis Engineering have committed to a close cooperation with a holistic approach to solutions. The focus is on projects in the area of "Last-Mile Delivery", where electric and hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles offer a more sustainable mobility solution for the transport of people and goods. Pontis' technical expertise combined with SAERTEX reinforcement materials enables companies to offer their customers a complete package with a higher value proposition.
The key element of the cooperation is the combination of innovative engineering solutions with individually tailored reinforcement materials in order to provide customers with a complete solution offer with the best possible performance. Through this collaboration, SAERTEX and Pontis enable their partners to deliver a more comprehensive package. Companies that typically only provide "build-to-print" will benefit from the ability to offer original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) a higher value proposition.
One example of this is the PONTIS "E-Transporter" project. This concept is an autonomous airport shuttle for passenger and freight transport with a modular platform (size and payload) and a length of 4-8 meters. The main structure is made of composite and recycled material.
