Logistics and Transport

IT services & solutions that will transform the logistics and transport sector, without costing the earth.

Moving the logistics and transport sector forward with digital solutions.

The logistics and transport sector is a vital part of value chains nationally and internationally. They support trade and commerce and assist businesses in getting their products to customers. 

With the UK having one of the largest online retail sectors in Europe, ever more strain is put on logistics and transport companies, forcing them into an accelerated need for improved technology. 

Kyocera-Annodata have been working with some of the worlds biggest logistics companies since 2013.

The challenges.

The logistics and transport sector faces a number of challenges, with data information and technology impacting how they deliver services.

Data breaches and Cyber security

Every sector has exposure to cyber risks, including transportation and logistics.  Like other sectors, the days of paper and land lines have transitioned to networks, digital devices, applications, and web-based tools that are critical to operating in this industry. 

Printing & scanning issues

Warehouses need to print shipping labels and scan documents quickly. The inability to do so can cause productivity lags and other problems along the supply chain. Lack of resilience in the printer fleet with no break fix strategy can severely effect operations.

Warehouse wireless instability and non-standardisation

Poor warehouse wireless coverage, network instability, and random handheld disconnections are a major issue. Non-standardization between a hardware vendor and a device model will create major headaches and a painful troubleshooting process when things go wrong.

Environmental Impact

Environmental and climate change issues are of increasing concern in society, addressing these issues is of growing importance. Having a strong environmental charter in place is becoming a necessity rather than a luxury.

IT infrastructure issues

The undervaluing of the core business infrastructure can impact business productivity and ultimately lead to customer dissatisfaction. This core IT technology is where the processing and sharing of information (such as sales quotes, emails, bills of landing etc.) happen.

Data Integration and Interoperability

Logistics and transport operations create huge amounts of data from multiple sources. Integrating and harmonising this data across different systems and platforms can be a complex task. The lack of interoperability amongst these systems can hinder efficient data sharing and delay decision making.

Carbon neutral printers & MFPs from Kyocera.

All new printers, MFPs and Production printers are offered fully carbon neutral. We offer a bolt on to older Kyocera models that allows them to be carbon offset.

How do we offset the carbon of our print devices?

Kyocera can carbon offset all our devices, plus the Kyocera genuine consumables they use over the lifetime of the product (see t&cs), through a simple bolt-on to the device purchase. This covers all elements of production, packaging, transportation, Kyocera consumables, plus Kyocera genuine toner and device recycling. Based on these factors, we’ve calculated how much carbon needs to be offset for each device in our range.

We offset your new Kyocera devices through myclimate, the same partner we use to offset our own UK business operations. With myclimate, we invest in international projects which are certified by CDM Gold Standard. It is the most stringent certification for carbon offsetting projects and is supported by 60 NGOs worldwide. It is the only standard which certifies a project’s sustainable development factors, including co-benefit criteria like healthcare, job creation or reforestation. You can learn more about myclimate from our climate action page.
