Our thesis for the future of the industry

The future of the industry is characterized by increasing digitization, regulation, and a call for greener and more resilient supply chains. This development is driven in part by global mega trends that are pushing the industry and will have a major impact on the way we do business in the future.

Some of our previous innovation projects

Digital Warehouse Twin

We have established a full Digital Warehouse Twin with a combination of 3D model with current information from live data (such as tracking and computer vision) and data from other systems such as dimensions, throughput, or inventory of individual products or materials.

Pallets loaded with goods, secured with plastic wrap and netting, ready for transport or storage

Digital Cargo Twin

We have implemented in-motion scanning solution, which accurately captures weight & dimensions from pallets. The physical dimensions of cargo are mirrored into a digital twin. Hence, a digital cargo twin provides better data foundation for planning, execution and invoicing of transports.

Offshore cargo drones

We have implemented autonomous drones for spare parts delivery to technicians offshore (e.g. windfarms and oilrigs) or remote. Hence, they provide a fast and cost-efficient alternative compared to traditional modes of transport.

Visibility platform

We offer a visibility platform to enable live cargo tracking using active trackers on shipment level and asset trackers. You will thereby obtain complete supply chain visibility, which ensures transport compliance.

Semi-autonomous trucks to mitigate driver shortage

DSV are partnering with leading Truck Manufacturers and Technology Companies to test semi-autonomous driving. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are key to improve the safety and comfort of our drivers.

Autonomous Inventory Drones

We have implemented autonomous drone system to track goods without human interaction and detect if pallet positions are empty or occupied. The system thereby minimizes disruption and improves quality of warehouse operations.
