Driving Innovation Forward with adiutaByte GmbH and Routeique

In the ever-evolving world of logistics and supply chain management, innovation and collaboration are key to staying ahead. ECCIR is proud to highlight a remarkable success story showcasing the power of international collaboration and innovation.

This story involves adiutaByte GmbH from Germany and Routeique from Canada, who, along with a third partner, Motion Miners from Germany, embarked on a transformative project under the IraSME program.

adiutaByte GmbH: A German company specializing in real-time optimization software, adiutaByte develops advanced algorithms and machine learning solutions to tackle complex fleet management tasks across various sectors. Their technology reduces manual planning efforts, cuts costs, and enhances customer satisfaction.

Routeique: Based in Canada, Routeique offers a cloud-based, end-to-end order and delivery management solution for supply chains. Their integrated hardware and software solutions connect manufacturers, distributors, and retailers, streamlining supply chain operations.

Together, these innovative companies successfully applied for the IraSME program and received funding for their project, ERTRaWOS. The goal of ERTRaWOS was to develop an optimization system for warehouse and fleet management in logistics. The project leveraged the strengths of each partner:

  • Motion Miners: Collected detailed data from warehouses using their advanced technology.
  • Routeique: Provided specific fleet data through their Vehicle Brain system.
  • adiutaByte: Utilized their cutting-edge algorithms and fleet planning software to process the data, improve fleet routing, and reduce manual planning.

The collaborative efforts focused on optimizing warehouse personnel movements, minimizing distances covered during the picking process, and automating fleet planning for deliveries. The fleet planning system used data from Routeique to enhance fleet management based on various goods categories and vehicle capacities.

Outcomes and Impact:

  • Enhanced Market Position: The collaboration has improved the market position and share for all partners involved.
  • Revenue Growth: adiutaByte reported a 5% increase in revenue as a direct result of the project.
  • Job Creation: The project led to the creation of two new jobs and safeguarded at least one existing position at adiutaByte.
  • Improved Product Quality: The innovative technologies developed through this partnership have resulted in higher-quality products.
  • Increased Competitiveness: All partners have benefited from the competitive edge gained through these advanced solutions.

The success of this technological cooperation has paved the way for further business collaborations. Following the development phase, a roll-out and real-time trial with a large beverage manufacturer in Canada is currently underway. Additionally, the partners are planning joint trade fair visits and further commercialization activities.

This success story is a testament to the invaluable role of the Enterprise Europe Network partners, ZENIT GmbH and ECCIR, who initiated contact between the partners and supported their collaboration throughout the project. Their efforts exemplify how international partnerships can drive innovation, economic growth, and competitive advantage on a global scale.
