ProGlove´s Solution for the Automotive Industry

Mercedes-Benz Vans, one of the biggest producers of premium vans with Logistics processes at 5 sites, in Europe, Latin America and the USA. At Mercedes-Benz Vans, we identified the opportunity to make the job of logistics easier by removing a disruptive step in their picking operations. Just one of the reasons why ProGlove has become an importantfactor within the organization.

Mercedes-Benz Vans needed an accurate and efficient way to discover issues, update outdated methods of tracking and improve stability across all stages of its extensive logistics operations.

SUBSTANTIAL RESULT: A minimum of four seconds saved per scan makes for substantial time savings as Mercedes-Benz Vans builds hundreds of vehicles per day with some 1,000 scans per car. Additionally, ProGlove Insight provides perfect movement tracking to efficiently address relevant issues.

Our joint innovation efforts helped move Mercedes-Benz Vans sites such as the one in Duesseldorf move forward into a fully digital environment. Mercedes-Benz Vans was one of our first automotive customers to implement INSIGHT, our industry analytics software. This ground-breaking solution optimizes and tracks movements to improve the efficiency on their shop floor.

Thanks to ProGlove, we managed to make our logistics processes more digital and efficient. We also increased process acceptance among workers by significantly improving ergonomics and simplifying processes. By using Insight, we will also be able to measure these improvements on the shop floor going forward.
