Automated delivery, storage, and logistics networks
for the smart cities
The management of parcels in urban environments is still done today in the same way as thousands of years ago, by hand,…
through a process that, except for the relatively recent incorporation of logistics technologies, goes through the uncertainty in the collection and delivery, the risk of deterioration or loss of products, and mainly personal hauling.
Today 90% of the goods that enter or leave a home, are still carried by their occupants, on foot transfers or in processes of loading and unloading of private vehicles or public transport. A reconsidered city must have in its fundamental bases the total automation of something as usual and simple processes such as the management of merchandise and personal parcels, and based on this, explore all derived solutions.
LML Systems is developing a global last mile logistics solution for new urban environments and cities smart-upgraded. …
It is based on an automated network of delivery and collection of merchandise for personal, commercial, storage and recycling use.
We are designing automated models for parcel movement, composed of a high-capillar intelligent network, with end-user point, connected to direct suppliers, logistics operator centers, and storage centers.
The set of services of the network will allow the user to manage their deliveries of goods in a point or PDC (personal deliveries closet), and at the same time the storage of goods and products in specialized services in an intelligent, precise and safe way.
The infrastructure of the LML Systems network has basic components, on which, or through them, the entire service can be built. Each of these components or Infrastructure parts allows a complete research and development process.
Autonomous Containers SNC
The Standardized Network Containers (SNC), are lightweight autonomous (electric) containers, of 40x60x40cm and other compatible formats, for the circulation through our LML networks.
Local merchants, producers, markets or suppliers prepare deliveries in Standardized Network Containers (SNC), and deliver them to the Public network.
General logistics or e-commerce logistics companies prepare deliveries in Standardized Network Containers (SNC), and deliver them tothe Public network.
Automated network of displacement in 2 planes (X-Y), which links all points of the infrastructure, and through which the SNC containers circulates.
Short term storage service, pre-delivery. Maintains the SNC in the optimal conditions in each case (refrigerated, secured, etc.), as requested by the Personal Deliveries Closets (PDC).
Network maintenance, sanitation and control services for all SNC containers that circulate through the LML network.
Automated network of displacement in 3 plans (X-Y-Z), maglev technology, located in residential, offices or commercial buildings, linking the public network with customers PDC.
Shared space for storage in residential, office or commercial buildings, usually for short periods or small volumes.
Delivery point PDC
The Personal Deliveries Closet (PDC), is a 40x60x120cm appliance and other compatible formats, available for homes, offices and businesses, receiver of SNC containers.
Short or long-term and specialized storage services (refrigerated, secured, etc.), to avoid self-storage in homes, offices or business. Uses SNC containers.
Shared space where the different recycling containers are located in residential, office or commercial buildings, for short periods or small volumes.
Centralized recycling and waste reception services for proper treatment. The reception is done through SNC containers pre-classified.
Service of reception and shipment of baggage in an unassisted way. The suitcases and others are sent from the customer PDC through SNC containers to the service center.
The LML network supports delivery to unconnected points. The exchange of SNC containers is processed in delivery centers that can use standard or autonomous delivery devices.
The Independent Personal Deliveries Closet (i-PDC), is an appliance compatible with standard PDCs, available for homes, offices and businesses, not connected to a LML network.
The optimal scenario for the development of an automated logistics system is to have a complete sender to recipient network. This is possible only in networks, neighborhoods, or newly created cities, but in the existing ones, their deployment can only be done in stages or partially.
A Public network LML contains a system for preparing deliveries in standardized containers, with access to the distribution network for automated delivery. Its high capillarity allows multi-connection of sender to recipient points, which benefits the user and the proximity business, as well as increasing the supply of services and consumption.
The network is supported by a Public warehouse system for the short-term storage pre-delivery, and a network maintenance, sanitation and control service. At the other point is the access to the different Private networks, which are located in residential buildings, offices, or shops adapted to the LML network.
In addition, the Private network connects with access points to the set of complementary services, such as those of Warehousing for short or long-term and specialized storage (refrigerated, secured, etc.), or those of Recycling and Waste reception for proper treatment.
The minimum support for the development of an automated LML logistics system is the Private network, which is implemented in residential, office or commercial buildings, allowing itself to develop a set of automated services in the field of reception and management of goods.
A Private network LML contains a parcel distribution system in standardized containers, for a community of users. The delivery is made by connecting to the Public Network LML, or through a common automated deposit point, which allows acceptance of shipments with the absent receiver, and delivery on demand.
The network can host a Warehouse services system for the short or long-term and specialized storage (refrigerated, secured, etc.), in addition to a Recycling depot, a shared space where the different recycling containers are located for short periods or small volumes (which are later removed by a semi-automated service).
Other complementary services may be integrated into the Private Network, such as remote storage, GR Gamified Recycling or IP-DP Integrated Purchase from Direct Producer programs.
LML System benefits
The development of super-efficient logistics networks, through fully automated processes, will radically change the last mile logistics business, and its entire environment. The implementation of projects based on LML Systems, provides very significant benefits in the following 4 areas:
LML System roadmap
We are currently involved in the development stage of prototypes, patents and integration of solutions.
What are we looking for?
Construction companies, civil, mechanical or electrical engineering, urban planning and automated systems, and others, to collaborate with, or integrate into, the LML system.
Universities, international organizations, foundations, and others, to participate in the design stage of the LML system and its elements.
Logistics, delivery and parcel operators, warehousing and systems, recycling and waste management companies, for the ntegration of their solutions and products.
In the fields of future infrastructures, circular economy, smart city, industry 4.0, blockchain and others, for the adapted development of solutions and services.
What do we offer?
Communication and marketing
In a complex environment such as the smart city and logistics, being a LML Systems partner provides communication and contacts at all levels, supported by our global communication platform and our project roadshow.
Taking part in the LML System as a strategic partner means taking a stake in a sector that will reach colossal dimensions in he coming decades.
Incorporating solutions and services to LML Systems means opening to an integrated platform with great commercial and strategic projection for the 21st century.
