Singapore is an anchor location for major logistics firms, with the top 25 global players conducting operations here. Many of these companies have key logistics and supply chain operations, including regional or global HQ functions, specialised capabilities, and innovation activities based here.
A Singaporean company in logistics automation with a solid background in Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs) is seeking European forklift design and development companies to collaborate in the design and development of autonomous forklifts, with a view to supply innovative autonomous forklift solutions to the growing logistics sector in Singapore and globally. This company is currently designing and developing its own line of AGVs for logistics use and has the key capabilities to cross over to the autonomous forklift arena.
The collaborator should ideally be an European Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) who designs, develops and manufactures its own line of forklifts. It should be keen in innovation collaborations with Asian companies, and keen to enter the autonomous forklift market in partnership with this Singaporean AGV company. As the domain knowledge owner in forklift designs, the forklift company shall work in tandem with the Singaporean AGV company to co-develop autonomous forklifts.
The Singaporean company is keen to work directly with European forklift design and development companies, and not looking at partnerships with forklift distributors at this stage.
