A few days later, on March 25th, the CVP-500 is again awarded with the “Prix de l’Innovation Intra-logistique” (intralogistics innovation award) during the SITL 2016 trade show.
With this award, SITL Europe enables companies to compete for the development of a product, service or innovative organization in the Transport and Logistics sectors.
Each file is subject to a comprehensive study by a jury composed of professionals recognized for their skills and representative of the various professions in Transport and Logistics. The winners were honored at an Awards Ceremony during the event.
“All files were solid and of quality, and innovative. This year, the jury, in general , has been more sensitive to innovations involving human and environmental issues at the heart of the logistics process . Security and integrated solutions in a connected environment also guided the selection” confessed Alain Bagnaud, Manager of Reed Exhibitions Transport & Logistics and President of the Jury.”

These two awards reflect the rise of robotics and automation in Logistics. And, the CVP- 500 is a perfect example by creating fit to size parcels and automating the packing process while optimizing volume, materials consumption and storage space.
