HiQ supports Renova AB in the development of a new transport planning system

HiQ supports Renova AB in the development of a new transport planning system HiQ Göteborg is cooperating with Renova AB on the development of a new transport planning system aimed at facilitating and improving efficiency in the treatment of waste and recycling materials. The transport planning system will allow Renova's control centre to plan and dispatch transport assignments direct to the vehicles. These can in turn report back (on weight, quantity, deviation, etc.) as soon as the assignments have been completed. The actual communication between the control centre and the vehicles is taken care of by a GSM /GPRS-based subsystem. HiQ has had the responsibility for analysing and troubleshooting Renova's original communications solution, as well as for coordinating the production of a new communications system. The cooperation with Renova is continuing, since HiQ is to provide Renova with continued support as the new transport planning system is implemented. "The assignment from Renova AB is a good example of how HiQ's expertise in systems development and communications can be applied in industries other than the telecoms sector to improve efficiency and bring competitive advantages for our clients," says Anders Karén, Managing Director of HiQ Göteborg. Renova AB is the leading waste and recycling company in Western Sweden. Using a number of facilities for sorting, recycling and treatment Renova has created an efficient and environmentally sound disposal chain for different types of waste. Renova's activities include training and consultancy, collection and logistics, as well as the sorting and treatment of different types of waste. The company handles nearly 700,000 tonnes of waste annually. Over 90 percent of the waste processed is recycled into heat and electricity, new materials or nutrient-rich soil. Renova AB is owned by eleven local authorities in Western Sweden, employs 780 people and serves local authorities and companies throughout the west of Sweden.
