Phoenix Logistics’ SASD-A system will be the next big thing for logistics companies
Posted On July 29, 2021
The Phoenix Logistic Systems Division of SASD is planning to enter the logistics space with a new system that it says will revolutionize logistics operations.
The Phoenix Logistical Systems Division is developing the SASD system, which it describes as a fully modular system that can be deployed on a wide range of systems.
“It is a complete package, meaning it can be put together to create a very scalable system,” Phoenix Logistation’s VP of product management, Scott Baskin, said in a recent interview with the Texas Tribune.
Baskin said the SASL-A systems are built on a modular platform that will allow it to be scaled to support the different needs of a company.
The company’s first SASD platform will be used for cargo logistics, with the SASLA-A and SASL modules built into the existing Phoenix logistics platform.
The new system will also provide a single point of failure for all systems that use SASL, Baskins said.
The SASL module will include a number of components that will be needed to provide a level of redundancy, including sensors, power supplies, and networking, according to a release.
It’s also important to note that the SASLC modules will be available in a variety of capacities, ranging from small to medium-sized, according the release.
The new SASL system will support two types of customers: small and medium-size companies, Basket Logistics, and larger companies that require a broader set of systems that can support a wider set of operations.
“When it comes to providing redundancy for the SAS LCM, we’re going to be the first to provide the capability,” Baskis said.
“The next thing is that the customer will be able to choose their own configurations.”
The system is currently being designed to handle cargo transport in the U.S., Basket’s VP John Givens said in an interview with The Texas Tribune earlier this year.
Basket has been working with SASD to bring SASL to the company’s products for years, and the company plans to use SASLC’s modules in its trucks, Bairns said.
Bairns also pointed out that SASLC is not the only option that Basket has at its disposal to meet the needs of its customers.
He said the company also has the capability to use the SASLD-A modules in the cargo barge and ship containers, which Bairn said is the first time a company is building a fully integrated logistics system that includes a modular component.
Bail’s COO, Brian Gorman, said the technology is expected to be ready in about a year.
The announcement comes after SASD’s former CEO announced the company would begin shipping SASL products to its customers beginning in 2019.BASK-A has also begun shipping SASLD modules to Basket, Baims said in the release, adding that it will ship SASLD to the truck and ship container industries.
The goal of SASL is to bring in a broader, more agile set of solutions to meet an ever-changing business environment.
Bakk-A is a subsidiary of SAS Group, which owns the Texas-based SAS Group.BK Enterprises has also entered the logistics market with its SASL solution, but Baski said BK Enterprises will likely be a new player in the market.
“This is a new product and it’s going to take time to get to market,” Basket said.
“We will certainly be able and ready to roll it out to the end-user.”
