Applied Integration, a leading UK Industry 4.0 Logistics Technology integrator and mission critical controls developer are pleased to announce its partnership with DTA, a company specialising in the design and manufacture of self-propelled indoor and outdoor transporters.

Founded in 1972, DTA transports have been used in many sectors like wind & rail sectors, nuclear, shipbuilding, automotive, aerospace, steel, mines, ports, bakeries and many others transporting loads from 1 to 1,200 tons.

An approach that will enable customers to manage the smart factory digital transformation, while ensuring minimal adoption disruption, optimised ROI, future proofed investments and development of world class logistics and manufacturing processes through effective technology adoption.

“As an autonomous transport provider for several years, we experienced a large increase in demand for adaptable cost-effective transports for very heavy/very large payloads for applications such as Steel mills, ship building, aerospace, trains, press shops etc. Our exclusive UK partnership with DTA, a globally recognised provider of high-quality autonomous and, remote control transports, means we can now offer smart solutions for transporting payloads up to and beyond a very impressive 120 ton+”, says Peter Moore, R&A Business and Strategy Manager at Applied Integration.
