GESM: Comprehensive Solutions for an Intelligent Supply Chain
Integration intelligence, within supply chain management, plays a crucial role in optimizing processes such as material handling, stacking, distribution, and more. A lower degree of integration intelligence invariably leads organizations to resort to manual and mechanical procedures that not only hinder productivity and efficiency but also increase operating and maintenance costs. In addition to such outdated practices, organizations also struggle to integrate equipment and smart sensors with delivery vehicles for adequate supply chain optimization. Consequently, organizations are on a constant quest for solutions that nurture such intelligent integration capabilities to deliver superior customer experiences and attain their organizational objectives. This is where Hangzhou-based GESM makes its mark by assisting its clients in gaining operational resilience and streamlining supply chain operations by offering a wide range of products that include Industrial Electric Vehicles, Commercial IoT Connected Smart Vehicles, and Intelligent Logistics Systems. GESM’s Intelligent Sensor Modularization System (Y-SPACE) integrates innovative software with industry-proven sensor technology in an intelligent and unique way on manually operated trucks-forklifts, storage systems, FTS, commercial vehicles, and cargo vans. This system solves the pain points of delivery route optimization, consignment status checks, and products handling procedures at warehouses. Clients can easily plug and play the Y-SPACE system to enhance logistics equipment machine depth sensing and intelligent decision-making capabilities, with multi-function, multi-machine sensing, and intelligent control.
GESM Y-SPACE Intelligent Sensor Integrated Modular System is composed of two stages of intelligence, first stage, GESM vehicle and connected intelligence, and second stage: sensor data fusion modularization working in the overall logistics system. The Y-SPACE system gathers data from several logistics networks by equipping vehicles with sensor modules to provide insights into urban distribution, inter-city transportation, product stacking, and indoor and outdoor material handling. These data sets are then consolidated with warehouse management systems (WMS), automated storage and retrieval systems (AS & RS), and enterprise resource planning modules for optimizing and monitoring the supply chain in real time. The firm also optimizes sensor data fusion and integration capabilities based on clients’ logistics requirements. “We personalize our Y-SPACE depending on organizations’ logistics needs, thereby, offering them a unique and locally intelligent logistics system,” adds Athena Li, CEO of GESM.
Intelligent Vehicles for Warehousing and Delivery Logistics
The firm also offers WMS and warehouse control system (WCS) solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of customers.

GESM’s vehicles and intelligent network control system can be connected with the locally personalized WMS and WCS of clients’ warehouses to remotely control their logistics network and generate big data to monitor equipment maintenance, equipment operation, warehouse information management, and more. Powered by multi-in-one controllers integrated with auto-charging technology, along with smart sensors and intelligent control, GESM vehicles provide a one-stop intelligent vehicle solution in warehousing and urban delivery logistics. By adopting tools like 5G communication network layer, big data, cloud computing, GESM connects intelligent logistics vehicle, logistics system, as well as software one-key user app, to empower customers with an IoT based logistics application. With GESM, clients can realize the benefits of self- driving or autonomous driving as well as establish a base for future logistics network platform.
Moreover, the company offers different channels for sales and marketing to provide customers a more practical supply chain financing installment or hire purchase, financial leasing, logistics costs packaging, and other flexible financing options. “GESM purveys supply chain financing support to mitigate clients’ payment challenges during purchasing and delivering operations,” adds Athena.
Armed with a results-driven product and service portfolio, GESM collaborates with numerous organizations and improves their supply chain efficiency. One such association with a Coco-Cola subsidiary company best demonstrates GESM's capability in catering to clients needs through its products and services. To streamline its client's supply chain of beverages, GESM deployed electric vehicles and offered a big data application to monitor, analyze, and enhance the delivery of their products. This helped the subsidiary with real-time monitoring, positioning, navigating, diagnosing, and checking of cargo delivery. The client was able to reduce the operating cost of their supply chain by 30 percent while decreasing the headcount of its workforce considerably.
The Future of Smart Logistics
GESM’s robust approach to supply chain optimization was conceptualized along with the founding of the company in the year 2016 with the sole purpose of delivering a smart logistics technology to organizations worldwide. Since then, GESM has gained traction by offering a multi-in-one controller with auto-charging technology, along with smart sensors to provide a one-stop intelligent vehicle solution in warehousing and urban delivery logistics operations. In fact, GESM’s smart factory at Hangzhou is a showcase for smart logistics, IoT, and user app platforms, including two centers dedicated to R&D in logistics technology. The productions as well as testing of intelligent vehicles and systems are carried out by two smart workshops. The factory also consists of designed autonomous transportation area, display of intelligent logistics technologies and pile-free charging area, roofs covered by solar energy storage power plant, and golf driving range.
GESM further plans to enhance its intelligent sensor integrated modularization system, by creating a supporting application in engineering vehicle industry such as industrial and commercial trucks, heavy load trucks, tractors, crane, and more. GESM’s roadmap also consists of a storage power station and power supply auto-charging management system to assist power storage plan in logistics while reducing energy consumption. The company is also working on an intelligent, active stability system—the second generation multi-intelligent sensor integration modules—to increase a vehicle’s ability to forecast breakdowns, which can help organizations perform preventive maintenance and avoid equipment malfunctions. GESM is also committed to creating an ecological chain and enhancing its logistics network to provide comprehensive services while reducing the logistics operation cost.
