End-to-end digital management: breaking through barriers with a shared platform with localized support
The rapid development of information technology has provided solid foundations for remote management, and with the establishment of end-to-end business platforms, leveraging technologies such as IoT can achieve information sharing and real-time monitoring to guarantee high-efficiency operation.
The platform, known as the “port,” supports the production lines, business units, and operations in terms of logistics and services for international operations. The majority of the ground teams are local employees who can communicate better with the customers to provide efficient services and support. The platforms are also supported by technical engineers who take the customer’s local demands into consideration to develop customized products that better meet the needs of the local markets.
Zoomlion has also achieved localized manufacturing and supply chain management. In addition to the solid performance of the companies it has acquired overseas (CIFA, m-tec, Wilbert), Zoomlion’s overseas production facilities, including an industrial park in Belarus are also developing steadily. Zoomlion’s factory in Brazil has almost doubled its output this year, and the factory in India is now in construction.
Zoomlion has established R&D centers, manufacturing bases, marketing and sales networks in 125 countries and regions worldwide, with its products available in over 130 countries and regions across seven continents. It operates more than 30 subsidiaries and 10 production bases worldwide.
