Optimised Waste Logistics (OWL) is a partnership initiative developed by CMS SupaTrak, Vision Techniques and Vehicle Weighing Solutions. As individual organisations, they already supply stand alone solutions to and support the waste management sector, but together, they provide a unique waste collection solution, bringing together the expertise from each organisation, resulting in a fully integrated waste collection solution.
The story began in 2011, when CMS SupaTrak were approached by a number of local authorities who all shared the same concerns. They were all working with a number of suppliers, providing waste management solutions, but none of them integrated with each other, resulting in the end user having to work with numerous interfaces in a number of formats. The local authorities in question, asked whether it would be possible to introduce the suppliers to each other in order to develop a way of working together to create one integrated end to end solution.
So they did, and a few months later the OWL took flight....
