Cardo Crew, an expert in global wireless intercom solutions that specialises in providing reliable, hands-free wireless intercom for teams on the move, has launched its new mesh communication solution that could transform Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and dramatically improve communications and ways of working in the logistics sector.

The Cardo Crew PRO-1 is a lightweight mesh communication module that fits inside PPE such as helmets and ear guards. It is designed for PPE manufacturers to introduce team communication to busy, noisy, warehouse environments, making it ideal for the logistics industry, where communication is vital for supply chain management, increasing efficiency and ensuring the workplace is COVID secure.

According to recent research conducted by Foley and Lardner LLP, COVID-19 has caused a sharp increase in the speed businesses adopt new technologies and innovative processes to improve supply chain management. The top two tools that respondents are considering were visibility and tracking applications (47%), and operational analytics (39%). By embracing these new technologies the logistics industry will be able to reduce costs, track the movement of products and streamline the supply chain.

The PRO-1 launch follows a successful H1 2020 for Cardo Crew, securing new OEM partnerships in Europe and the Middle East in both civil and military Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) markets. Cardo Crew has also launched a new PROmesh mobile app for efficient management of its PRO-1 device, providing rapid set up of an intercom network from anywhere and real-time control of preferences. The app is fully customizable to be in line with the OEM’s brand identity.

“We believe there is a real need for hands-free communication for dynamic teams working in noisy, warehouse environments, which is why we are targeting the logistics market. Given the increasing level of demand in the sector due to the COVID pandemic, it’s clear that there is a need for extra support to ensure more efficient ways of working,” said Shachar Harari, Chief Business Officer & Head of Cardo Crew. “That’s why we’re excited to introduce our latest technology into the sector via OEMs, so we can improve communication, efficiency and supply chain management for logistics companies.”

Pioneered by Cardo Crew, the PRO-1 uses mesh communications technology, which provides two-way, hands-free communications for groups of up to 15 workers at a range of up to 3000 metres. It operates as an autonomous network, removing the need to install base stations, with each device working like a mini-communications hub in its own right, making it ideal and safe for busy teams on-site, offering robust, short-range critical comms.
