2022 was a year of tremendous growth for us and we have expanded operations and embarked on exciting new projects in our key markets Singapore, Japan, Philippines and Thailand.
Back in July, SWAT signed an MOU with Thailand Post Distribution to use our AI-powered system to automate route planning and optimise load utilisation.
We had the pleasure of hosting the board members from Thailand Post in our HQ office in Singapore after the successful conclusion of our project.
SWAT received the Supply Chain Innovator of the Year (Startup) award at the Supply Chain Asia Awards. This marks our very first accolade within the logistics industry.
SWAT has been actively involved in public on-demand projects with city governments and transport operators, to help promote better efficiency of public transport, while creating a positive environmental impact by reducing carbon emissions.
In collaboration with JTC Corporation, SWAT has been operating an on-demand service for commuters in the past year, to help improve last-mile connectivity in the one-north district and reduce carbon emissions through the usage of EVs.
SWAT Mobility, together with Mitaka City, Sakai Kotsu and Kotobuki Kotsu, is operating an on-demand transport to improve convenience in the Osawa district in Tokyo - A service that was covered recently by Nikkei MJ.
In this ski season, SWAT launched the Hakuba Night Demand Taxi in partnership with Japan’s Alpico Transportation and Hakuba Village, to pilot an AI-powered on-demand taxi ride-sharing service for tourists.
SWAT has an ongoing partnership to analyse and visualise the ridership data of Kitakyushu city buses, to help predict demand and improve operations to make public transportation more convenient and efficient. In our preliminary study to revise routing schedules which wrapped earlier this year, our proposal is backed by results such as a 45% reduction in operation costs and 40% reduction in CO2 emissions.
From October 2022 to February 2023, SWAT is working with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government to analyse public bus ridership in Machida City for an environmental campaign.
After visualising and contrasting the carbon emissions associated with public bus versus private car use, our results showed that emissions from riding a bus are about 1/3 of the emissions from car use.
In the Philippines, to address commuting issues and the insurmountable traffic for employees, we launched a pay-per-ride transport that aimed to provide affordable and direct commutes, with reasonable fares.
The service has the potential to reach up to 40,000 employees at full roll-out. Learn more in the feature by the Cebu Daily News.
And that's a wrap on our 2022! 🎬
We look forward to another amazing year ahead with even more meaningful accomplishments and exciting new projects.
