Once produced, our smartphones are packaged. ABB systems help the pulp and paper industry to produce at optimal quality, continuously monitoring the process so that the least amount of raw material is used for this packaging. The journey continues – our smartphones are shipped. Cargo vessels are the most efficient way to move goods in terms of energy use per ton transported. ABB’s power, propulsion, instruments, analyzers and software allow ships to cross the seas more efficiently, optimize their route to increase safety of crew and cargo, and reduce the fuel needed. Once at port, the cargo is discharged, through automated and often unmanned cranes, enabled by ABB’s systems, making it a safer place to work.
Then the phone enters our daily lives, needing to be charged, with power generated from a range of sources. ABB helps energy producers provide reliable and affordable energy by au-tomating their plants, by helping them monitor, manage and reduce emissions through ana-lytical equipment, and by supporting the transition to more renewable sources.
