The industrial business unit ArcelorMittal Brasil Longos, based in Juiz de Fora – MG, leads an innovative Industrial Logistics Master Plan program called Intelligent Logistics, comprising a series of projects. This plan was conceived in 2018. In 2019 it was already possible to carry out the first proofs of concept and, even during the entire period of the pandemic (2020/2021) it remained active and strong in its objectives of producing results and delivering the first technological solutions that operate In real time.
In 2021, the project is already showing its fruits, reaching its maturity with the Rollout actions in the Industrial plants. The creator and Project Leader, Wanderson Guedes Terror, Project Specialist & IT and TA Solutions – ArcelorMittal presents the first Technological Innovation packages:
