May 2019 – Groupe PG is proud to announce an investment of more than $3.5 million dollars that will be used to propel its products towards Forestry 4.0.
Basically, 4.0 is being described as the next technological revolution, characterized by intelligent automation and new technological solutions for a variety of sectors.
Groupe PG’s new investment will significantly improve the management of logging activities and forest-to-mill transportation. It will also allow for better exchanges of information between industry actors, helping them to save time, money and energy.
The investment, spread over the next 30 months, will improve supply predictability by establishing mill-to-forest equipment connectivity and will incorporate artificial intelligence into certain steps of the process.
Ultimately, tasks will be automated and duplicate inputs of information on forest supplies will be eliminated, significantly improving the efficiency, effectiveness, agility, strategic decision-making and competitive capacity of the forest industry as a whole.
