Success Story

Enhanced tracking of Chemical Waste and Clinical Waste Consignment for the Environmental Protection Department

Project Overview:

Tradelink was awarded a contract by the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) in May 2020 for the “Provision of Service for an Enhanced Tracking of Chemical Waste and Clinical Waste Consignment”. Under this 44-month contract, Tradelink is responsible for developing a Waste Consignment Management System (WCMS) and providing continuous operational support to over 40,000 users of the system including waste producers, collectors and disposal sites.

Built on our Transportation Management System, the WCMS digitalizes EPD’s existing paper-based trip ticket system used for monitoring and surveillance of chemical and clinical waste collection process through a web-based system and with the use of smartphone application and smart cards. The WCMS also allows data integration with EPD’s computer system thus enabling EPD officers to have a real time tracking and monitoring of the waste consignment progress.


Benefits:
  • Saves paper and manpower
  • Improves chemical waste and clinical waste consignment visibility and data accuracy
  • Increases enforcement efficiency

Enhanced fleet scheduling, tracking and reporting for a Government Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling contractor

Project Overview:

As our first project in the recycling/environment protection industry confirmed in late 2019, Tradelink was appointed by a Government WEEE recycling contractor to develop a Transportation Management System (TMS) /Warehouse Management System (WMS) solution to enhance its existing WEEE collection tracking system to meet the regulatory requirement of the Environmental Protection Department (EPD).

Leveraging AI and data analytics, our TMS integrates with the client’s ERP system and enables the client to optimize its fleet scheduling and routing based on pre-defined algorithm with specific parameters such as parking height and road load limit to handle up to 1,000 WEEE collection/delivery orders a day.
