Global impacts from world events, natural disasters and other external factors have the power to shut down operations, halt production and silo your workforce. As a business leader, owner or dedicated employee, forecasting impediments to your business growth is as easy as guessing the weather during the third week of Quarter 4. Who knows or can predict that far in advance?
As an original equipment manufacturer, Bell is all too aware of external factors that can jump up out of nowhere and slow down operations. Which is why our Innovation department is committed to exploring technology that can serve businesses, especially during difficult times. With our Autonomous Pod Transport(APT) family, we have demonstrated how these vehicles can transport up to 70 lbs. of goods and perform beyond line-of-sight trips to separate locations. This innovation will harness autonomy and speed to transform warehouse to warehouse deliveries.
Our IT teams are also collaborating with Innovation on an operating system that can put these fleets into motion – Bell AerOS. For employees that may need to work remote or oversee operations in another state or country, keeping your work day flowing and goods moving through production can be accomplished through the unique vantage point Bell AerOS will offer. One desktop click or tap on your mobile device may be all it takes to satisfy your customers.
Thinking above and beyond is what we do. For more than 80 years, we’ve been reimagining the experience of flight – and where it can take us.
We are pioneers. We were the first to break the sound barrier and to certify a commercial helicopter. We were a part of NASA’s first lunar mission and brought advanced tiltrotor systems to market. Today, we’re defining the future of on-demand mobility.
Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas – as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Textron Inc., – we have strategic locations around the globe. And with nearly one quarter of our workforce having served, helping our military achieve their missions is a passion of ours.
Above all, our breakthrough innovations deliver exceptional experiences to our customers. Efficiently. Reliably. And always, with safety at the forefront.
