Sourcing New Solutions for a Major Global Trading and Logistics Company

Executive Summary

A major global trading and logistics company commissioned Leading Edge Only to create their own Innovation Network to source new solutions in Advanced Drone Technology for Pest and Disease (P&D) Spraying for an ongoing project. 

They were seeking a collaboration to help them mechanise and automate operations for oil palm plantations.

The Outcome

Our client's Challenge included a descriptive brief, with a range of different requirements which they wanted solution providers to adhere to. 

The LEO team were highly successful in bringing forward a range of relevant innovations which our client had not yet heard of, and provided them with solutions from tech companies and multiple universities. 

Our client was extremely impressed with the speed and diversity of the innovations and the automatic vetting that ensured relevancy.


“The LEO team were extremely helpful in sourcing a range of relevant new solutions and went beyond our expectations by also setting up meetings on our behalf and gathering further information from innovators. This helped us quickly determine those we wished to progress to more detailed conversations. LEO reduced our planned timeframe in finding the best solutions from months to a few weeks.”
