What is a Social Supply Chain?

Social supply chain is using "social media technology" all across the entire supply chain : from supplier's suppliers to customer's customers. It means integration of social media technologies (collaboration, sharing) to connect and encompass the participants across the whole supply chain.
The customer-facing side of companies is getting busier. Customers use social media to connect with their peers from a marketing standpoint to promote and advertise their services and capabilities. Social media is now particularly important in customer service environments. Consumers are able to communicate with customer service departments through Twitter and Facebook.
In the supply chain, companies have begun using social media to work with suppliers, vendors and customers. As an example, they can have discussions on issues and arrive at a concensus. The Forum for Supply Chain Integration

ec-bp was established in 2005 as the advocate for lowering the barriers to the adoption of EDI, and our email newsletter has been published every month since that time. Our focus has expanded beyond EDI to encompas the full gamut of supply chain practices and technologies. In addition, our readership has grown to become the largest of any similarly focused publication, and has expanded to include more than 90,000 professionals involved in nearly every aspect of the supply chain.
Today’s supply chain is more than simple transport of EDI documents. The complexity of maintaining compliance with trading partners, managing the ever increasing amount of data, and analyzing that data to drive constant improvement in processes and service take supply chain professionals far beyond the basics of mapping EDI documents.

Waste Recycling used to be a "ho-hum" it is important to the future of our Planet. Thanks to a lot of publicity, most of us even know the "Four R's" of waste management: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover.

Simply filling holes in the ground with waste is no longer an option.The challenge is to reduce our waste and carbon footprint; make useful products; make energy. Yes, I said make energy: how about a biodegrading vegetable that turns into energy in a green energy landfill that uses landfill gas to produce energy?

The publicity that waste management produces is fantastic: one recycled glass bottle will power a computer for 25 minutes; recycling one aluminum can will save enough energy to run a TV for 3 hours. And waste management is on the move too. Now instead of huge collection bins in neighborhoods and shopping centers, solar-powered compactors are being introduced.

The first garbage trucks were open top dump trucks not designed specifically to haul garbage. But the open top truck let small items fly out and smells too. So in the 1920s covered body trucks were designed to handle hauling of garbage.

The manufacturer of the refuse body is usually separate from the chassis. So here are some of the companies developing refuse bodies:
1930s-1940s covered hoppers by Heil, Leach, Garwood
1920s-1950s rotary loaders by Keller & Knappisch, Garwood, City Tank
1930s to 1950s rear loader compactors by Garwood, Leach, Heil
In 1938 the Garwood Load Packer revolutionized the industry with a compactor in the truck itself.
1940s to 1950s side loader compactors by PakMor, M-B Packer
1950s to 1980s front end loaders by Dempster, Garwood, Heil The Heil Colectomatic used a combination of a lifting loading hopper and a sweeper blade to clear and compact garbage in anticipation of the next load. 1955 brought the Dempster Dumpmaster (first front loader).

Classifications of garbage trucks

* Front loaders generally service commercial and industrial sites using dumpsters (UK term is large wheelie bins).
They have large prongs on the front which are carefully aligned with arms on the dumpster. The dumpster is then lifted over the truck, until it is upside-down and the trash will then fall out into the receptacle.

* Rear loaders commonly service residential areas. They have an opening at the rear that a trash collector can throw garbage bags or empty the contents of trash cans into. The rear loader is usually equipped with some type of compactor that will compress the garbage, and move it towards the front of the vehicle.

* Side loaders are versions of either front or rear loaders that lift small trash containers or have openings on either side to deposit trash. Some side loaders are equipped with a mechanical remote-control arm that grasps a trash container such as a wheeled bin and empties it into the truck in the same manner as front loaders.

* Pneumatic collection, almost a 24 ton vacuum cleaner. On the top it has a crane with a tube and a mouthpiece that fits in a hole, usually hidden under a plate under the sidewalk. From here it will suck up garbage from an underground installation. The system usually allows the driver to "pick up" the garbage, even if the access is blocked by cars, snow or other barriers.

There are also larger trucks that carry trash over long distances, usually modified dump trucks.

Garbage trucks empty their trash in landfills or combustion facilities. Most rear loaders lift the rear section so that the garbage will spill out. Front loaders more commonly have a moving wall that pushes the garbage out. Some larger landfills tip the entire truck.

Other improvements to garbage trucks

The main difficulty with early trucks was that the garbage collectors needed to lift the trash to shoulder height. The first technique developed in the late 20s to solve this problem was to build round compartments with massive corkscrews that would lift the load and bring it away from the rear. A more efficient model was the development of the hopper in 1929. It solved this problem by developed a cable system that a could pull garbage into the truck.

In 1937 George Dempster invented the Dempster-Dumpster system in which wheeled garbage containers were mechanically tipped into the garbage truck. His containers were known as Dumpsters, so here is where that word came from.

Operators want a fully automated garbage truck that could do away with all but the driver. Some cities do have these systems, but they are generally unable to deal with unexpected situations.

As well as garbage trucks, we have heard them referred to as trash truck, waste collection vehicle, refuse truck, dustcart, or sometimes dustbin wagon in the U.K.

A waste collection vehicle (WCV), or colloquially called a 'Garbage Truck', 'Dustcart', 'Sanitation Truck' or 'Dustbin lorry' is a truck specially designed to pick up smaller quantities of waste and haul it to landfills and other recycling or treatment facilities. They are a common sight in most urban areas.

La direction du nettoiement is the "direction of cleaning" and is critical to the cleanliness of the city.
This organization encompasses not only garbage trucks, but sweepers, vacuums, water trucks. Some of the trucks are true "mini's"! One of their missions is FRAP (in French: la Force Rapide Action Propreté). This is the Rapid Action Force for Cleanliness. Its main mission is to answer any intervention in 2 hours in order to fight effectively against the dirtiness, which undermines the framework of life and the environment of our city.

Walter Snow Fighter The roads to the ski stations are close (in respect to distance) to Nice, but they are a lot different. December 2008 saw avalanches. Before anybody starts running Olympics there, someone has to get serious about snow fighting. You can't use a little "city plow" like the one at the bottom. You need a modern version of the one at the left. It is a 1949 Walter Snow Fighter from snow country ( New Hartford, New York). Truck has a "V" plow in front and "wing" on one side. Four Wheel Drive? But, of course. Look at the chains!
