How E-commerce is transforming the B2B Sector ?

 2020 may be watershed in the entire history of e-commerce due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The year leading up to now has witnessed growth in online marketplaces and delivery services. The pandemic prompted a race to migrate operations online and, companies that invested in digitalization had the upper hand.

Owing to growth in e-commerce, B2B business relationships have started to undergo speedy transformation. B2B sector relied on face-to-face interactions to gain and retain clients. It also has a complex and lengthier sales cycle. The orders are customized, placed in higher volumes, and involve bigger transactions as compared to B2C. Despite all the difference, B2B customers expect the same user experience as B2C customers, viz. user-friendly platform, ease of access, quick check out, and secure transactions. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Analytics have been used in commercial ecosystem. In the recent times, these technologies have been integrated into production and supply chains. B2B companies have also been able to build resilience by integration of platforms and services rather than the previous linear approach. 

However, for the successful transition, a B2B business has to overcome some key challenges. 

1. Infrastructure 

Availability of infrastructure determines which business and regions will better adapt to the transformation and possibly emerge as leaders. 

2. Logistics 

The pace of orders placed in a B2B environment is faster via e-commerce. Hence, the business must be equipped to keep up with the logistical requirements. The deliveries must be speedy to encourage customer adoption. 

3. Building trust in integrity of the e-commerce system 

This might be the most important task of all. For a B2B business that hasn’t operated on an e-commerce platform, building trust of its clients in the integrity of the system is very crucial. 

The on-going pandemic has fast-tracked digital transformation creating a golden opportunity for B2B businesses. The ball is now in the court of B2B businesses to make the most of it. Lucky Group is a leading name in Dubai scrap trading, a trusted name amongst the varied recycling companies in UAE. It is also one of the most prominent suppliers of recycled metal to businesses in the country. It has committed to digitizing their models and deriving more competitive advantage than their slower-moving peers.

Recycling Robots

 …how is it revolutionizing the scrap business?


Recycling robots have been accelerating the recycling process. But what are recycling robots? These are highly capable and multitasking systems that are deployed for waste processing and recycling in a host of industries. These robots can function 24/7, are fast, accurate, and capable of processing heavy load of waste materials. 

Such robots have been instrumental in the recent times more than ever. For instance, when the world is coping with pandemic, it became a matter of concern for many involved in manual segregation to operate with scrap that could possibly infect them. 

The recycling robot is our shot at preventing 12 billion metric tones of plastic ending up in landfills. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/article/plastic-produced-recycling-waste-ocean-trash-debris-environment#close. The advancements made in robotics harnesses artificial intelligence to sort trash. The cameras and high-tech systems are instrumental in detecting and picking up the desired scrap. 

Recycling robots have been noticed to work twice as fast as humans. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/26/meet-the-robots-being-used-to-help-solve-americas-recycling-crisis.html. Not only plastic, but these robots can distinguish between type, texture, color, and material of the scrap. Bjorstaddalen has the first robotic sorting facility for C&D and C&I waste in Norway. The automated stations are provided by ZenRobotics. It can sort the construction and demolition materials using the colour coded cameras, laser sensors, and metal detectors equipped to make as many as 6000 picks per hour.

With an automated system that has higher rate of pick up and accuracy, recycling robots are also equipped to store the information of the materials picked and use it for quality control. This leads to better results in recycling, in fact it generates value. 

For example, the recycling robot can be programmed to segregate metals from other scrap materials such as rubber, plastic, paper, etc. They can be further be programmed to segregate metal scraps according to their types, shapes, and forms.

Many metal recycling companies are turning to recycling robots for optimizing recycling efforts. In places like Dubai scrap yards and many other recycling companies in UAE where metal scrap is dealt in huge amounts, recycling robots could become indispensable part of the industry. Could it replace human workforce in the scrap metal industry completely? Only time will tell.

We have explored many aspects of recycled metals in previous blogs. Today we will see where does recycled metal scrap goes next.  Recycled metal has plethora of uses – it is never wasted. Scrap metals like copper, iron, aluminum, steel, and others are collected from Dubai scrap yards recycled at metal recycling companies in Dubai and reused in the following ways: 

Industrial Use

Construction projects use huge volumes of iron and steel. They are also used extensively for building infrastructure like roads and bridges. In the transportation industry, steel is used in the manufacturing of vehicles, aircrafts, etc. Iron, especially cast-iron recycling holds a lot of potential as it is used for variety of structural and decorative purposes. 

Packaging 

Recycled scrap metals like steel and aluminum are commonly reused as new food packaging. Most canned goods use a significant percentage of recycled metal and many are made from 100% recycled scrap metals. 

Recycled scrap metal can reappear on shelves as a new food or beverage container with a quick turnaround time of around 2 months. This process is extremely efficient and economical. Additionally, recycled aluminum requires less processing and as a result, also reduces emission of greenhouse gases than new aluminum. This makes the production of packaging using recycled metal both eco-friendlier and more cost-effective as compared to creating cans using new aluminum.

Home Furnishings

If we take a good look around our house, we will stumble upon many instances wherein recycled metal has been put to use. Furnishings, fixtures, and lighting make use of recycled metal components. Metal roofing these days sometimes are made completely out of recycled metals. 

Various artists have got creative and used the scrap metal to create modern artwork and d├ęcor material. It has been instrumental in inspiring people in reusing and recycling rather than replacing the decor with new items. 

Copper is an important component in a common household. Recycled copper is used in structure of a household, plumbing materials, cable, and heat exchanges. It is also used in air conditioning systems. 

Right from industrial and manufacturing to household, recycled metal scrap is used in all shapes and forms. Dubai scrap trading provide you with endless possibilities and innovations that you can discover when you choose to recycle your scrap metal. 

Lucky Recycling, part of Lucky Group is one of the largest recycling companies in the UAE. It aims to create a sustainable future for the planet and the coming generations with their conscious recycling efforts.

Single Stream Recycling

Since, 1973 the Lucky Group of Companies has been on the forefront when it comes to scrap metal trading as one of the leading recycling companies in the UAE.

The company’s innovative efforts to recycle scrap metals from landfills across the globe with their headquarters in Dubai, U.A.E. Most of us here in Dubai have probably heard of recycling, but single stream recycling? Well, it simply refers to putting all types of recyclable materials together and let a private company handle the segregating bit.

Research shows that recycling has worked better in towns and cities abroad like in the United States when single channel recycling was introduced. No longer did people have to take the trouble to segregate different types of recyclable items and separate the trash that they were trying to get rid off on a daily basis. It became a success because there was little effort required in segregating garbage from the recyclable items and that people would quickly adapt to it; whereas normally they would dump garbage altogether and avoid the original complex recycling process as a whole.

Single stream recycling can also save money because companies that handle such recyclable items pay for those items. The government thus, no longer needs to pay landfills to get rid of such garbage. How does this help the environment? Well, it simply speeds up the whole process because everyone at every level of the hierarchy is co-operating and when this happens, the right recyclable items get channeled onto the right path eventually reaching the manufacturers on time with environmentally sustainable in a cost effective way.

If an aluminum can reaches at scrap metals yard in Dubai on time, it prevents the need for manufacturers to purchase virgin materials to keep their production numbers up and running. In a similar way the quicker the different types of ferrous metal scrap lands up at Dubai scrap yards, the lesser will be the requirement for newer and rarer earth metals across different industries.

Single stream recycling not only encourages recycling, but clears up the bottlenecks in the recycling process.

What affects the value of Scrap Metals?

Anyone involved in metal recycling is aware of fluctuations in its value. In this blog, we want to shed light on some factors that may affect the value of scrap metals. 

Production and Energy costs

The cost of energy and production has a significant effect on the price of scrap metal. These include cost incurred for gas, oil, and other sources of electricity. If the costs of processing are high, the price that is offered for scrap metal may drop to make up for the difference. 

Supply and Demand

Just like any other commodity, the demand and supply make an evident.

Quality and Quantity

The value of scrap is highly dependent on the quality. Scrap metals covered in corrosion or insulation would not bring the value as much as clean, high quality scrap metal would do. 
Imagine trading a pound of aluminum cans vs trading a truckload of aluminum scrap. Obviously, the truckload will fetch you more revenue. If the scrap buyers in Dubai get more scrap metal with lower overhead, including a lower number of transactions and transportation, they can offer a higher price.

Location

Most of the times, the scrap metal is not fully processed at the Dubai scrap yards. The scrap is transported for further processing. If the processing location is farther from the scrap yard, it will affect the overall costs, thereby reducing your profit margins. The buyers may also consider the transportation cost into the prices they offer for the scrap metal to protect their individual profits.

Price of Virgin Metal

Virgin metals are those metals that are newly mined and have not ever been used, recycled, or processed. If virgin metals are expensive owing to the energy and production costs, supply and demand; scrap metal becomes more valuable as an alternative. Similarly, if the virgin metal prices fall, scrap metal becomes less essential and industries can afford virgin metals.

International Commodity Trading

With countries getting more active in the industry, foreign market fluctuations influence the value of scrap metal. India and China, for example, deal with very large quantities of scrap metal imports. In case the economy slows down, scrap metal prices can take a hit as well. It is important to keep an eye on market trends to determine the right time to trade scrap metals to get the maximum value. 

Lucky Group is the leading metal scrap buyer in Dubai and one of the largest recycling companies in the U.A.E. The company has spearheaded recycling initiatives to build a sustainable future for the planet. We guarantee the best value in market for the scrap metal.

Smart Generation Smart Recycling

 With the advancement of technology, many research work has started to  pay attention to the importance and necessity of smart education programs enabling users to learn more effectively, efficiently, flexibly and comfortably because traditional learning approach has been criticized for not able to meet the needs of today’s society. So it is necessary to design new learning environments, both technically and educationally.

A smart approach through which we can educate our children about recycling and to understand the importance of caring our environment is by taking their recycling duties seriously. Today’s generation use smart mobile devices and digital resources for communications, learning, and entertainment in their everyday lives to learn in any place and at any time.

Recycling different waste products is very important. There are many metal recycling companies in Dubai. But this should be done on a very large scale. If only a few of us contribute towards it then it will not benefit the environment as much as it should. It is often observed that in families children waste many things. It is necessary to educate your little ones on recycling benefits.

Advise your children on three things first:

Reduce: You can tell your kids not to waste things by buying things in abundance.

Reuse: Most of the kids don’t know how to reuse. Parents should teach them in a playful manner, the art of reusing items for example using cartons which comes with packaging items that can be reused for your school assignments which will never go unappreciated. 

Recycle: Kids have grown up seeing things used only for one purpose. By making different craft works and from using scrap in your house will give them an idea to think twice  before throwing something away or buying something that won’t be useful.

Also some of the smart activities that will help kids understand what recycling is and how they can be part of it for example:

Books are our best friends, buy books for them to understand the environment and teach them what happens when you don’t care for the environment.

Question them to find out things that can be recycle and reuse all over your home.

Encourage them to jot down the items what can or can’t be recycled like steel, glass, plastic, paper, aluminium cans that can be recycled.  Lucky Recycling is an environmental active and conscious body. It participates in events promoting safety of the environment.  Lucky Group proudly announced to be part of recent can collection campaign organized by EEG Emirates Environmental Group, U.A.E on 27th February 2021.

Show online recycling programmes to teach them how to take care of the earth through YouTube channels or some online educational sites.

Look at your surrounding go to the beach, park, malls and point out the trash which is harmful for our environment.
