The recent past has seen a gigantic shift in the logistics industry with technology taking the front seat. Smartphone apps and GPS technology have already blurred the boundaries between factories and roads, while sophisticated tracking software is making it easier and faster to deliver shipments, manage schedules, monitor cargo, plan routes, and avoid delays. The upshot of all these advancements is clear—faster, cheaper, and sustainable circulation of goods.
The innovative technologies will only continue to evolve in the days to come. In tandem, logistics companies have begun revamping their IT capabilities to accommodate technological trends like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and robotics. There is an evident rise of collaborative robots in packaging, picking, shipping, and delivery. In future, global e-commerce and omnichannel commerce companies are expected to use fully automated robotic systems for order fulfillment warehousing and delivery operations. Alongside, the adoption of intuitive cloud-based transportation management systems (TMS) is also anticipated to soar to keep up with the increased demand for transparency and visibility across the logistics operations. Aligned with the modern needs of the industry, the new age TMS promises greater security, faster implementation, and reduced downtime.
