Driving Digital Transformation in the Logistics Industry

Logistics Industry is going through a transformative phase, and it is witnessing an increased adoption of emerging technologies as new entrants are shaking up the sector and customer expectations are skyrocketing. The industry now demands faster, cheaper, reliable, and sustainable delivery services and companies have started leveraging intelligent material handling equipment, autonomous vehicles and several other advancements. The technologies that are shaping the logistics industry includes RPA, Intelligent Automation, AI, Machine learning, Blockchain, Analytics, the Internet of Things, among others. Team 10xDS is driving digital transformations in the logistics industry around the globe by leveraging our expertise.

Challenges for Logistics Industry

Many traditional logistics companies lack a high level of visibility and the touchpoints in the value chain are not connected via digital infrastructure. The major contributing factor for this is the fact that legacy systems and data silos are not able to integrate with the newer technologies. Moreover, manual processes are holding back the ability of logistics companies to handle huge transaction volume, even as the sector is now benefitting from the adoption of ERP Supply Chain Management modules. In this digital, global era, it is very difficult for traditional logistics companies to improve their competitive position and even to maintain it. The traditional companies must adapt to this new digital age and embrace the latest technologies to evolve, especially because of the several competitive advantages gained by businesses that understand how to make the most of these opportunities.

Harnessing the Emerging Technologies

Logistics industry is a crucial pillar for several industries ranging from retail, eCommerce, energy, health care and others. To stay in the competition these companies have started aggressively embracing new technologies to enable greater efficiency and collaborative working models. While autonomous vehicles is quickly gaining more adoption in the industry, emerging technologies like Intelligent automation (IA), Analytics, AI, and others are also gaining traction more than ever. Big data and real-time analytics will have a huge impact on how the logistics functions would be conducted. Logistics providers have enormous amounts of data related to various aspects and this can help them anticipate by creating new business models that adapt to the requirements for optimal operating efficiency. Another major advancement is IoT, and it offers the ability to securely monitor equipment and environment, and companies can take actions before the problem arises. It will also help increase the connectivity speed and reduce the overall costs by providing access to real-time visibility of operations.
