Future trends in transport & logistics

Supply chain technology leaders aiming to understand future risks and opportunities related to supply chain technology are recommended to:

  • Identify appropriate use cases for goods-to-person (G2P) robotic systems within your operations by studying travel patterns in each of your warehouses, specifically looking for backlogs caused by the pandemic that will be easy targets for G2P systems

  • Codify requirements around transportation visibility by initiating discussions with internal stakeholders and external customers

  • Analyze your current application portfolio and underlying technology architecture to evaluate which approach is a better fit, utilizing control-tower-like capabilities within a SCM platform or on top of a data lake

  • Determine how many technology-related activities are being conducted within supply chain and decide if better supply chain technology leadership would make them more impactful

  • Consult with existing technology solution providers to understand their ability to leverage AI and analytics tools and understand their strategic vision in this regard and its alignment with your business goals and objectives

The Digital Imperative in Freight Forwarding

Considerations for companies:

A wave of digital disruption is about to hit sea and air freight forwarders. Startups, suppliers, and even customers are using digital technologies to develop a variety of innovative business models that will dramatically improve the customer experience and eliminate entrenched operational inefficiencies.

These digital business models have the potential to overturn the dominant position traditional forwarders have long held in the industry.

Traditional forwarders that wish to survive have no choice but to digitize. By our estimate, automating manual processes now could reduce certain back-office and operations costs by up to 40%, while digitizing significant parts of the sales process could reduce related direct costs even more. And as the new business models gain traction over the long term, digital capabilities will open up tremendous opportunities to win in the marketplace.
