The transportation and logistics industry has seen an immense revolution in the past few years. The modern technologies have transformed consumer preferences too in terms of daily business operations, supply chain management, and home deliveries. Apart from that, the concerned companies are highly focusing on safety, innovation, and compliance with the increasing demands of consumers. The year 2020 has begun, and it has several exciting things in store to skyrocket business strategies. Easy availability of automation technology, the introduction of 5G, Machine Learning, IoT, Blockchain among others are going to take the transportation industry by storm.
Today, transportation is pushing the boundaries of business strategies with mobile application development, increasingly becoming fast-paced and highly accessible. The scenario is going to change even more with the implementation of some of the following technologies in various other applications:
Shipment tracking is now more accessible than it ever was, with a customized and personalized shipment tracking system that serves the customers 24/7. It enhances user-experience and saves cost for the company by allowing customers to manage and monitor their shipments. It sends personalized notifications with customized reports and cargo-related information.
Technology is also heading towards the computer-controlled aerial vehicle to deliver packages. Drones are not yet that popular, but Amazon has already announced the same. Autonomous vehicles are another breakthrough where driverless cars are navigating the delivery routes and creating efficient delivery processes.
Mobile apps are also transforming the industry by leaps and bounds by promoting logistics service providers. Businesses can develop apps for managing inventory and fleet, barcode scanning, shipment and order tracking among many others. Apps are highly useful for pulling out customer information with Big Data analysis and satisfy their demands.
Blockchain emerged as one of the most definite contenders for increasing traceability and transparency in supply chain operations. Most importantly, participants can quickly make the payments to the partners in a supply chain after completing their part of linked activities with the Blockchain technology. Food and beverage industry can immensely benefit from it for transporting goods in a supply chain. It also helps in monitoring temperature changes while moving products in the pharmaceutical industry.
The RFID technology has assisted the companies in tracking their inventory and saving labour costs. With a sensor or tag placed on the items, the company processes the data received through radio waves. Barcodes are a step ahead of RFID in delivering speedy information and data processing. RFIDs and Barcodes help in distributing, tracking, and monitoring warehouse containers.
IoT is a significant enhancement for the supply chain by decreasing costs and avoiding risks. The transport vehicles like cargo, ships, trains, cabs, of such companies have in-built sensors connected to an alarm system for tracking and monitoring their real-time location. The sensors help the crew in gaining essential insights for hidden risks and enable accuracy in delivering goods.
Robots have already entered the technology arena and are now delivering goods to customers with robotic shuttle systems. The most significant benefit of such systems is that they have higher storage capacity and flexibility because of their dynamically free movement. The agility of robots eliminates many restrictions on the route and enhances the potential of productivity and align perfectly with operational needs.
Logistics companies regularly ingest tremendous amounts of historical and real-time data. By preparing it according to the operations and applying ML algorithms, they can form predictions that are valuable for their future business strategies. ML has immense capabilities for optimizing existing assets and supply chains and predict the time required for completing a task in certain situations.
