Automation In Logistics And Supply Chain

We’ll see advancements to where data and machine learning will predict delays, make decisions, and automate processes that ensure products reach customers regardless of disruptions from weather, traffic, and more.

On-premise cloud will allow remote logistics facilities to use modern, high-availability software architectures without sacrificing plant configurability. Highly simple, trainable process software will be key to future logistics facilities.

In logistics technology, we are likely to see more widespread automation through robotics and IoT integration with companies like Amazon and Clearpath leading the way in fulfillment and distribution.

Signal hubs are growing in popularity, several of them have been built for logistics companies already and are being used to improve prediction capabilities of these companies.

As the eCommerce cold war breaks out, logistics technology must expand to meet the growing expectations of the industry. Robotics and AI are the solutions that will help evolve the marketplace.

The logistics sector is evolving more rapidly than ever before due to the rising cost of labour, the decreasing cost of automation, and the powerhouse ecommerce organisations driving change in the retail sector.

New technology is making tracking mobile assets through the supply chain more sophisticated and effective with software and tools that allow teams to check on the status of shipments, and remotely access shipping documents for greater accuracy in workflows.

In an effort to either compete with or benefit from Amazon’s dominance, systems are going to grow more integrated beyond shopping cart platforms. Look for full-stop integration between PoS apps and major logistics firms themselves (UPS/DHL/FedEx).
