60% AUTOMATION POTENTIAL for Transport & Logistics Industry *McKinsey, A Future That Works
Logistics and supply chain must operate at a high speed and precision to ensure smooth operations right from origin to destination. Firms have typically been operating on legacy systems and do not have access to real-time visibility on their entire operations.
There are many manual processes in the logistics and supply chain process which cause severe delays, and these can ideally be eliminated almost entirely by deploying RPA (Robotic Process Automation).
While finance and accounting, human resources, IT, administration, and procurement have been automated by some companies in this space, there are still several other areas that can potentially be automated such as ordering, scheduling, and tracking of deliveries, automating email communications, capturing, researching, and closing out loads and much more.
As this is a high volume sector, RPA is the perfect solution as it reduces the burden on the human workforce, and digital workers (BOTs) are far more effective when it comes to performing rules-based and repetitive tasks.
In the transport and logistics industry, inventory management is identified as one of the main areas for AI application, followed by quality control, customer care, monitoring and diagnostics, cybersecurity, and fraud detection.
Through the implementation of AI, businesses can create smarter manufacturing and distribution centers. AI has the capacity to understand complex real-time inventory control dynamics, predict scenarios, recommend actions, and act accordingly. This is just one example of a transformative application.
