Overcoming challenges in the cargo and logistics industries through technology
Logistics and freight struggle to keep up with their competition with the shift to online shopping. Businesses are moving away from traditional brick-and-mortar establishments towards this new form of e-commerce that offers benefits for both customers and sellers.
In an industry that has been slow to adapt, logistics and freight companies must now focus on delivering quality customer service while optimizing their current operations.
The main challenges they face include:
- Real-time visibility into available inventory at a given location
The supply chain needs to track and manage inventory from multiple warehouses, stores, or locations. It requires a labor force and efficient software for data sharing across the supply chain. As a result, companies gain higher levels of transparency.
- Manpower Management
In logistics and freight, companies need a faster, smarter, and more organized workforce system to log all the incoming and outgoing products.
The system must provide companies with information about where their employees are, what they're doing, and how to best utilize the company's human force.
- Data sharing across the supply chain
The more data shared across the supply chain, the more transparency it creates, which enables better decisions for businesses. This change makes it possible for any company along the supply chain (manufacturer, retailer, warehouse, etc.) to provide their customers with a full view of the product.
- Search for more efficient ways to handle, transport, and store inventory
Automation of manual processes within the warehouse, including manually entering data into systems, is time-consuming and prone to errors.
Advancement in technologies offers more automation tools that increase the accuracy and speed of data entry. Using robotic process automation, for example, utilizes software robots to perform complex business processes.
- Expanding into New Markets
Companies are finding new ways to get their products to market faster and generate more sales. This expansion will ultimately help them grow their business operations.
