How Automation Is Revolutionizing Logistics Industry?by Ankita Sehgal Freelance Blogger, Lives in New Delhi
Many industries have already become automated and logistics has put its foot forward into this new era. There are several distribution centers around the world which have already become completely automated. For many, it is limited to workflow automation in managing the advanced warehousing mechanism. Many others have an automatic robotic system which helps with all the locomotion and transportation inside the warehouse.
With a system operated the manual process, the efficiency of a warehouse definitely increases; however a fully automated system in a warehouse will help build specialized storages with larger productivity value. Robotics will bring the option to cut down a lot of manpower from the storages and along with that cost of maintenance and loss through manual errors. The leading logistics companies in India will soon own this technology.
As the warehousing s going to revolutionize through modern technology and automation, so should the transportation. For a long time tests have been conducted on automated cars and trucks in Australia and Japan which on its success would revolutionize the transport department of the supply chain. There would be a huge cost cutting and reduction after the successful testing of safety and accuracy of autonomous vehicles as they will be driven with artificial intelligence and the job is expected to be carried out with more diligence. It is going to be one of the top trends in logistics department in the coming year of 2018. Once this technology reaches our land we will see a competition between logistics companies to become the best logistics services in India.
Shared economy taking over the world and through some of the largest technical platforms, it has created a big confusion in between the service providers and technology companies. This blurred line between service providers and technology platforms will be cleared in 2018 and the complete logistics arrangements will prevail with time.
Supply chain companies are going to change the way their CSR works. For a long time there had been a demand of more transparent work system in the logistics companies and soon enough the association of the Supply chain companies across the world are going to establish new rules for their social and ecological responsibilities. The major turfs on which talks are ongoing are the reduction of excess consumption of limited resources and control in the carbon footprint release into the environment.
