| |MAY 20205Logistics is an industry segment that is in some way or other contributing to all other industry domains. Supply chain plays an important role in manufacturing as well as in delivery. Be it the movement raw material for production or the delivery of the finished product, logistics is involved everywhere. In recent years, we have seen rapid advancement of the logistics industry in areas like artificial intelligence, blockchain, advanced analytics, and automation, to name a few. These technologies have evolved faster than ever while startups with even newer solutions and innovations continue mushrooming. Research shows that artificial intelligence (AI) is better at predicting outcomes and making projections than unaided human cognition. Many businesses have started implementing AI in their logistics operations to improve speed, enhance supply chain productivity and curb operating costs. In the coming years, AI is expected to continue redefining the world of logistics with innovative offerings such as machine learning algorithms, advanced geocoding abilities, route optimization, demand prediction, warehouse automation and more. Another boon to the sector has been the emergence of blockchain technology that has enabled logistics companies to foolproof digital contracts. Use of this technology allows the different stakeholders of the logistics industry such as manufacturers, suppliers, customers, auditors, warehouse managers, and others to create a transparent and efficient system for recording transactions, tracking assets, and managing all documents involved in the logistics process. What is more, solid procurement practices and stronger relationships with suppliers are being considered a priority in the supply chain process, allowing the procurement department to utilize the business data on suppliers to enhance supply chain decisions.
